Jindal's Promise and The Truth

When he was running for governor, Bobby Jindal proposed in a campaign mailer in a section titled "Make the Legislature accountable to the citizens they represent" that he would 'prohibit the legislature from giving themselves raises that take effect before the subsequent election."
The only way a governor can 'prohibit' anything the legislature does is by the veto.
The legislature voted to more than double their pay - and it takes effect next month.

JINDAL BREAKS HIS PROMISE TO THE PEOPLE



Once more, thanks to We Saw That for the video.

The Times-Picayune covered this today. Not exactly a scoop, since "We Saw That" and you had it first.

Jim, my email address is on my blog home page. Send me an email, if you wouldn't mind my having your address. Sometimes I'd like to send you Jindal stuff. You keep up better than I do, but I don't always have time to post what I have.
