Jindal circumvented the law Monday, Jun 29 2015
The real Bobby Jindal
What if Bobby Jindal held a presidential fundraiser in Baton Rouge and nobody came? That would surely be big news, wouldn’t it? Well yes and no.
Well, Bobby did and they didn’t come, but nonetheless he raised a half a million dollars.
One has to read between the lines in Elizabeth Crisp’s story in the Baton Rouge paper to fully understand the Jindal fundraising scheme. Story here.
How and why?
It is illegal to hold a political fundraiser on public property, much less at the public housing in which Bobby and his family lives. A little hurdle like the law never stopped Bobby from doing anything.
On Saturday Bobby Jindal invited big money folks to a $2,700 per head presidential fundraiser at a downtown hotel. Simultaneously, Jindal held a “free” reception at the Governor’s Mansion for a few friends.
Coincidentally, it seems everyone who bought a ticket to the fundraiser was invited to the “free” reception at the Mansion.
Some of the money folks, who apparently didn’t read their invitations closely, turned-up at the hotel for the fundraiser. They were quickly advised to go to the nearby Governor’s Mansion where they would find Bobby holding court with his “friends.” They were offered “go boxes” for some of the food that was there at the empty hotel reception room.
Now, you know how Bobby circumvented the Heh, Heh, Heh, Ethics Laws. This scheme by Jindal was so transparent that Little Stevie Wonder could see through it.
By the power vested in me as a Louisiana taxpayer, I hereby introduce to America to the “Louisiana Way” as practiced by Bobby Jindal.
