Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal who ran on a platform of ethics reform hassome ethics problems…
BATON ROUGE — Gov. Bobby Jindal is facing charges of violating
ethics laws for failure to properly disclose more than $100,000 in
Republican Party assistance to his gubernatorial campaign.
The Louisiana Board of Ethics has ordered a public hearing to
determine whether Jindal and his campaign committee violated the
state’s campaign finance disclosure laws.
Sellers, Jindal’s spokeswoman, confirmed the charges and said the
campaign plans to pay a $2,500 fine. She said the campaign has already
amended the disclosure report in question to reflect the $118,000 in
Republican Party expenditures on Jindal’s behalf.
“It’s been amended and the fine will be paid,” Sellers said.
