Was trying to decide whether the picture above — of Mike Ross receiving an honorary degree from the Future Farmers of America — looks more like a David Lynch movie or an Alexander Payne movie. Anyways, the line is open. Was planning to do a podcast with Leslie but she went home sick, so sorry loyal listeners, we'll be back next week!

A few odds and ends...

SHOFFNER'S COURT DATE: Martha Shoffner will be due in court before US Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe for her initial appearance and arraignment on June 27 at 10 a.m.

LINDA TYLER CAR CRASH: The former legislator is recovering at Conway Regional Medical Center after an accident Wednesday. She drove off the road and hit a mailbox. Tyler lost a state Senate race to Jason Rapert last fall.

CORN DOG: Josh Marshal flags one of the funniest political ads I've ever seen, from a 2012 House race in South Dakota. It gets better and better, watch the whole thing.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS:
I was saddened to learn that the Arkansas Republican Party doesn't like Wiz Khalifa. The party made the divisive announcement today on their Facebook page. For some reason, the post was then removed almost immediately.

  • Robin Raveendran and Person 9 in the Cranford/Preferred Family Healthcare web

    The federal criminal information released as part of former lobbyist Rusty Cranford's June 7 guilty plea on bribery charges describes a Person 9 who worked for the nonprofit healthcare provider Preferred Family Healthcare and was associated with Cranford. The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
