Shreveport mayoral candidate Adrian Perkins talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the growing controversy regarding what he says was the unauthorized use of his name in an endorsement of Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Here's a summary from KEEL news:

Adrian Perkins strongly denies an endorsement of Brett Kavanaugh. Perkins ended up with his name on a letter from the Black Law Students Association of Harvard Law School endorsing the Supreme Court nominee. but Perkins says his name was used without his permission. He also accuses Shreveport City Attorney William Bradford of sending out that letter to local residents. Bradford denies sending the letter by either text or email, but Perkins supplied a screenshot of a text that he (Perkins) received from a friend. The sender's phone number has been removed from the photo, although both Perkins and Bradford say the number on the text is Bradford's. In response, Bradford says that "Honestly, that looks like the link is pasted on a text message with my telephone number typed in."
