Unlike Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who came to her senses and rejected a bill stating that all candidates on the ballot in Arizona would have to present a birth certificate, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal says he’d sign such a bill. Two Republican lawmakers filed House Bill 561 that isn’t yet slated to land on the governor’s desk.

The bill by state Rep. Alan Seabaugh, R-Shreveport, and Sen. A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell, would require federal candidates who want to appear on Louisiana ballots to file an affidavit attesting to their citizenship, which would have to be accompanied by an “original or certified copy” of their birth certificate.

The requirement also would apply to candidates for U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives.

Brewer ought to send a note of thanks to Jindal for enabling her to look like the sane one.
