Re: “Former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel applauds Trump's EPA choice of climate change denier Scott Pruitt

Can we please stop referring to Attorneys General as "General"? They are not Generals of anything.

Re: “Supreme Court reduced in gas cases

Amendment 80 says that a justice of the Supreme Court shall be a licensed attorney for at least 8 years immediately preceding the date of assuming office. It also says that special justices must meet the qualifications of justices. One of the special justices has been an attorney for only 5 years. The losing side might want to think about that.

Re: “Gov. Beebe says he'll appoint treasurer soon

The D-R balance of constitutional officers is at issue, which means every County's election commission composition.

Re: “An umpire for judicial elections

If they are going to eliminate a run-off or have a run-off on the normal June schedule, then why leave judicial elections in May? They should absolutely be moved to November, when more voters vote and more issues/races are on the ballot. It makes no sense to label judicial elections as non-partisan, but then ask the candidates to campaign during the primary season when the likely voters are the most partisan out there. The candidates must then campaign at the most partisan of events and endure very partisan questions from leaders of the parties themselves. It's inconsistent with the notion of non-partisan judicial elections. If this committee is truly interested in electing judges, then it should be interested in moving them to the "real election" in November.

Re: “Can Martha Shoffner survive?

Dear Joe, you clearly don't know Mac if you would ask that question. Mac would have made us proud, not embarrassed. We can only hope he'll run for office again some day.

Re: “Pedestrian killed at Markham and Pearl

He worked for the Legislature. They've lost two employees in recent weeks under very tragic circumstances. I hope legislators will rally around their families and help them financially.

Re: “Judge: Plans no complaint against Altes

I wish the Ethics Commission followed its own rules. Nothing in the rules requires a notarized complaint, just one signed under penalty of perjury. Very different legally speaking, and the additional burden of finding a notary likely has a deterrent effect on the average citizen. But the Commission doesn't know the difference or doesn't care. They send it back and completely ignore the complaint, regardless of merit, if not notarized. That makes me wonder, does the Ethics Commission really care about ethics?
