"This should help the Governor brush up on his history for the next time he invokes the civil rights movement.” Justice spokesman Kevin Lewis told TPM.

Jindal, a Republican, said Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, "We've got Eric Holder and the Department of Justice trying to stand in the schoolhouse door to prevent minority kids, low-income kids, kids who haven’t had access to a great education, the chance to go to better schools."

Update: Jindal doubled down on his remarks in response to the DOJ.
