Gov. Bobby Jindal denounced the historic lawsuit against oil and gas companies filed Wednesday by a local levee board, saying the board overstepped its authority and calling the suit the work of trial lawyers looking for a “windfall” by blaming the industry for coastal erosion.
Jindal, who appoints the members of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East, said in a statement that he is demanding that the agency kill the lawsuit by canceling a contract with trial lawyers handling the case, because the suit oversteps the board’s authority, he believes.
“Governor Jindal emphasized that he is not going to let a single levee board – taken over by a group of trial lawyers – determine flood protection, coastal restoration and economic repercussions for the state,” said the statement from the governor.
Trial lawyers? You mean John Edwards has something to do with this? Holy shit. Despite having attended an Ivy League university, Jindal is incapable of complex thought and speaks only in gibberish, cliches, and word salad. He knows one thing for sure: he loves the oil companies except BP during the spill. PBJ is big on cliches, not consistency.
This is getting *really* interesting. Stay tuned.
