If you think somehow the keystone cops are calling the shots with some investors of LSU bonds, you just might be correct.
Despite Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s statements to the national media that life in Louisiana due to his stewardship has never been better, it’s far from.
One might think the Jindal administration and the Office of Group Benefits (OGB) might have learned something from the Bruce Greenstein fiasco over at the Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH).
Greenstein, you will remember, was the DHH secretary when that $280 million contract was awarded by his agency to his former employer, CNSI.
That scenario could be repeated at OGB.
It happened again yesterday, a painful reminder that the GOP leadership in Congress is worthless. The President’s radical nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, was confirmed with ten Republican votes. Without Republican votes, Lynch could not have become Attorney General. Lynch will now replace Eric Holder, the most controversial and racially divisive Attorney General in American history.
More bad news for Louisiana, Governor Jindal, the Louisiana legislature, LSU and Louisiana public universities. Today, Treasurer John Kennedy announced that the $1.6B budget deficit has struck again, hitting LSU with an uppercut at a time that it is already severely bloodied.
