It is against Louisiana law for a governor to campaign for himself during the legislative session.
It is not against the law for a governor to campaign for his party during the legislative session.
Any funds raised for the party during the legislative session can be given to (or spent on) the Governor once the legislative session is over.
Connecting the dots and you will see how the ethics law can be circumvented. But our Governor would never seek to get around the law for his own benefit, would he?
Well, if you have been reading my blog posts for the last few years you would obviously know the answer to that question. And during the recent Republican convention in New Orleans, Bobby Jindal did just that. He campaigned for the Louisiana Republican Party during the legislative session. But not only was he there, his campaign finance director was also there.
Afterward, she was involved in an incident where she broke her leg.
Now, details about the altercation are not known at this moment so we do not know who is at fault or why the altercation happened. I also do not wish harm on people I disagree with politically. However, perhaps if Jindal and those helping him would seek to stick to the spirit of the law and not seek to take advantage of every single loophole imaginable, karma would not be seeking to bite them in the ass.
