Who is H. M. Fowler?
Hendrix Marion "Mutt" Fowler, Sr., is a retired Louisiana politician and businessman who served as mayor of his small town of Coushatta in Red River Parish, as a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives, and later as the executive director of the Sabine River Authority. Fowler's career ended in indictment and a plea bargain for the circumvention of state bid laws and dissatisfaction over his having allocated scarce public monies on low-priority projects. He eventually served forty-five days in the Sabine Parish jail. Fowler was the third member of a family political dynasty that also included two Louisiana elections commissioners, the second of whom was indicted, convicted, and imprisoned for bribery and income tax evasion.
