Saunders Weighs in on GOP Executive Director Ray

It looks like the story that we got from ArkTimes about Arkansas Republican Party Executive Director Karen Ray has some legs. David Saunders weighs in on Ray's email which upbraided a legislator expressing qualms about her efforts to aide the Farm Bureau in crafting illegal-alien friendly law. This was done as a favor to business interests who want to depress wages below what the legal free-market labor supply would allow.

The legislator being dissed by the 20-something Ray is said to be Representative Jon Woods of Springdale.

I thought this outrage against the will of the grassroots might be swept under the rug like all of the others. I seem to be wrong about that. GOP politicos get your resumes ready, there might be an opening for Arkansas GOP Executive Director.

Mark,
I talked to a friend about the Executive Committee Meeting Saturday. He didn't have much to say other than there was a long discussion on this issue and this sort of thing will not be allowed any longer by the committee.
I do think its time for a change!

Rick,

what sort of thing will no longer be allowed.

The twenty something executive director creating policy and working at Farm Bureau or first term legislators being allowed to reflect the views of their constituents?

Anonymous,
This is the quote I recieved:
"There was a very long discussion about this. I believe this kind of thing has come to a halt with the entire staff."
Thats all I have.

Thanks for the quote Rick.

Anon- That was quite witty. It is a shame we are in times where it has the kernel of truth in it that allows the jest to work.
