Hendrix Marion Fowler, Sr., known as Mutt Fowler, was a politician and businessman who served from 1953 to 1972 as mayor of the small town of Coushatta in Red River Parish in northwestern Louisiana, as a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1972 to 1986, and later as the executive director of the Sabine River Authority. Fowler's public 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 Democratic political dynasty that also included two Louisiana state elections commissioners, the second of whom was indicted, convicted, and imprisoned for bribery and income tax evasion.
