Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) is getting on the anti-ACORN bandwagon established by Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), who is of course a potential presidential candidate. This is to say, Jindal is ending the non-existent state funding of the controversial group.
From the Times-Picayune:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued an executive order to keep any state money from going to the controversy-wracked Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has its national headquarters in New Orleans.
According to the state’s Division of Administration, no state agencies have existing contracts with ACORN.
The Louisiana Republican Party has put out a press release celebrating the event: “Jindal Issues Order Ending Funding of ACORN”
