Supreme Court candidate airs response to out-of-state stealth group's attack ad

Posted By on Fri, May 9, 2014 at 6:21 AM


Tim Cullen, who's opposing Robin Wynne in a race for Arkansas Supreme Court, hurried up production of a response ad last night to the emergence today of a huge attack ad buy against him by a shadowy out-of-state group with a history of intervening in court races around the country without disclosing its financial backing. Cullen has also done a print response slamming the clandestine ad buy, estimated by Cullen's camp at $200,000, and castigating Wynne for not disavowing the attack.  Wynne's campaign said he did not know about the ads.

The Law Enforcement Alliance of America refused yesterday to produce a named person to talk about the ad. It accuses Cullen of viewing child pornography as a victimless crime based on the work he did as a court-appointed attorney eight years ago attempting to reduce an enhanced sentence given a Wyoming man who possessed child porn and arranged to meet someone he thought was a 13-year-old in Little Rock but was actually an adult law officer.

ALSO: Think Progress has been on the trail of the puppetmasters at LEAA for some time. In Texas, the thinking is that they front corporate cash. And a court case may force that information out.
