Ashley Morris: the blog
If you run for another office while currently holding office, and your win requires a special election, then you have to foot the bill for that election out of either your election coffers or your own pocket.
This could apply to Windy-Lewis and Jindal. Of course, now that Jindal has won (and has proven, yet again, that Jeff Sadow is full of merde), somebody has to run for that seat. I've heard Steve Scalise will run. Of course, Scalise (a Republican endorsed by this blog) won his state senate race. So there's another special election waiting to happen.
All these elections, all this vanity, all paid for by the citizens of the gret stet.
