ouisiana First Lady Supriya Jindal took umbrage at criticisms U.S. Sen. David Vitter made Saturday about the State Police protection for the Jindal children.
U.S. Sen. David Vitter told state troopers that the security detail seemed inflated after seeing the protection provided for the Jindal children, according to tweets Saturday from a gubernatorial candidate forum sponsored by the Louisiana State Troopers Association, which held its 43rd annual convention in Baton Rouge and attracted about 200 troopers.
Mrs. Jindal tweeted in response that Vitter “is free to criticize my husband’s ideas and policy decisions all he wants, but he needs to stay away from our children.”
Though the state’s two highest elected Republicans, Gov. Jindal and Sen. Vitter famously have cool personal relationship.
