Re: “Candidate urges no-gifts policy for treasurer's office

Dont be shocked that the public roll's their eyes at Dennis Krispy Kreme Milligan waving the ethics banner. There isnt a more sleezy character running for office this year than Milligan.

Re: “Late-night Capitol visit becomes issue in Republican primary race

Dennis Milligan is an absolute fool. For starters state treasurer shouldn't even be an elected position, unfortunately it is. But if anyone were qualified for the job it would be Baird, the fact that he is a term limited legislator is irrelevant. Milligan is nothing but a party hack that wants to be state treasurer to advance his political agenda. What does the private option and voting for the house speaker have anything to do with the responsibilities of the state treasurer?? Nothing. Milligan is just trying to make what should be a non partisan position, partisan. If Milligan gets the nomination ill be voting for the democrat, he is the Republican version of Martha Shoffner, an unqualified partisan hack. Congrats Dennis you just motivated me to donate a significant sum of money to Duncan Baird.

Re: “2nd District congressional rumbling: Pat Hays?

I hate to comment Paul but it absolutely drives me crazy to hear people imply that the Bush tax cuts brought about the financial collapse of 2008. There is ZERO correlation between the two and if you buy the talking point that there is then you are truly a fool. Now if you want to argue that lack of regulation of Wall Street caused the 2008 collapse then Ill agree with you all day. But arguing that the tax cuts of the early 2000s caused a subprime mortgage crisis is just idiotic, and nothing but a good line spouted by politicians to garner votes.

Re: “Democratic Party presses Tim Griffin on pipeline issues

Well since Max refuses to answer the question and is too busy protecting Pryor I took the liberty of searching Pryor's donations on the FEC website myself and low and behold what is that I find? Pryor received a total of $5000 in two donations from Exxon Mobil's PAC on Feb 14th, and March 5th respectively. Now in case you were wondering Griffin, who Max implies is in Exxon’s pocket because he received a donation from them, has only received $2500 in a donation from Exxon's PAC. So quite clearly if we are to go by Brantley's impeccable reporting, Mark Pryor is doubly corrupt as Griffin.

Griffin and Pryor both represent Mayflower do they not? Heck throw Boozman in there I have no doubt he received Exxon money as well. Why aren’t you going after all of these guys for accepting Exxon money Max? Your position reeks of hypocrisy and reflects nothing but a personal vendetta not real reporting. Going after Griffin for doing the same exact thing his Democratic counterparts have done, and not attacking them on the same issue, just makes you look like a partisan hack.

Re: “Democratic Party presses Tim Griffin on pipeline issues

Max can I ask again did Mark Pryor get any Exxon campaign money? Youve refused to answer the question before so Im either assuming he hasnt, or youre just too biased to care to look. In that case would you mind providing the link to look up campaign donations.

Re: “The Arkansas Times introduces digital membership

Well I am saddened to hear this. Regardless of the political views pushed by the Times, I have found this blog to be my one source of breaking news in the Central Arkansas area. Living in Hillcrest this blog also is a fantastic source for resturant reviews and crime reports in the area. Sadly the $10 a month will most likely push me away. Maybe my mind will change after a few weeks without immediate Little Rock news coverage while I sit at work, but $120 a year seems a tad steep for that benefit.

Re: “Tom Cotton's cash — Bush, Stephens, Club for Growth kick in

Care to delve into where Pryor's money comes from as well? As I've stated on this blog many times I am no fan of Cotton's politics, sucking up to the CFG types of the Republican party, but let’s not pretend all of Pryor's cash comes from little old ladies just trying to protect their social security check. I have no doubt that there are numerous of those evil 1%ers on his donation list, dare I say probably some Exxon/big oil money that you like to call Tim Griffin out for constantly .
