If you’re a tax-raising child molester who snorts bath salts, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is your worst nightmare. Otherwise, as the social network kids like to say, Jindal is pretty “meh.” (Translation: “not so much”.)

The Lens wants to hear from people who have filed a claim for damages related to BP's oil spill in Gulf of Mexico.
