What is it about Republican skulduggery and Krispy Kreme

Posted By on Fri, Dec 20, 2013 at 12:59 PM

You remember, don't you, the clandestine meeting at a Little Rock Krispy Kreme when one Republican candidate seemed to have tried to muscle another Republican candidate out of the state treasurer's race over video of a late-night visit to the state Capitol?

Now we learn a Krispy Kreme in Utah was the rendezvous spot of choice in 2012 when a former Republican attorney general in that state met with a businessman over a federal investigation. Story here says the politico panicked after the meeting and that led him down the road to evidence elimination and fabrication.

Can we agree nothing good comes of political confabs at Krispy Kremes?

    The latest in bogus Republican political attacks comes from Saline County, where Steve Lux, chairman of the county Republican Committee, has sent a letter warning members of the Benton-Bryant Chamber of Commerce that a progressive group working to elect Democrats in the county is allied with a socialist group that wants nothing less than "the elimination of private business." This is, of course, nonsense.
