Hester returns $1,000 to McDaniel PAC

Posted By on Wed, Jul 25, 2012 at 9:14 AM

Bart Hester, the Koch-interests-financed winner of a Republican Senate seat in Northwest Arkansas, has returned a $1,000 contribution from Attorney General Dustin McDaniel's PAC. Not surprising. He's not likely to return any favors to McDaniel, now or in the future, given that he is a tool of the Koch's Teresa Oelke and their Americans for Prosperity lobby.

The better question is Why The F McDaniel contributed to a teabagger. I've sent a question in that direction.

UPDATE: McDaniel responds:

Hyper-partisanship is not working in Washington, and it is not going to work in Arkansas. My decision to help an unopposed GOP nominee for the Arkansas Senate retire his campaign debt was made with this view in mind.

The only other GOP candidate I can recall contributing to is Rep. Carter. Again, he was without Democratic opposition.

I have received Sen-Elect Hester's refund check.

The McDaniel Leadership PAC has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Arkansas Democrats, including giving and planning donations to every Democratic House and Senate candidate on the ballot this fall.

My response. Giving money to a hyper-partisan to cure hyper-partisanship is delusional.
