Hawkeye of the Tiger: Jindal (Unofficially) Campaigns in Iowa
Bobby Jindal is taking the weekend off from LSU’s potential exigency and the state’s massive budget shortfall. Da Gov’ says that he has not decided whether a run for the Republican Presidential nomination is in his future. However, he did decide to visit Iowa (again) for a few days.
LSU Says No Exigency Yet
News that Louisiana State University (LSU) would file for financial exigency has caused a stir with many residents. It also caused a stir with LSU who says that the reports are not accurate. A pair of statements from the school this morning (4.24) clarifies that LSU has not begun the “process of filing for financial exigency,” but is continuing to “explore a wide range of contingency plans.”
Bobby Jindal Loves Freedom But Not Gay Marriage or Corporate Bullies
Bobby Jindal seems to enjoy doubling down on extremely controversial positions after the rest of the G.O.P. abandons them. (See the curious case of the “No-Go Zones.”) In a New York Times Op-Ed today (4.24), da Gov’ doubles down on his support for Louisiana’s version of the “religious freedom” legislation that has been rolled back amidst claims of homophobia and threatened boycotts in Indiana and Arkansas.
Take Me Down to the Iowa City
Bobby Jindal is an optimist. He won’t let little issues like a budget gap and legislative session get in the way of a presidential campaign—even an undeclared campaign. Although da Gov’ says that he is still debating a bid at the G.O.P. nomination, he is building infrastructure in Iowa and blasting Hilary Clinton in the news.
Jindal Picks Up Duck Dynasty Endorsement & Equality Condemnation
Bobby Jindal is no stranger to controversy. In fact, some pundits speculate that da Gov’ actively courts it. On Monday (4.13), Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson endorsed Bobby J’s unofficial bid for the POTUS position and Equality Louisiana slammed Jindal’s position on discrimination.
Bold Case: LaBB Sues EPA
A protest is not always enough. Today, the Louisiana Bucket Brigade (LaBB) joined with eight other groups to file suit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The environmental advocates contend that the regulatory agency missed legal deadlines to review pollution risks and implement new safeguards.
Gov' on Love: Jindal Weighs In On "Religious Freedom" Bills
The Louisiana legislature is about to convene their annual session and a massive budget gap is looming. So naturally, Bobby Jindal is taking to the airwaves to promote the possibility of a presidential campaign. Jindal appeared on Meet the Press today to weigh in on “religious freedom” bills as well as his rumored bid for the mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
LA Rep Introduces Marriage Bill Evocative of Indiana
A national uproar about purportedly discriminatory “religious freedom” legislation is no deterrent to Republican state Representative Mike Johnson. On Friday (4.04), Johnson introduced the "Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act,” a local bill that looks suspiciously similar to the controversial laws in Indiana and Arkansas.
J.P. Morrell Kickin' It On Podcast, Social Media
J.P. Morrell wants the kids to know that he is hip to modern ways. Morell is a card carrying member of the tweetosphere. Morrell is known for wearing stylish sneakers on the legislature’s floor. And, now Morrell has a podcast.
