U.S. Sen Mary Landrieu, after her debate with U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy on Monday night, handed out undisclosed flight records to reporters from her first term in office.

The motive to do so? Republicans had requested them.

On the other hand, Landrieu requested Cassidy release records from his much-publicized work for LSU. Cassidy didn't release those papers.
