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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
