Jindal getting paid for book deal

BATON ROUGE, LA (KSLA) – Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, has started making money from his recent book deal.

On his 2009 personal financial disclosure report, Jindal reported income of between $50,000 and $99,999 last year from the contract with Regnery Publishing. Jindal's book will be his memoir, titled "On solid ground."

The governor's disclosure information was posted Wednesday May 19th on the Louisiana Board of Ethics website. The reports do not require the reporting of specific income amounts unless the money comes the state, political subdivisions, and/or gambling interests.

A spokesman for Bobby Jindal says the book is on track for a July 12th release, but he wouldn't say how much the governor stands to make on the memoir, or detail of Jindal's publishing contract.
