Notes: No Appeal Greens On Ballot, Brummett on Holt

Secretary of State Charlie Daniels has decided his office will not appeal Judge Howard's decision that Arkansas' ballot access laws are unconstitutional. I guess he has enough to do with election problems to spend anymore time trying to keep people off the ballot. His official reason for the about face was that "he would like to see more voter turnout", an excuse that is DOA. This means that the Green Party of Arkansas will be on the ballot this November. This includes their candidate for Governor, former state Representative Jim Lendall of Mabelvale.

The Greens have their slate of candidates set, EXCEPT for Lt. Governor. They say they plan to meet today to pick a Lt. Governor candidate, which I find very curios. Are they going to try to spring a surprise candidate on us? Stay tuned.

Speaking of Lt. Governor......

Brummett gave us a paraphrased conversation he had with Lt. Governor candidate Senator Jim Holt today. He is more entertaining as a writer when he just tells the story rather than when he clouds it by pouring on the invective (he still got some good shots in, but it flowed more this way).

Daniels must have known that Lagrone was getting ready to blow him to pieces if he would have appealed. If he had done so it would have been the SECOND time the military was disenfranchised.

I think that is the real reason.

I do, too. Daniels also knows that Lagrone is going to be all over his case the closer it gets to election time. Go get 'em Jim!

Hopefully the Green's success will be the start of freedom of ballot access for all parties in Arkansas.

Brummett takes you up then down when he writes this way. Something was more effective about it. He told both sides so it moved you back and forth instead of just one direction, so it had more texture.
