Following a boat tour of Pass a Loutre, La., today, Jindal reported seeing thick oil in the sensitive marshlands.
“The heavy oil is here,” Jindal said. “This was the day everybody was worried about, everybody was concerned about. That day is here, that heavy oil is in the marshes.”
“This was not the weathered, the emulsified oil,” Jindal said. “It wasn’t tar balls. This wasn’t sheen. … This is oil that is going to be very, very difficult for them to clean up.”
