From The Lens:
Gov. Bobby Jindal took office in 2008 promising the most transparent administration in Louisiana history, and he quickly began to deliver. He got the state Legislature to approve one measure that requires elected and appointed officials to disclose their personal finances and another that provides greater public disclosure of government contracts.
But over the past year, while taking the initial steps for an apparently relentless presidential campaign, Jindal has become increasingly unavailable to Louisiana reporters, refuses to disclose in advance when he travels out of state and declines to identify who provides the private aircraft he flies on.
