We are currently going through a process of amending campaign and debt reports at which point all non-fundraising expenses will be recategorized as reductions in loans owed to the Lt. Governor.
“Today I self-reported several items to the Arkansas Ethics Commission regarding campaign and debt filings following my 2010 election. While my debt retirement forms are still being amended, I believe making the Commission and the public aware of our current findings is the right thing to do. As this was my first race for public office, the ins and outs of campaign finance reporting were new to both me and my campaign staff. As such, there were some mistakes made, and I am working hard to correct each and every one of them. I am committed to reporting all errors found during this review and will make any necessary corrections. While it’s important to note that I had no malice intent, I should have paid better attention to detail throughout this process. I believe it’s important to own up to mistakes, and I will accept any resulting penalty levied by the Ethics Commission.”
The Lieutenant Governor, or staff traveling with him, on official business throughout the state may need to stay in a hotel room.
Where were Darr's season tickets?I don't yet know what contribution otherwise would have been required for these seats. You can see from the charts that Darr is outside the end zone, but not by much. I trust somebody will call if they think something doesn't fit in the explanation I was given. Maybe former Razorback walk-on Bruce Westerman, the Fountain Lake state representative who's in the Republican primary with Darr for the 4th District congressional seat.
Section 102, Row 20, Seats 13-16
Section 23, Row 4, Seats 15-16
Section 22, Row 18, Seats 9-10
Did he pay the required scholarship amount for those seats?
A donation to the Razorback Foundation was not required for the tickets. Tickets were purchased at full price.
These are seats that are available to all at the price Darr paid without making a contribution to Foundation?
No, thanks for clarifying. Some groups are not subject to the donation requirement. For instance, faculty/staff do not pay the donation for tickets. Traditionally, constitutional officers, legislators and the Higher Education Coordinating Board are not required to pay the donation component if they choose to order tickets at full price.
