Mistakenly believing this to be his official portrait, people on Twitter had a lot to say.

Louisiana taxpayers should probably ask for a refund on Bobby Jindal's official portrait (via @CenLamar/@TheInd)

To clarify the confusion, Jindal's chief of staff Kyle Plotkin tweeted the Governor's official portrait and accused the man who posted it on Twitter on Tuesday of "race-baiting."
