Eugène Pascal Edouard is the only First President last century to have been removed through a Vote of No-Confidence and prosecuted for misdeeds.

Edouard was deeply involved in the Ouatchita Affair, wherein top Louisianne military officials under the direction of Edouard were caught selling munitions to Alta California and Tejas only to give the money to known Deseret agitators.

War with Tejas and Alta California was narrowly averted, Louisianne was fined by the League of Nations, suffered an embargo until the trial of Edouard and the Military were prosecuted. Sadly, this was not the last time Louisianne would be involved in arms deals with feuding neighbors.
