Hundreds turn out for Edward's event

Posted: Updated:

Monroe, La. (KNOE 8 News) -Tonight, the state got to poke fun at one of the Louisiana's most colorful and controversial former governors, Edwin Edwards. A group of politicians took the stage at the Monroe Civic Center for the roasting of Edwin Edwards.

Proceeds of the event go to the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum. Most of the jokes focused on Edward's trial, incarceration and his love for all women.

At last count the museum had sold around 600 tickets, but they were still selling them at the door tonight. They are very happy with the turn out and so was Edwards.
