Poll: Did Jindal violate Louisiana constitution with Rand Paul response?
Written by 

constitution-laLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal lashed out at Rand Paul yesterday for a comment he made on Morning Joe.  

Hours later, some of his opponents returned fire. 

 As reported by The Advocate 

Louisiana Democrats are calling for an investigation into Gov. Bobby Jindal’s use of the Governor’s Office to take aim at Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul’s campaign for president.

In a statement released through the Governor’s Office on Wednesday morning, Jindal said Paul is “unsuited to be Commander-in-Chief” because Paul claimed on national television that Republicans are to blame for a rise in Islamic State militants.

Paul launched his 2016 presidential campaign last month. Jindal last week launched an exploratory committee to weigh his own 2016 run.

State law prohibits the use of public resources to “urge any elector to vote for or against any candidate,” which the state Democratic Party is citing as it alleges the statement from the Governor’s Office amounts to “a flagrant abuse of power and violation of the law.”

Jindal’s office has denied any wrongdoing and defended its use of state staff and government letterhead to slam Paul’s suitability as president.

“Matters of national security are very important to Louisianians, and Louisiana is home to many American soldiers,” Jindal spokesman Mike Reed said in a statement. “The suggestion that the governor of Louisiana cannot or should not comment on matters of national security is without merit.

The first email was from Forgotston, who has fired off a letter to Inspector General Stephen Street demanding an answer to his inquiry as to the legality of Jindal’s “press release” on Tuesday.

So what, exactly, is all the fuss about?

Quite simply, Jindal used the state computer and web page (and presumably a state employee) to gin out a “press release” personally attacking one of Jindal’s probable opponents for the Republican nomination for president under the headline “Gov. Jindal: Senator Paul unsuited to be Commander-in-Chief.”http://www.gov.louisiana.gov/index.cfm?md=newsroom&tmp=detail&articleID=4965

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
