The chairman of the Louisiana Board of Ethics renewed a call Monday for revising recent laws that created a "crippled" system for deciding ethics cases and said efforts to seek an independent review have stalled. Frank Simoneaux took over as chairman last year after nearly every member of the previous board resigned, some in protest of a 2008 law pushed by Gov. Bobby Jindal that supplanted the board with a panel of state administrative law judges to adjudicate ethics complaints. 'It's all convoluted and absolutely turned upside down.' Board of Ethics Chairman Frank Simoneaux says of revised rules.The new board has mixed views of the new system, but Simoneaux has led the critique and succeeded in getting the board to vote 8-2 to approve a report outlining his case.
