Vacancies on Louisiana Board

WBRZ reports that the Louisiana Board of Ethics will have more vacancies and discusses the impact of the departures on the agency.

Mass resignations from the Louisiana Board of Ethics will bring to a halt the policing of conflicts of interest, nepotism, campaign finance and other state ethics laws, a legislative floor leader for Gov. Bobby Jindal said Friday.

Meanwhile, the 11-member Ethics Board lost two more panelists Friday. That leaves two members, only one of whom says he is certain to stay on a board stripped by Jindal and the Legislature of its power to decide whether laws have been violated.
