Halter beats ethics rap

Posted By on Fri, Oct 16, 2009 at 3:55 PM

No foul, says Ethics Commission, on lt. gov.'s newsletter. The vote was 4-1 to dismiss the complaint filed by a Maumelle man, with Catherine Johnson of Little Rock voting no.

Halter mailed an informational newsletter last summer. It naturally presented Halter in a very positive light. But for it to be campaign purposes, the commission decided, it needed to be overtly for campaign purposes, according to a letter it adopted in the vote. No campaign was underway at the time, it's worth noting.
