BATON ROUGE (AP) — Two Calcasieu Parish teachers who led failed recall efforts against Gov. Bobby Jindal and House Speaker Chuck Kleckley have been fined $500 each for failing to file campaign finance reports on time.
Angie Bonvillian and Brenda Romero missed a deadline to file a report 45 days after the recall drives began. The reports were filed 56 days late with the state's ethics administration office. They faced fines of up to $1,000 each.
The Board of Ethics cut the penalties in half Friday, as long as the public school teachers remain in compliance with ethics laws.
Bonvillian and Romero said they didn't know of the reporting requirement.
Jason Doré, executive director of the state Republican Party, filed the complaint against the recall organizers when they did not submit documents on time.

Title: Support them for trying - send them a donation
If 50 people give them $10 then this attempt at intimidation by the republican party of Louisiana will fail. It's too bad they had to hold down full time jobs as teachers (which requires at least 60 hours a week of work at school and at home) while trying to run two campaigns. Otherwise, we would have been free of the likes of Kleckley and Jindal. God bless Angie and Brenda and God bless Louisiana.

shoulda, would, coulda, this is ridiculous and just the kind of thing that keeps regular citizens from participating in our own gov't.
