Earlier this week the feckless Little Rock mayor tried to get the city board of directors to fire the city attorney, Tom Carpenter for allegedly using racial slurs.
That didn't work out so well for him.
Someone at LR city hall leaked out to a KATV reporter (one that is known to support the feckless mayor and the former corrupt police chief) a memorandum that Stacey Witherell, the Chief People Officer, a/k/a Human Resources Director sent to the feckless mayor and the city manager alleging misconduct of the city attorney.
KATV did not show the full memorandum, only a small screenshot of it.
But that screenshot is telling, in that it shows a hyperlink to the city website, indicating an electronic copy of the memorandum was forwarded to the KATV reporter.
We have sent a FOI request to dig into revealing the source of the leak and will follow up on that at a later date.
The leak happened conveniently after the feckless mayor's attempt to get rid of the city attorney failed.
Now, as it always happens, the culprits always reveal themselves and we know who initiated the complaint, city employee Samantha R. Wilson.

Wilson, via her attorney, shyster Marion Humphrey, Jr.,sent a statement directly to the feckless mayor and board of directors.
Marion Jr. and his father, retired Judge Marion Humphrey are fanatical supporters of the feckless mayor and of the former corrupt police chief. The one that "retired" during an internal and criminal investigation of his gunplay on News Year's Eve 2021.
Wilson had her license to practice law suspended for non-payment of dues.
That's probably why she is now working at a dead-end city job instead of a private law firm.
The Scott Administration has a terrible records of complying with the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. We have won four lawsuits over FOI violations and just filed our fifth lawsuit. More are on the way.
Little Rock attorney Matt Campbell has also filed a lawsuit over FOI violations and has detailed difficulties and outright lies about transparency by the Scott Administration on his Blue Hog Report website. Campbell was interviewed by KATV concerning his difficulty in getting records about LITfest.
The feckless mayor will do anything to try and get his way.
It's time for change at LR city hall.
***UPDATE - 09/30/22 4:15 P.M.***
It's clear that the Scott Administration is trying to manufacture a reason to get rid of the city attorney. It's pure gaslighting.
Thanks again to Matt Campbell for sharing a copy of a letter he obtained via a FOI request.
The letter is from the city attorney to the feckless LR mayor. Read it for yourself.
The Scott Administration has tried to get rid of Carpenter because he attempts to hold it accountable.
That's why the board told the feckless mayor to shut the fuck up and sit down this past Tuesday afternoon.
We predict that criminal charges will ultimately be filed against Feckless Frank for FOIA violations and misuse and misdirection of public funds.
