Another e-mail lesson NIMROD UPDATE

Posted By on Sat, Dec 19, 2009 at 7:38 AM

The state Ethics Commission yesterday properly dismissed a complaint against a public radio newsman at ASU who'd mistakenly sent an e-mail intended for someone else to the campaign of Conrad Reynolds. The e-mail referred to Reynolds as a nimrod.

Of course he wasn't campaigning, so the complaint was outside the bounds of the commission's consideration. And, of course, it's another lesson in the need for care in e-mail communication. But it's worth remembering that even public employees have free speech rights, particularly when it comes to speaking truthfully.

NIMROD UPDATE: Thanks to Stump for noting Jason Tolbert's post on the departure of Conrad Reynolds' campaign manager, Ryan James. James seemed to be reasonably intelligent. More evidence.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
