Michael W. Langley was the ABC Administration Director for 8 years, beginning in February 2007 when he was appointed by then Governor Mike Beebe until January 2015 when he was replaced by Governor Asa Hutchinson's appointee Gary "Bud" Ray Roberts.

After Governor Hutchinson gave Langley the bum's rush, he was named an "of counsel" attorney at the Barber Law Firm in Little Rock. The term "of counsel" means that the attorney has a relationship with the law firm, but is not an associate or partner and usually has no expectation of a promotion or ever becoming a partner. A lot of law firms name former public office holders or heads of government agencies that are attorneys "of cousel" with their firms.  It is more of a public relations move than a reflection on the litigation skills of the individual.

Langley's use of "folks" in his Linkedn profile adds a nice, homey touch.

Speaking of home, back in July of 2010, Langley's wife filed for divorce and it was finalized in May of 2011. Langley was a Pro Se defendant and used his work address at the ABC as his mailing address.


In the divorce decree, reference was made to a reason Langley's wife was seeking the divorce...


Details about what comprised the "certain intolerable matrimonial differences" are not disclosed but the recent data breach regarding the Ashley Madison website might shed a little light. Ashley Madison is a Canada-based online dating service and social networking service marketed to people who are married or in a committed relationship. Its slogan is "Life is short. Have an affair."


In July 2015, a previously unknown group calling itself "The Impact Team" hacked the user data of Ashley Madison. The hackers stole personal information about the site's user base, and threatened to release users' names and personally identifying information if Ashley Madison was not immediately shut down. Beginning on August 18. 2015, the group leaked more than 25 gigabytes of company data, including user details.

According to the data dump it appears that Langley was a subscriber.

The address listed has been verified by the Pulaski County Assessor as the former residence of Langley and his wife prior to their divorce.


Langley once tweeted about paying attention to details....

Perhaps Langley will object to these details being shared but it appears that cheating is a trait that some ABC employees have in common or maybe it is a job requirement.

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
