LR Mayor caught breaking law by using city resources for campaign activites

In addition to his illegal actions involving transparency and the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act (we have obtained four judgments against him for violations of the AFOIA), the feckless Little Rock mayor has violated the law by using city resources for his re-election campaign.

Exhibit A. 

On or about May 26, 2022, we discovered that Scott had directed city employees to add his personal Twitter feed to the city of LR homepage of the city website. It just so happened that our screenshot captured him illegally using city resources to advertise and promote his re-election campaign.


Shortly after we sent this email, the city removed the display of Scott's personal Twitter feed and replaced it with a display of the CLR Twitter feed. 


Exhibit B.

Leander Hampton called 311 asking for a Frank Scott campaign sign for his yard . Rather than saying “you’ll have to contact the campaign,” that request for a campaign sign was forwarded to his chief of staff Kendra Pruitt.



Matt Campbell, Attorney and publisher of Blue Hog Report, was provided with this deleted email in response to an unfilled FOI request.

City attorney Tom Carpenter, discovered that his employee, Samantha Wilson, had deleted that particular email along with other emails and a video of a conspiratorial LITfest Zoom meeting instead of providing them to Campbell in response to his FOI request.

The Scott Administration is an embarrassment to the city of Little Rock and its citizens.

It's continual violation of laws should be investigated by the Arkansas Attorney General and the Department of Justice.

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

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
