Election Whitewash

Did you catch that story about the legislative committee to study to foul-ups in the primary elections? The democratic legislators gave a survey to every county clerk asking them questions about the procedure and where certain people may have messed up. They compiled the survey results and decided the company hired to update the machines, ES and S, was to blame.

Only one problem, no where on the survey was there a place for them to evaluate the performance of Secretary of State Charlie Daniels! Even though the county clerks are overwhelmingly democratic, the legislative whitewash committee was not taking any chances. They sent out surveys that asked all kinds of questions about performance- but not about Daniels' office. Then they assemble and hold a press conference where they say, "we have gotten reports from people on the ground and their input is that it was the company's fault".

Well, who hired the company? And why not give them the option of evaluating the Secretary of State's performance in that fisaso? The answer could be that they were not actually performing an investigation, they were performing a whitewash, for both Daniels and some county clerks.

Apparently, the buck doesn't stop with Daniels. As long as you have a good excuse and major party membership, you can mess up all day long.

The Arkfam blog is doing a great job covering old quotes about Beebe and the UTUBE stuff. It is worth a look over there.
