Re: “Democrats call down Republican blockade of Supreme Court budget

What about Milligan's attempt to raise the pay of his two behind the scene campaign managers? The same two who managed two of his campaigns while employed by the American Cancer Society on Cancer Society time. I believe they also stopped that, if not - they should.

Re: “Blake announces voter reform legislation

Doigotta, you have a right to go to the courthouse and ask to examine the paper Precinct Voter Registration Book for that polling site - or the electronic poll tablet if that's what they used. If the county clerk cannot produce your signature in either, I strongly encourage you to file a complaint with the State Board of Election Commissioners about the failure to follow procedures. You must file the complaint before December 5th. You can go on-line to their web site for the necessary form. The 30 day deadline is enforced. For relief sought ask for counseling of election commissioners and poll workers involved.

Re: “Plaintiff in Little Rock police case accused of hitting deputy in Cross County

A fine stellar citizen with "issues" who should receive hugs and counseling not incarceration. Wonder if this escapade will be admissible in the Little Rock suit.

Re: “Blake announces voter reform legislation

A couple of comments before my analysis of the draft bill.
Signatures should match and in Jefferson County we compare them and consider the voter's age. As long as everything else matches, the law permits some latitude with signatures.
Yes Doigotta, you should have been required to sign the precinct voter registration book (paper or poll tablet).
Regarding the legislation, my initial reaction is this legislation will be DOA because the voter registration part is clearly partisan. The election part contains one or two good items but for the most part it was authored by someone who does not understand elections. I dont have time right now to address each objectionable section but it takes the teeth out of one of the few things that protect election commissions from interference and voters from harassment by challenges. One example is a candidate currently cannot be a poll watcher on election day but the draft lets a candidate challenge a voter. Currently the only challenge can be to a voters eligibility to vote. It also gives challenge status to unregistered groups on ballot issues. The language is not as it should be in some cases such as using blindness versus "visually impaired" but that's a small thing. Of particular concern is the part about assisting voters. It must remain without comment or interpretation. I will testify against the election part in Committee and defer to the big dogs on the voter registration. One thing for certain, is drivers services registering voters has been problematic in the past with regards to the data being transferred to Secretary of State.

Re: “A different take on the state budget: Invest in vital services, don't cut taxes on rich

Services yes. Welfare and mail money for the able bodied or those who continue to produce numerous children to different fathers no.
