Re: “UCA combines philosophy/pornography

Berry and Ross voted no on the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. I wounder what their problem was with the Bill or did they vote no because they Dem's had the votes and to help them keep their seats (Causey's election in Berry's case)? Snyder was yea, and one can infer how Boozman voted.

Re: “Jim Keet: Pure Arkie

Found a case kind of on point, Hogan v. Davis, 422 S.W.2d 412 (Ark. 1967), a state appointee to head the State police had lived outside Ark for seven years prior to being appointed, did not meet statutory 10 year residency requirement need for appointment. Appointee's only ties to Arkansas was the fact that his parents lived here, he owned a home here, and he intended to return to Arkansas when he could find a job here. Hum???

Re: “Jim Keet: Pure Arkie

If Keet abandoned his domicile here and set-up residency in Fl, i.e. voting there, filing income taxes there(i.e. not paying any on the state level), would indict that he intended to abandon his domicile here, and make FL the location of his domicile. Therefore, I think, out weighing the property tax issue, and making him a resident of FL for those years. I assume he paid property taxes in FL too.

Re: “Jim Keet: Pure Arkie

SittinN'Thinkin, I dont think a court has reached that question, so if a challenge is brought, it would be an issue of first impression. I did some research, and the only case reference under Ark Constitution Art 6 Sec 5 on Westlaw is the Halter (Clements v. Daniels) case. Maybe a brave voter can find themselves an eccentric attorney to challenge.

Re: “Jim Keet: Pure Arkie

Strange. The Arkansas Constitution requires: Art 6 Sec 5. Qualifications of Governor.
No person shall be eligible to the office of Governor except a citizen of the United States, who shall have attained the age of thirty years, and shall have been seven years a resident of this State.

Someone also tried to get Bill Halter kicked of the ballot in the Democratic Primary in 2006 for this very reason. The court held that because he lived Halter was a resident because you do not loss you residency if you move to another state for education or DC for official US business. And the court held that residency is question of intent. Clement v. Daniels 366 Ark. 352, 235 S.W.3d 521 (2006).

Strange no one has caught this, or why the state GOP didnt think about it.
