For the past couple of weeks, The Lens’ Tyler Bridges has been tracking down accounts of Mayor Mitch Landrieu engaging in political retribution. About a dozen people described how they had lost city business, been pushed off a board or committee, or were simply dressed down after voicing disagreement with the mayor’s policies.

Friday at 1:30 p.m., Lens readers can share their reactions to the story and talk to Bridges about his reporting. You can share your thoughts and follow the discussion in the chat window below. I’ll moderate and post the comments.

If you’d like to participate via Twitter, use the #HardballMitch hashtag.
