Strange Timing

Governor Bobby Jindal has come under scrutiny lately due to the firing of Melody Teague of the Department of Social Services after she publicly criticized state government. The administration says it was because she mishandled the disaster food stamp program during Hurricane Katrina. Now, we don't have a stake in this....don't know Teague or Jindal, but simply find it ironic that she was fired for mistakes she may have made four years ago, during the biggest natural disaster our country has ever seen, just one day after she spoke out publicly against Jindal. Now state lawmakers are questioning the firing as well. The Advocate has the original story here and the Huffington Post sees a pattern of firings and has their take here.
