Former Arkansas lottery exec lands gig in New Mexico

Posted By on Fri, Dec 13, 2013 at 7:06 AM

I'm back at work after a long hiatus and a little unsure about everything that's been reported in my absence. This broke in New Mexico news a couple of days ago, but I thought I'd mention that ...

David Barden, one of the Palmetto state posse hired for fat jobs under the founding leadership of Ernie Passailaigue at the Arkansas Lottery, has been hired to be interim leader of the New Mexico lottery. The Albuquerque Journal reports at some length on some of the expense and pay-related controversies that attended Barden in Arkansas before the abrupt departure of Ernie P. and his pals.

Among other explanations, Barden claimed he was always working on the dozens of days he spent in South Carolina and Maine while not taking formal leave from his job in Little Rock.
