Gov. Beebe willing to follow on end of death penalty

Posted By on Wed, Jan 16, 2013 at 12:43 PM

Twitter bursts quote Gov. Mike Beebe at Political Animals Club appearance today:

‏@johnlyon09
Gov. Beebe on death penalty: If the Legislature sent me a bill to repeal it, I would sign it.

I know. I know. As if ...

But .... what if the governor demonstrated a pair and offered such a bill as part of his legislative package? I bet he could find a legislator willing to sponsor it. We once had a governor who didn't just talk, he saved the lives of every man on Death Row. Attention new legislative majority: He was a Republican.
