Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne sent a cease-and-desist order to MoveOn on Thursday, asking the advocacy organization to take down a billboard along Interstate 10 that parodies Louisiana's "Pick your Passion" tourism slogan. The billboard, which mentions Jindal by name, is critical of the governor and legislators' decision not to expand the state Medicaid program under federal health care reform.
"LOU!SIANA Pick your passion! But hope you don't love your health. Gov. Jindal's denying Medicaid to 242,000 people," the sign reads.
