Is Greg Tarver Legally Voting In Shreveport?

Hmm…does anyone really care?

Probably not until state senator Gregory Tarver launched an anti-Adrian Perkins media campaign that included Traver bragging about his Shreveport voting record.

But guess who lives outside the city limits?

Tarver admitted the same. He said he was using an address of property owned in Shreveport.

He actually lives in a big house on Cross Lake—conveniently outside the city limits.

The Caddo tax assessor records reflect that Tarver owns a 50% interest in a vacant resident located at 1135 Pierre Avenue in Shreveport.

Louisiana law provides that citizens can register to vote in the municipality in which they are “an actual bona fide resident.”

Those persons who file a homestead exemption are presumed to be residents of the address listed in the homestead application.

Sir Gregory does not have a homestead exemption on the Pierre Avenue property. Does not live there.

Soo…back to the question. Does anyone care?

Tarver has all but said he would vote for the devil before pulling a lever for Perkins.

So, if Tyler wins by one vote, somebody will care if state Senator Tarver is voting illegally in the Shreveport mayor’s race. Does anyone believe that election will be decided by one (1) vote?
