Earlier today we were one of, if not the first, media outlet to obtain all the personnel records that Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Tim Fox ordered the Department of Human Services to release regarding Attorney General Leslie Rutledge employment and separation from employment with that agency.

An employee with the Democratic Party of Arkansas ("DPA")  filed a lawsuit against DHS to release the personnel file of Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, which would include her termination files.

Attorney Chris Burks filed the lawsuit on behalf of Reed Brewer, DPA communications director, against Cindy Gillespie, in her capacity as Arkansas DHS Director, for a “refusal to provide public records.”


According to the lawsuit, Brewer filed a Freedom of Information Act request on Monday, July 2nd, seeking Rutledge’s personnel file while she was an agency employee and all communication to the present day between DHS officials and Rutledge.

DHS reportedly acknowledged the request on July 5th and requested a five-day extension, which Brewer did not agreed to.

Under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, government entities typically have three days to provide documents have been requested under the AFOIA.

DHS requested another extension on July 25th, and Brewer granted an extension until July 25th for the personnel file and August 3rd for the emails. 

On July 27th, Brewer received a 51-page personnel file that reportedly “does not include all job performance records and personnel file records.”

In the lawsuit, Brewer contended that the file he received was the “exact same 51-page document released in 2014.”

Brewer is asking the court to find that Gillespie failed to comply with the FOIA request “either in bad faith or negligently” and order the agency to provide the documents.

Brewer said his intent with the lawsuit was to determine why Rutledge was terminated as an employee at DHS, citing a “public interest” in the issue.

According to Brewer, the issue of Rutledge’s DHS termination “has been in the news cycle” for several years and needs to be resolved.

Rutledge responded to the lawsuit with a written statement, claiming the Democratic Party is “dragging up decade-old fake news.”

“As I said in 2014 and the record is clear: I voluntarily resigned my position with DHS on December 3, 2007, to immediately begin working on my friend and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign,” Rutledge said.  “On December 13, 2007 — ten days after my voluntary resignation — my former supervisors at DHS scratched out ‘voluntary’ and altered my personnel file to reflect something that was completely false without any notice to me or legal justification for doing so.”

Matt Campbell on his Blue Hog Report back in 2014 exposed questionable emails that Rutledge had sent during her employment with DHS.

Voters need to make a change in November and send ole Leslie on her way.

Trump might be looking for a new Attorney General and she is already one of his lackeys.

ASP Trooper Jacob Haynie caught on his own mobile video recordings using the N-word

On November 21, 2023, after one of those questionable PIT maneuvers (the ASP now calls  Precision Immobilization Technique , or PIT maneuvers, Tactical Vehicle Intervention or TVI) ASP rookie trooper and former Hope Arkansas cop Jacob Haynie was caught on his and other ASP mobile video recordings using profanity and the N-word.   ASP policy prohibits the behavior and words Trooper Haynie uttered. That same policy also prohibits actions and behaviors that reflect unfavorably on the ASP. Haynie's wife works at the Hempstead County Assessors office. Wonder if she uses that language at work too?  ### The full videos can be viewed on many of the YouTube Channels that feature ASP videos.  A follower of one channel identifies Haynie as the one uttering the words. Apparently that individual knows Haynie and might have worked with him at Hope PD. ASP claims no one said the words "climb" or "N***a" and the trooper using the fowl language was actually Tyler Gentry. Ri

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
