Jindal Fires State Employee Day After She Criticized Him, Blames It on Katrina
By GottaLaff

Ruh-roh! Ba-Ba-Ba-Bobby did someone wrong:

A state worker fired the day after publicly criticizing state government last week was actually told she was terminated because of problems pertaining to Hurricane Katrina four years ago, her attorney said.

Melody Teague, a state Department of Social Services contract grants reviewer, was informed she was fired because of problems with the disaster food stamps program that she was drawn into during the Katrina aftermath, her attorney, Mark Falcon said.

Teague will go through the Civil Service appeals process to undo her firing, Falcon said.

He called it a secondary matter that she was fired one day after criticizing state privatization efforts and Gov. Bobby Jindal during an Oct. 1 state Commission for Streamlining Government forum in Jefferson Parish.
