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.

Cong. Graves needs history lesson Thursday, Jun 25 2015 

Garret Graves

Louisiana history not his best subject

On Monday, in an appearance before the Baton Rouge Press Club, Louisiana Congressman Garret Graves said he would like his former boss, Bobby Jindal, to be elected President because we’ve never had a President from Louisiana.  (See tape here.)

We know that Graves lacks a formal education, but one would think having grown up in Louisiana Graves would have learned the 12th President, Zachary Taylor, was elected from Louisiana.  (See listing here.)

Perhaps a supporter of Graves will forward this information to him before he further embarrasses our state in the hallowed halls of Congress.

You can’t make this stuff up.

State Police conspire to violate the law Wednesday, Jun 24 2015

The stench increases

As the Crack Mullet Research Team digs through the rubble of the 2015 Regular Session more skullduggery by the Louisiana State Police (“LSP”) is unearthed.

Special interest group

A pattern has emerged how the LSP lobbyists (State Trooper hierarchy in uniform.) regularly and blatantly violate the state constitution.   The operation is purely Machiavellian.

Rather than introduce tax increases and special retirement benefits straight up, the LSP hijack innocuous bills halfway through the process to do their dirty work.  Just as bad are the LSP’s willing accomplices; the leges who allow their legislation to be hijacked without saying a word.

When it comes to special interests groups, the sheer power of the LSP lobbyists is unrivaled.  It makes one wonder what the LSP have on the leges to buy their silence.

Another tax

During the just ended lege session, another tax increase disguised as a fee increase was added by the LSP lobbyists to an innocuous House Bill in a Senate Committee.

House Bill 448 by Representative Steve Pugh unconstitutionally increased state revenues for the LSP by $22 Million, annually.

Louisiana Constitution Article III, Section 16 requires “[all] bills for raising revenue …shall originate in the House of Representatives.” This revenue raising measure originated in the Senate.

See how your representative voted here and your senator here.   A “YEA” is for the tax increase.  A “NAY” is against the tax increase and  “ABSENT” is counted the same as a “Nay” vote.

It’s more than ironic that the top law enforcement agency in the state regularly conspires to violate the law.

The next time a  lege complains about special interests group controlling the lege process, ask them about the Louisiana State Police.
