Ethics Commission begins investigation into Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and Treasurer Dennis Milligan

Posted By on Thu, Feb 18, 2016 at 1:24 PM

Little Rock attorney Matt Campbell, blogger at the Blue Hog Report, says that the Arkansas Ethics Commission has begun an investigation into whether Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and Treasurer Dennis Milligan violated state law by campaigning in Iowa for Mike Huckabee's doomed bid for president, the AP reports

Campbell received a certified letter from the commission today. 

Campbell's complaint states that Rutledge and Milligan improperly engaged in campaign activities during normal business hours; Rutledge and Milligan claim that they were on personal leave and thus did not violate the law.
