Description

WVUE's investigation, “The Jindal Effect,” exposed the crippling financial impact Gov. Bobby Jindal's failed presidential bid had on the state of Louisiana. This entry focuses on two major areas: Jindal's presidential run and the impact on Louisiana. The first (Jindal's Presidential run) shows how the governor may have broken state law, forced Louisiana taxpayers to fund part of his presidential campaign, and questionably raises millions of dollars for his campaign. The series also looks at the effect on taxpayers. Jindal cut budgets but showered big business with gifts as he tried to pave a road to the White House. The result of this series was an exposé on the ways Bobby Jindal ultimately let Louisiana suffer at the expense of his presidential aspirations. https://youtu.be/0N3HrW5cWf8
