Fringe politics imperil water supply

OELKE: Gone to meddling in Central Arkansas.
  • OELKE: Gone to meddling in Central Arkansas.
John Brummett declines to use the word crazy to describe the unhinged efforts by Koch Brothers shill Teresa Oelke of Americans for Prosperity and hors categorie wingnut Jeannie Burlsworth of Secure Arkansas.

But exalting a private property owner's "right" to pollute the drainage basin of Central Arkansas's water supply sounds like a pretty good definition of crazy to me.

Oelke (yes, she's the hypocritical critic of Obama stimulus spending whose Rogers family profits from doing construction on Obama stimulus projects) might do well to take a look in her backyard at Beaver Lake for what can happen when you don't control watershed use.

By the way, Gerard Matthews wandered among the political fringe for us in a cover story a while back.
