Report: Louisiana attorney general sues governor

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry sued Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards over a $4 million transfer allegedly owed to the attorney general’s office, The Associated Press reports. The lawsuit accuses Edwards, a Democrat, of refusing to transfer the money to an account belonging to the office of Landry, a Republican.

Landry said Edwards didn’t move the money because of political reasons, according to the report.
