UPDATE: This is a correction of a previous version that reported the order was granted.
LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory has asked a judge to bar candidate Monique Blanco Boulet from accusing him of being corrupt.
Guillory’s legal team filed the petition for the order on Tuesday.
Guillory has requested that a judge prohibit Boulet “from distributing or transmitting any oral, visual, digital, or written material accusing Joshua S. Guillory of corruption pending a hearing on the request for a preliminary injunction.”
The Boulet campaign released a statement regarding her comments on Guillory.
“Josh Guillory cannot defend his record of failure and corruption, so he is trying to silence others from talking about it. I will not back down from speaking the truth, standing up to this bully, and fighting to bring honesty and transparency to Lafayette Parish,” Boulet said.
More information regarding her comments can be found on the Boulet campaign website.
