“Today, we are asking that Mr. McCormack preserve the integrity of the Arkansas Ethics Commission and immediately withdraw his public endorsement of Rep. Linda Tyler,” said Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Doyle Webb.
On Rep. Tyler’s website for her State Senate District 35 campaign, the names “Bob and Armilda McCormack,” are listed under the endorsement tab. Prior to being appointed to the Commission by Governor Mike Beebe this January, Mr. McCormack was also documented online as a supporter of Rep. Tyler’s State Senate Campaign. These pictures continue to remain on her campaign website and Facebook page.
“Judging from Mr. McCormack’s strong ties with Rep. Tyler, we ask that he recuse himself from any future matters which might come before the Ethics Commission regarding Rep. Linda Tyler and the State Senate District 35 campaign. We owe it to the citizens of Arkansas to remain fair and non-partisan,” said Webb.
