BATON ROUGE -- An effort started six months ago to recall Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal has fizzled, but the Opelousas man behind the petition will continue trying to oust the governor by running against him this fall.
Ron Ceasar would have needed to gather more than 908,000 verified signatures by early next week to get a recall election against Jindal. Fewer than five dozen have been registered with the Louisiana secretary of state's office.
"We would need all of them by the deadline set. We have only 55 at present, and the deadline is July 5th," Sailor Jackson, a spokesman for Secretary of State Tom Schedler, said Friday.
No one has ever successfully gathered enough signatures to get a recall election scheduled against a statewide or parishwide official in Louisiana.
A full-time Ph.D. student at Southern University, Ceasar said he and his supporters brought in more signatures than what is on file with the secretary of state's office, but he acknowledged the recall election won't happen.

First thing he needs to do is to change his name, from Ron Ceasar to Ron Caesar.
Sounds like he went looking for his signatures among the PDS crowd. Really effective and powerful, that bunch.... /sarc
I’m sure he will get right on using his Ph.D. to figure out a way to blame this on the “bitter clingers.”
“a professional student leach/bum.”
I was wondering how it was possible for him to find more than 55 winos to make their mark on a petition. Too lazy to cheat, eh?
the Opelousas man behind the petition will continue trying to oust the governor by running against him this fallfrom the "Gift That Keeps On Giving" desk.
The “I didn’t get my way so I want a do over” crowd faces a pretty high hurdle here in Michigan as well. I don’t doubt they’ll get plenty of signatures to recall Rick Snyder but they’ve still got to get them past our new secretary of state who made a name for herself by fighting ACORN and fake tea party fraud.
In other words, they have to get real verifiable signatures.
55 of 908,000
Now THAT’S funny.
Sounds like a real go-getter, 58 and not ready to leave the nest yet.
As far as he knew EVERYONE wanted Jindal out. This shows how out of touch with people outside academia he is.
no union muscle in LA like there is in wisconsin.
55 signatures? You’d think they’d find more than that just from liberal staff at LSU!
His future is ... behind him. Unless he’s already had a career and taken early retirement, I wonder what his retirement plans look like? Sponging off the government, I’m guessing.
As usual the worms are coming out.
How much more of a loser can there be than a 58-year old full-time PhD student?
And then his name recognition will shoot up to about 500 or so. From obscurity, to obscurity, with no stops in between...
Why is this even a news story?
Because it’s funny. Bet Rush will even spend some time on it.
It’s always a good thing to mock the Leftists.
Do you perchance have a link to the story behind that pic? I’m fascinated..
