Papers Filed for Jindal Recall

According to LaNewsLink, papers were filed with the Secretary of State to recall the governor.

According to the office of the Secretary of State, the papers were filed by Ryan Fournier of Jefferson Parish.
A recall requires signatures from 1/3 of registered voters.
The governor issued a statement saying ""The voters of our state are angry that the legislature more than doubled their own pay and I agree with them. It was excessive and they should reverse it. I'm sure more voters will take extraordinary steps to show their anger over the pay raise before this is all said and done - that's how a democracy works."
