Pay attention to who's PACing

Posted By on Sun, Aug 21, 2011 at 7:18 AM

State Rep. Greg Leding, the Fayetteville Democrat, has sent an e-mail to friends urging careful inspection of pleas for money to PACs established to elect people to the Arkansas legislature. He wrote:

The House Republican Caucus has formed a fundraising PAC called the House Leadership PAC. Given that Republicans remain the minority party in Arkansas, the name is more than a little misleading, whatever their goals for 2012 might be.

House Republicans have sent fundraising letters using the House Leadership PAC name to Democrats all across the state. While the letters include the names of House Republicans, we've already received reports of Democrats who have nearly made the mistake of contributing to the organization, believing that their contributions will go to benefit House Democrats.

House Leadership PAC is in no way associated with House Democrats.

We want to make sure Arkansas Democrats avoid the mistake of contributing to this organization.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
