Re: “Civil rights suit targets LRPD

Why does our lovely Ms Rutledge feel the need to join any and every law suit that conservatives file in this country? How much does this cost Arkansas tax payers? She appears to have her sights set on a higher office, yet really isn't even doing a good job in her home state.

Re: “Hogs don't bring out the crowds to War Memorial

It is a sham they are even giving us one game. Seriously? Thursday night? Bad team? They couldn't have at least done it on Saturday? They do that in Fayetteville on holiday weekends. Not to mention the weathermen had warned Harvey was going to hit. They aren't even filling the stands in Fayetteville.

Re: “Arlington owners protest threat of closure

A combination of this has been posted, but I want to back them up to those above who "feel sorry" for the new owners. The old owner is still very much involved. ALL parties knew of the threat to close and the violations. They aren't talking about painting or replacing linens. There are very real safety issues with the hotel. Just let someone get hurt or killed and you guys will then blame the city for not enforcing codes. A local group bought another historic building in downtown HS and totally remodeled it and opened it with all their own money and some grants from the fed. The Arlington needs to do the same and stop this chip on the shoulder routine because the city officials are doing their job.

Re: “You thought Leslie Rutledge had dark money before?

Even my Republican lawyer friends were shocked she won the election. Of course the ONLY reason she won was because she had an "R" next to her name. I would vote for ANY Republican who would run against her. She has done a horrible job as AG and now spends OUR money running across the country to join every suit she can get her hands on. Now she has been rewarded.

Re: “More evidence of Mark Martin's poor judgment on voter data UPDATE

He is term limited so he doesn't care about any negative publicity. He has been a part time SOS at best and run the office with any integrity or efficiency.

Re: “Rapert's grip-and-grin for Commandments contribution

WHY do these other Legislators stand by with him at these press conferences???? Asinine. He lied about the minimum requirement. He lies about scriptures (makes up his own). He originally lied about his GFM account saying the excess money would go elsewhere. Maybe he needs to move that monument to his home since he seems to have forgotten some of them.

Re: “Mark Martin will partially comply with Trump's voter data request

Golfer, you are correct. Most of this information is publicly available. It is what they plan to do with this information that is disturbing. First and foremost, voting processes are a matter for states. Not a commission set up to help Trump verify his claim of winning the popular vote. To claim it is bi-partisan is laughable. By appointing Kobach to be second in command behind Pence says it all. Kobach was just found guilty of lying to a judge about a voting rights issue. He has claimed thousands of illegal votes in KS, but only has a handful of convictions for proof. The commission is a sham. With 42 states refusing to comply, it is embarrassing that AR chose to give in to the demand.
