Kenneth Polite Jr. is wrapping up his first full week as the new US Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana.
High on his priority list is likely selecting his top assistants — and making sure recent history is not repeated.
Jim talks with longtime Louisiana politico Vincent Bruno about the departure of U.S. Attorney Jim Letten, and Carlos Marcello's influence on Louisiana politics of the past.
And, Jim chats with child prodigy Polite Stewart, who enrolled at Southern University at 12 years of age. Stewart graduates from Southern this month.
