For No Apparent Reason, LA Gov. Bobby Jindal Releases Birth Certificate

When Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal arrived in the United States, he was a three-month-old fetus. However, he was born here after his parents arrived from India, as proven by his just-released birth certificate. (h/t Political Wire)

They arrived Feb 1, 1971, and a bit over six months later, on June 10, 1971, Piyush Jindal was born at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, a natural-born U.S. citizen, who like every other child born in America, could, constitutionally, grow up to be president.

Louisiana Senator David Vitter has a bill that would limit the definition of birthright citizenship.

“My bill limits birthright citizenship to individuals born in the United States with at least one parent who is a legal citizen, a green card holder or an active member of the U.S. armed forces,” said Vitter in introducing his legislation on the Senate floor last month.

Jindal is sympathetic to the now-discredited birthers, saying he’d sign a bill the Louisiana legislature is considering that would require candidates for federal office to provide a birth certificate to get on the ballot in that state.

“This is what is called in politics a ‘dog whistle,'” The Advocate of Baton Rouge wrote in an editorial. “While there is no reason for the Louisiana Legislature to pass a birther bill, the pledge to sign the bill is a signal to the lunatic fringe that Jindal is sympathetic to them.”

The editorial concluded with the line: “Piyush Amrit Jindal is the last man in America who should give his blessing to a birther bill.”

But we can all rest easier knowing that Jindal’s birth certificate is now public.
