Politics of the Past

Our continuing search of state Treasury records (www.latreasury.com) has found more unclaimed property refunds from the “politics of the past” in Louisiana. The New York-based John Kerry for President campaign can claim $1,332 in state tax refunds. John Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, lost Louisiana to Republican President George W. Bush. Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas also lost a presidential bid here and closed his old Louisiana campaign headquarters in Metairie without claiming a $78 utility deposit. Former Gov. Kathleen Blanco’s Inauguration and Transition headquarters can collect at least $38 in state tax refunds and deposits, records show. Finally, Avis M. Russell, former city attorney during Mayor Marc Morial’s administration, can reclaim a $165 utility deposit for her 2000 campaign for a Civil District Court judgeship. Russell now practices law in Washington, D.C.
