JUDGE SUSAN WEAVER FOUND TO HAVE VIOLATED CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS


The Arkansas Ethics Commission has found that Circuit Judge Susan Weaver violated the law by failing to note that her campaign paid for an ad in the Faulkner County Lifestyle magazine in May 2018.

 

However, the Commission declined to sanction Weaver based on good cause. Weaver and Lori Quinn, a co-owner of the magazine, testified that the campaign asked in an email for the magazine to correct the ad before publication to specify who paid for it, but the magazine didn't do so. 

LORI QUINN
 
Quinn, testified that she agreed with the affidavit of Brandy Strain-Dayer, the other co-owner.

"This particular ad was sent to proof and we missed an email they replied it was not correct and we just missed it," Quinn said.

Perhaps a complaint should have been filed against Quinn and her rag for not following the law.

Weaver is a former district judge for Faulkner and Van Buren counties who narrowly defeated Andrea Woods, corporate counsel and executive president of Nabholz Construction, for the Division 1 position in the 20th Judicial Circuit in May 2018. That particular judicial district has a history of being one, if not the most, corrupt district s in the entire state.

Woods filed a citizens complaint against Weaver that led to an investigation by the Commission.

Woods also ran an ad in that issue and it contained the statutory wording.



Three commissioners, Sybil Jordan Hampton, Lori Klein and Ashley Driver Younger, voted to approve a motion to find that Weaver violated state law, but not to sanction her for it. Chairman Tony Juneau of Rogers voted against the motion.

TONY JUNO - ETHICS COMMISSION CHAIRMAN
Under state law, the commission may sanction ethics law violators with a letter of caution, reprimand or warning and/or fines ranging from $50 to $2,000 per violation.

The commission also voted 4-0 to deny Weaver's motion to declare the laws under which the commission operates to be unconstitutional.

We will be keeping a watchful eye on this scofflaw of a judge.

Weaver's attorney, Jeff Rosenzweig, told the commission, "We may wish to appeal on the question of constitutionality and whether a violation was found at all."

Under Arkansas Code Annotated 7-6-228, campaign signs, literature and other printed materials must clearly contain the words "Paid for by" followed by the name of the candidate, committee or person who paid for the material.

Good luck with your appeal shyster.

  The family of a man that is a contractor for ARDOT showed their klan cards last night after a fight at Maly's Entertainment Center in Conway, AR. Michael Wade Kennedy, a convicted felon, allegedly fought with and stabbed a Black teenager outside the venue then he and his klan hurled racial epithets at the teenagers and their families. The Kennedy klan has a long association with ARDOT (formerly the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department). Maylays advertises to "Bring the Whole Gang" and apparently that is what the Kennedy klan did. Here are videos before the fight and of the fight. In the videos you can see the convicted felon Michael Kennedy brandishing a knife.     Here are three videos that show what happened after the fight. In one of the videos you can see Kennedy holding a knife and then secreting it in a females rear pant pocket.     Michael Drew Kennedy was sentenced in 1999 to a 10 year prison sentence after he attacked a man with a knife at a club j

England High School teacher caught having sex with a 18 year old former student in a car in a park

England High teacher Courtani Bell and former student Kaylin Sullivan   On Monday January 8, 2024 at around 6 p.m., an England, AR cop caught Courtani Bell (W/F 29) a teacher at England High School engaged in "public sexual indecency" in the back seat of Bell's car in a public park with a former student, Kaylin Sullivan (B/F 18).   Here's the police report.   The court date for the randy pair is set for February 22nd in England District Court. Bell is married (for the time being as a source says he's left her) and lives in Sheridan with her hubby Layton. Bell's cuckholded hubby works at the Sheridan Police Department as a cop.   Sullivan, will turn 19 in February 2024.   There are questions surrounding the commencement of their relationship and did it began when  Sullivan was a student? We reached out to the England School District for a comment. No response was received. ### Here's the police body camera footage of the arrest. Here's a shorter version

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
