Republican Party chairman files ethics complaint about something against Nate Steel

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 at 4:42 PM

Usually when someone files an ethics complaint against a political opponent, they release the complaint and clearly explain in a press release the bad stuff they're complaining about. Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb takes a different approach with this press release on his complaint against Rep. Nate Steel, the Democratic nominee for attorney general: 

Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Doyle Webb today filed a complaint with the Arkansas Ethics Commission against Democrat Candidate for Attorney General Nate Steel for violating Arkansas Criminal laws and Ethics Rules for his own personal gain. In Mr. Steel’s capacity as Nashville City’s Attorney he advised, directed, encouraged and participated in this clear violation by the use for campaign purposes personal property provided with public funds as prohibited by ACA 7-1-103(a)(3)(A) and AR Ethics Rule Section 245(e).

"Democrat Nate Steel seeks to be Attorney General, the chief law enforcement officer in the state of Arkansas, while advising public servants to break the law for his own personal gain,” said Chairman Webb. “Such actions should give pause to the average voter on whether they wish to support Mr. Steel and his motives for statewide elected office.” 

Okay then! Either the RPA needs a better p.r. department or this is thin gruel. I'm reading between the lines here, but seems like maybe this is a reference to police uniforms and a police car in this Nate Steel ad below. I've got a line in to Webb to clarify.

    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.

    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.
