Keet defends years in Florida

Posted By on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 6:51 AM

Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Keet says it's "silly" to focus on the five years-plus he spent in Florida. I'm sympathetic, though I think Gov. Mike Beebe has some solid ground to bring the issue up when Keet begins commenting on political issues (lottery for example) that occurred when he was in Florida.

I want to make one thing clear:

I stand absolutely by my statement in a column about my own interview with Keet on residency issues that he said he moved back to Arkansas in early 2009 after voting in Florida in November 2008. He has apparently issued a statement somewhere saying he moved back to Arkansas in August 2008. That's not what he told me. PS — And if he stands by that August moving date, it raises questions about the legality of his vote in Florida in November.
