Rapert Resign billboard gets the expected reaction

A money drive on change.org apparently raised sufficient cash ($750 was the goal) to erect a Rapert Resign billboard in the senatorial district of the bully of Bigelow, Republican Sen. Jason Rapert.

The sponsor, arrevolution.org, describes itself as an independent expenditure committee raising money to get active in races for Arkansas legislature — a "national embarrassment" thanks to the recent session, the website says.

I was happy to see the activism when noted earlier this week. And, as with most things Rapert, howls from the senator increased attention to the project.


He got some blowback, including a Bible quote for the evangelist, Rev. 22:18, which says.

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.
I gather from the poster of the verse that the writer finds Rapert, raising money for his campaign while others in his region suffer from storm damage, to blame for much misfortune.

To be continued, I'm sure.
