In a previous post we detailed how tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet was violating state personnel policies and perhaps breaking state laws by letting his secretary, Milinda Brown, take paid leave to run personal errands.

We discovered that it was not a single isolated event.  In fact it appears to be a pattern.

As previously reported on August 14, 2015 Hamlet let Brown take approximately three hours off without requiring her to take annual leave. We know this because Brown did not file a leave request for that date.

On December 2, 2015 Brown told Hamlet she needed to leave an hour early to take her mother on an errand.

As we pointed out in our previous post about Hamlet's and Brown's defrauding the State of Arkansas, Brown's position does not accrue compensatory time so if she wants to take off from work to run errands, she has to take annual leave.

And just like last time, there is no record of Brown filing a leave slip for December 2nd.

Hamlet has no excuse for cheating the state and the citizens of Arkansas by letting his secretary get paid for time that she was not at work, but running personal errands.

Hamlet was required to meet with Carla Wooley-Haugen, with the DFA Office of Administrative Services to review Human Resources Policy and Procedures, including the state's leave policy. 


It was a serious mistake for DFA head Larry Walther to appoint Hamlet to head ABC Enforcement and before too long he will regret that decision (hint about an upcoming lawsuit that will blow the roof off the 1515 building).

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
