Primary election day in Arkansas! While many of my progressive friends are crossing over to vote on a more-populated Republican ballot, I can't make myself do that. The nonpartisan judicial races are the most important to me this go-round and I've paid them some extra close attention. For whatever it's worth, yours truly will be voting for Tim Cullen for the Arkansas Supreme Court and Mike Reif for Circuit Judge. I hope you'll resist the urge to skip voting this time--judicial races matter a lot when it comes to, well, justice. If you were one of the thousands of people celebrating marriage equality in Arkansas this month, please remember that it was an elected judge (Chris Piazza) who made that happen AND it will be a group of elected Arkansas Supreme Court justices hearing the appeal. Judicial races are important. Suck it up and go vote.

But it’s not just Obamacare that has Webb Hubbell, former Chief Justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court and associate attorney general of the U.S., concerned about the political fortunes of his party. It’s what he calls “tinkering with Medicare, the tried and true social insurance program that so many older Americans rely on – which so many future older Americans will rely on, too.” “You have to wonder why the administration would hand the Republicans such a gift,” he writes in a commentary piece in WND today.

BREAKING NEWS: Karl Robert's request to have his case re-opened has been granted by the Arkansas Supreme Court just moments ago. Roberts was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of his 12-year old niece, Andria Brewer, in Hatfield. He originally waived his right to appeal and then changed his mind just moments before his scheduled execution in 2004. The state's highest court ruled that it had previously failed to ensure Roberts was competent to waive his rights of appeal.

You may have seen the ads for OBAMA by former Pres Bill Clinton. Can Clinton be trusted to tell the truth, since he lies under Oath ? The following is fact, and can be found on the internet. Please pass this email on to others. BILL CLINTON, 42nd President of the United States, was IMPEACHED by the House of Representatives on two charges: one of PERJURY and of OBSTRUCTION of JUSTICE, on December 19, 1998. The charges arose from the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the Paul Jones lawsuit. On April 12, 1999, Judge Wright found Clinton in contempt of court for “intentionally false” testimony in Jones v. Clinton, fined him $90,000, and referred the case to the Arkansas Supreme Court’s Committee on Professional Conduct, as Clinton still possessed a law license in Arkansas. The Arkansas Supreme Court suspended Clinton’s Arkansas law license in April 2000. On January 19, 2001, Clinton agreed to a five-year suspension and a $25,000 fine in order to avoid disbarment and to end the investigation of Independent C ...
Just a remind of the relative honesty of Slick Willie.In 2000 the Arkansas Supreme Court's Committee on Professional Conduct called for the disbarment of President Bill Clinton, saying he lied under oath about his affair with Monica Le...winsky. In January 2001 Clinton reached an agreement under which he was ordered to pay $25,000 in fines to Arkansas state's bar officials and his Arkansas law license was suspended for five years.[4] The agreement came on the condition that Whitewater prosecutors would not pursue federal perjury charges against him.[5] Clinton was suspended by the Supreme Court in October 2001, and, facing disbarment from that court, Clinton resigned from the Supreme Court bar in November 2001. YEAH!, I'm going to believe him.ROFL!

This from my bud Adam Lansky: To all my supporters, This is fresh news as of Wednesday afternoon from TOM CARPENTER, city attorney: Dear Mayor Stodola and Members of the Board of Directors. Judge Moody held a conference call a few minutes ago and ruled in favor of Mr. Lansky to be added to the ballot, and against Ms. Lott. He is preparing an order now on the matter which will direct Ms. Langley to certify Mr. Lansky’s name, and will direct the Pulaski County Election Commission to take Ms. Lott’s name off the ballot as a candidate. It is possible that Ms. Lott will appeal this decision to the Arkansas Supreme Court, but it would be an expedited appeal and I am not sure there will be time. We could seek an expedited appeal of the decision as to Mr. Lansky, but I would like to review that issue further before I make any recommendation. Please let me know if you have any questions. Tom I will be meeting with Caleb Baumgardner (my campaign mgr.) next week to establish some directives but would love to hav ...
