Letter: Party statement irrelevant

The article was about the senator’s son being arrested for various charges, including DWI, hit and run, etc.

The article also went on to report that last year, the senator’s brother, who is the mayor of New Orleans, also had a son that was arrested for a DWI. The article then ends with the sentences that “The mayor and senator are siblings. Both are Democrats.”

What has the fact that “Both are Democrats” have to do with the article? It was an uncalled-for statement and should not have been printed.
