Re: “Sen. Missy Irvin objects to mention of suicide in gun safety discussion

Missy Irvin wonders about spending? To make points about influence buying? The head of the new Senate Ethics Committee Missy Irvin?

Michael Morton chuckles at the irony as he writes Irvin another check.

Re: “No to Issue 1. Justice delivers on Trent Garner

Issue 1 is essentially politicians saying to juries of Arkansas voters youre not smart enough to judge our contributors and donors. But thank you for being smart enough to vote for us and for rendering the death penalty. You can still do that. Just dont mess with our cash cows. They need your tax money, trust us.

Re: “Senators propose new ethics rules but won't call for resignation of colleague

So to prove theyre serious about ethics the Senate creates a commission and has it chaired by Senator Irvin who is showered with cash from a guy who bribed a judge to reduce a verdict in favor of a woman who died in his nursing home. Whether they intend to or not, the message they send is clear, and its that ethics is getting lip service (again) from our legislature. Whats next, Bob Ballinger in charge of a legislative commission on transparency in government?
