It some what strange to me just how Gov. Jindal went about picking who he would endorse for the Oct 22 election. When it comes to the LA-06 District Senate race I do have a question or four for the Gov.
- Did you speak to any of the candidates running for a seat besides the candidate you endorsed?
- Are you aware of just how your endorsed candidate stands on the side of Conservatives?
- Why would I, or anyone else, feel as though you are paying back a favor to these endorsed candidates?
- Some of these endorsed candidates are not Conservatives nor even Republicans but are RINOs who have switched from the Democrat Party for no other reason than to get (re)elected and will not work with you. So exactly how do you justify that selection?
A case and point: Congressman Mack ‘Bodi’ White has filled his term limited seat in the House of Representatives and is now seeking an office in the Senate. While Rep. White seems to be a person of good standing a couple of things have been brought to light that makes Rep. White appear to be a typical career politician. He claims to be a Conservative but yet some of the Bills he has written and tried to get passed into law are not Bills a true Conservative would make.
- The Internet Tax (fee) HB 569
Rep. White tried his hardest to get this tax (fee) passed into law but thankfully it was shot down. AG ‘Buddy’ Caldwell and Rep White sat before the Senate Committee on Commerce and tried to pass this tax off as a ‘fee’. Knowing full well there is a Federal law that prohibits any taxing on the internet, still they pushed hard for their ‘fee’ to be applied. A true Conservative would never do a thing like this.

HB 569 internet access tax fee scam shot down by senate committee
HB 569 the bill by rino bodi white to tax internet access in louisiana was deferred by the senate committee on commerce, consumer protection and international affairs.

The Governor had said he would veto any tax bill that came to his desk and yet he endorses Rep White, who with the assistance of the AG, tried to get this tax on the books by calling it a ‘fee’. Both of these men are endorsed by Gov. Jindal. Conservative?? I think not!
So while the Governor endorses RINOs he never speaks to any other candidate.
Mr. Mike Mannino (R) is running against Rep. White (R) for the Senate seat for the LA-06 District. Mr. Mannino said that the Governor has never spoken to him about this race. Mr. Mannino is a true Conservative who believes in smaller government, less/no taxes, Pro-Life, and other conservative ideas and beliefs. A man who will serve the people instead of himself. A person who the Governor might find to be a good ally when a true Conservative is needed. And yet the Governor has never spoken to Mr. Mannino. How amazing!!
Here are the people Gov. Jindal has endorsed for the election of Oct. 22, 2011:
