GOP Sheriff Normand Calls Bobby Jindal A 'Cult Leader' During Speech

A Republican Sheriff in Louisiana doesn't think much of how Bobby Jindal left the state's finances.

A Republican Sheriff in Louisiana doesn't think much of how Bobby Jindal left the state's finances.

(WVUE) -Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand isn't happy about how former Gov.Bobby Jindal left the state's finances.

On Tuesday during a speech during a speech at the Metropolitan Crime Commission's annual awards luncheon, Normand likened Jindal to a cult leader.

"What a mess,” Normand said. “Bobby Jindal was a better cult leader than Jim Jones. We drank the elixir for eight years, we remained in a conscious state, we walked to the edge of the cliff, we jumped off and he watched us. And guess what? Unlike Jim Jones, he did not swallow the poison. What a shame."

Normand, a Republican, accused the former governor of trying to rewrite history on social media as it relates to his handling of the budget.

Apparently Normand, who endorsed Jindal when he first ran for Governor, is furious at both the large state deficit and himself "for supporting that idiot". Ouch.

And, via Raw Story:

“And I have to listen to my Republican counterparts talk about gobbledigook. Blah, blah blah… And I’m so sick and tired of hearing: Obama, Obama, Obama. You know how much intellect it takes to blame something on somebody else? This much!” he said holding his hand up to indicate zero. “Propose a solution. Work together.” He closed by comparing politics to being married and asked how many people in the audience refuse to compromise in their marriages.
