In Jindal’s Louisiana, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff is forced to raid the LSU Board Of Supervisors to secure public records regarding the process for choosing the latest LSU president.
But, in the 21st century crony capitalism twist, Jindal’s BOS doesn’t have the records! Why, the private consultant that did all the Board’s work has them:
Two East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s deputies escorted by LSU police served the LSU Board of Supervisors office this afternoon with a subpoena demanding that it turn over all records related to its presidential search. The deputies arrived on campus around 2:45 p.m., but left empty handed. “We had nothing to give them,” says Robert Rasmussen, assistant vice president for system relations. “As far as we know, they [the documents] are in the possession of Bill Funk, the search consultant in Dallas.” 19th Judicial District Court Judge Janice Clark issued the subpoena earlier today.
The Jindal transparency charade continues.
