Teepell said he told Toups that the Jindal administration was “interested in his resigning.
Last week, two stories broke that questioned the ethics of the Bobby Jindal administration.
The first dealt with the ethical propiety of a foundation run by Mrs. Supriya JIndal which took in donations from corporations that also contributed to her husband's campaign funds. The chief fundraiser for the campaign also worked for the foundation. Also, some of the corporations involved received favorable decisions by the Administration.
Are we embarking upon a new paradigm with the reaction to the “Jasmine Revolution”?
Traditionally, national boundaries have been inviolable. What happened within a nation was that country’s business and no other country or group of countries had the right to intervene.
CONVENT, La. -- Today, Gov. Bobby Jindal and Nucor Corp. (NYSE: NUE) Chairman, President and CEO Dan DiMicco joined Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Stephen Moret and St. James Parish President Dale Hymel to break ground on the first phase of Nucor's new multiphase iron and steel manufacturing facility in St. James Parish.
The facility will be one of the largest industrial projects in Louisiana history, and could result in more than 1,250 new direct jobs, averaging approximately $75,000 per year, plus benefits, and $3.4 billion in capital investment.
School is out as to what political damage, if any, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is facing after the organization CREW and the New York Times outed the first-term governor in a investigation in which Jindal and his wife, Supriya, are being portrayed as walking a fine line on ethics.
Jindal had promised Louisiana that he would raise the gold standard and depending upon whom you talk with, that pledge has met mixed reviews.
New Orleans, Louisiana--It's Sunday March 6 and Mardi Gras is now upon the city as Bacchus and Endymion parade after a day of rain. Here are events for New Orleans by Frank Stansbury and LaFete News.
Governor Bobby Jindal is visiting Rayne Louisiana--a town hit hard by a tornado that injured eleven, demolished homes and which took the life of Jalisa Granger who sacrificed her life when she protected her child from a tree crashing into her home.
The Saints beefed up their defensive line by signing free agent Shaun Rogers, 6-foot-4, 350 pounds, last week to a one-year contract for $4 million.
"Big Baby" Rogers has never played on a winning team in his nine-year career (Detroit and Cleveland) although he has appeared in three Pro Bowls and was a second-team All-Pro in 2004.
While rain and bad weather has put a damp on Mardi Gras in New Orleans, there is still plenty to do in the environs for everyone. Tomorrow will be a super-duper parade event with Bacchus and Endymionwith clearer skies on the horizon. More New Orleans events from LaFete News by Frank Stansbury:
The evolution of post-secondary education in Louisiana emulates neither efficiency nor logic. After World War II, other states began to create community college systems to provide technical training and to serve as feeder systems for universities. Louisiana embarked upon a far more chaotic approach. The Bayou State began to spawn “junior” colleges (which had no true technical training mission) and a plethora of four-year universities. The goal was not to have a limited number of high quality research and instructional institutions but to have “higher” education on almost every street corner.
