Early release of D-G endorsement

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 7:02 AM

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette apparently favors candidates it supports with early viewing of endorsement editorials. Or it did for Charlie Wood, candidate for re-election to the Pulaski County School Board. He posted it on his Facebook page. It was later removed, but not before someone grabbed a screenshot. You need not plow through all the words. Charlie hates the union. He gets the nod. Here's his opponent, Gloria Lawrence, a long-time teacher. She doesn't sound like the devil. Charlie, give back that iPad.

Board member Danny Gilliland, another union hater, presumably has a similar tribute coming.

UPDATE FROM BIZARRO WORLD: It develops that the editorial Wood posted was written by himself and suggested to the D-G as its editorial endorsement, which has not been forthcoming. Strange fellow.

  • Another made-up Republican attack: The Saline County socialists are coming to take your business

    The latest in bogus Republican political attacks comes from Saline County, where Steve Lux, chairman of the county Republican Committee, has sent a letter warning members of the Benton-Bryant Chamber of Commerce that a progressive group working to elect Democrats in the county is allied with a socialist group that wants nothing less than "the elimination of private business." This is, of course, nonsense.
