Kennedy: Jindal should pay for own security; state troopers could work in New Orleans
Gov. Bobby Jindal should pay for his own security details while campaigning for president outside of Louisiana, and the state troopers that guard him could instead be used to fight crime in New Orleans, state Treasurer John Kennedy suggested this afternoon.
Kennedy, a frequent critic of the Jindal administration, noted that the governor has more than $9 million in his campaign coffers that could be used to pay for the details instead of using state troopers.
For comparison, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, another Republican contender for president, has part of his security tab picked up by one of his political action committees.
