KTBS reported tonight that Jerry Juneau has resigned his position as a member of the State Gaming Board.
The resignation is related to a fundraiser that was held for Lynn Austin, candidate for Bossier City Marshal. The Northwest Louisiana Tea Party Alliance published a story on their website about the event, including a copy of an invitation from the Austin campaign.
The fundraiser was held in February at Juneau’s place of business, City Tele-Coin. The invitation from the Austin campaign showed the location of the event to be "City Tele-Coin – Jerry Juneau".
Members of the Gaming Board are forbidden to engage in any political campaign in any way, or even to attempt to influence votes for any candidate.
Juneau told Channel 3 that he did not attend the fundraiser.
