Detractors of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal on Twitter have pounced on the hashtag #AskBobby. Designed by the Jindal social media team as a way for citizens to engage with the presidential candidate, #AskBobby was hilariously misappropriated almost immediately by thousands of people.
Jindal will appear at a town hall-style event in Iowa on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. His presidential campaign’s Super PAC invites potential voters to ask Jindal questions on Twitter, leading up to this evening’s event:
First town hall featuring Bobby Jindal is tonight in Waukee. Send us your questions with #AskBobby! Be sure to include your name and city.
