Death Star to seek more conciliatory approach?

Posted By on Sun, Jan 4, 2009 at 10:32 AM

Andrew DeMillo says Bob "Death Star" Johnson is looking at ways to soften his image and strengthen his legacy as the new session approaches.  Top priorities for the senator will include working out the details for the lottery and helping Central Arkansas Water buy land in the Maumelle watershed to protect it from development.  Johnson actually did the opposite in 2005, when he sought to allow construction of large homes in the area.   

Johnson also talks about leaving "The Brotherhood" at the door when it's time to get to work. 

"This stuff about the brotherhood and otherhood has its place in the media culture but when I put my game face on and get ready for the session, I leave it at the door," Johnson said.
