U.S. Governor
    (December 15, 1942-August 18, 2019)
    Born in New Iberia, Louisiana
    Representative of Louisiana's State Legislature (1984-1988)
    Louisiana's Public Service commissioner (1988-1996)
    Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana (1996-2004)
    Governor of Louisiana (2004-2008)
    During her first year in office, her primary concern was the future of the New Orleans Saints.
    She said before Hurricane Katrina struck, 'I believe we are prepared. That's the one thing that I've always been able to brag about.'
    Later that day, she requested additional funding for Katrina relief, stating 'I have determined that this incident is of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments, and that supplementary Federal assistance is necessary to save lives, protect property, public health, and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a disaster.'
    She sent out her local National Guard troops to deal with looters after Katrina struck instead of helping with recovery.
    In 2006, she signed a bill into law that would outlaw most abortions, even though she is a Democrat.
    She repeatedly accused the government of giving more assistance to Mississippi because its governor was a Republican.
    She was a high school Business teacher before entering politics.
    She endured a lot of criticism during the Katrina aftermath, much of it stemming from false rumors.
    She had to lead Louisiana during the worst natural disaster it ever faced.
    She was the first woman to hold the office of Governor in Louisiana.
    As Governor, she was a member of the National Governors Association, Southern Governors' Association, and the Democratic Governors Association.
