WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today after New Iberia resident Matthew Delcambre helped prevent the theft of the Magna Carta from England’s Salisbury Cathedral:
“The Magna Carta is one of the most important pieces of paper in history.  The Founding Fathers used it as a reference when writing the U.S. Constitution,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “Mr. Delcambre didn’t look the other way or take a selfie when some knucklehead tried to hammer through the glass display case protecting the Magna Carta.  He helped apprehend the perpetrator.  He’s done history a great service.  New Iberia and the rest of Louisiana should be proud.”
