Report: State treasurer probed by law officers

Posted By on Mon, Jan 7, 2013 at 8:43 AM

Arkansas Business, citing anonymous sources, says Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner has been under investigation for more than a year by unnamed law enforcement agencies. (In addition to state legislative review and media examinations of her record.)

Obvious areas of interest are: 1) her at-least sloppy handling of campaign finances, largely propelled by people with an interest in doing investment business with her office; 2) the disproportionate amount of business directed to certain securities salesmen (a subject first reported here in fall 2011).
