It pays to be obedient

The Baton Rouge Advocate and Times Picayune are reporting that Bobby Jindal just canned (my term Jindal claims she resigned) Revenue Department Secretary Cynthia Bridges because of the flap yesterday on the vehicle tax break.

Bridges is a career civil servant to has been Secretary of Revenue under several governors.

Bridges’ is replaced by career politician and former State Representative Jane Smith. Smith knows less than zero about the Revenue Department, but she takes orders well from Team Jindal.

In the Jindal Administration it’s better to be obedient than good.
