Arkansas GOP Requests Appointment of Election Monitor in Pulaski County; Files FOIA Requests with the Pulaski County Clerk’s Office

Little Rock, Arkansas — The RPA Chairman Doyle Webb and Executive Director Megan Tollett issued the following statement following Democrat County Clerk Larry Crane’s violation of State and Federal Law in the removal of Leslie Rutledge from the voter file in Pulaski County.

The RPA today filed a request to the State Board of Election Commissioners to have a certified election monitor appointed to Pulaski County; as well as, having filed FOIA requests to the Pulaski County Clerk’s Office for records which could substantiate the partisan activities of the Office in the race for Arkansas Attorney General.

“It is shamefully obvious that the old Democrat machine will stop at nothing to keep a well qualified Republican candidate from becoming the next Attorney General of the State of Arkansas,” said Chairman Webb. “Mr. Crane’s actions were clearly unprecedented and in violation of State and Federal law. The people of Arkansas will overwhelmingly elect Leslie Rutledge and in so doing, continue to reject the corrupt, Democrat politics of the previous one-party system.”

“In light of yesterday’s alarming revelations, we have first begun with a request to the State Board of Election Commissioners seeking an appointment of a certified election monitor to makes sure the integrity of the vote in Pulaski County is upheld since Mr. Crane is obviously playing partisan politics,” said Tollett. “I have directed FOIA’s to his office in hopes of discovering who else he may have thrown off the voters rolls in the last year and what partisan communications may be going on between his office and Democrat strategists, operatives and candidates.”
