Gov. Jindal secretly tells Republican legislators: I regret vetoing your pay raise

April 28, 2009

In his speech yesterday to open the 2009 Louisiana legislative session, Gov. Bobby Jindal said he’d made some “past mistakes.” But while Jindal did not elaborate on those mistakes in his speech, he did privately tell his Republican colleagues one of his mistakes: vetoing their pay raises.

From today’s Town-Talk:

Some lawmakers acknowledged that the governor recently told a meeting of the Republican legislative delegation that he regretted vetoing the [pay] raise.

Jindal’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. After flip-flopping on the issue, he told Louisiana citizens he was opposed to the pay raise — but in a closed-door meeting with Republican colleagues, he told them he regrets his veto. Our governor sure has a twisted definition of transparency.
