State Democrats Do the Right Thing

It appears that Dwayne Dobbins, who resigned his seat in the state legislature as a "get out of jail free" card, won't be back in his seat after all. You might remember that Dobbins and his wife used secretive tactics to attempt to get him on the ballot unopposed. The Democratic Party of Arkansas made a rules change that has the effect of denying Dobbins' ballot certification. That means the Pulaski County house seat he was running for will either be filled by Green Party candidate Richard Carroll or write-in Clint Hampton.

Even though this action opens the door a crack for another political party, the Democrats in the state just wouldn't go low enough to support Dobbin's shennanigans. Congratulations to them for refusing to circle the wagons around Dobbins, even though it will cost them a seat in the house.
