ETHICS COMMISSION REAFFIRMS IT'S POSITON ON EXPLORATORY COMMITTEES IN RESPONSE TO CITY OF LITTLE ROCK'S REQUEST FOR AN ADVISORY OPINION
The Arkansas Ethics Commission has reaffirmed their position that they are not vested with enforcement powers with respect to municipal ordinances and that exploratory committees are permissible under Arkansas law.
In an email to the publisher of this blog, Little Rock City Attorney Tom Carpenter expresses his curiosity about what he calls the Arkansas Ethics Commissions "non ruling."
Apparently Carpenter only learned of the issuance of the opinion after a reporter called him about it.
As the Ethics Commission made clear in their response to a citizens complaint about potential mayoral candidate Warrick Sabin, they are not empowered to look into or deal with municipal ordinance issues.
We expect that the Little Rock Board of Director's will shortly decide to file a lawsuit seeking to stop the two exploratory committees of the stated challengers of Mayor Mark Stodola.
