Little Rock Mayor owed $125,000 at the end of his campaign for reelection


A campaign contribution and expense report ("CCE") the feckless mayor filed on December 30, 2022 shows that he ended his reelection campaign $125.069.63 in the red.

 That filing also provided a breakdown of that debt.

Two out-of-state professional Democratic campaign workers, Rylen Dempsey and Daniel Deriso, both from Alabama were listed as "creditors".

That same filing showed that Scott had paid $12,881,95 to other campaign workers during the period of October 30th through December 30th.

A CCE form filed on November 4, 2022 showed that Scott paid Dempsey $6k and Deriso $18k during the period of February 1, 2022 through October 29, 2022


Observant readers will have noticed that Scott did not sign that CCE dated 12/30/22.


CCE Dated 12/30/22

CCE Dated 11/4/22


The signature on the 12/30/22 CCE is the same signature that appears on documents filed with the Arkansas Ethics Commission regarding Responsible Growth Arkansas  , a ballot question committee that advocates for the passage of an amendment to the Arkansas Constitution to allow recreational marijuana use in Arkansas.

That signature belongs to the treasurer of Responsible Growth Arkansas - Terrance James "TJ" Boyle.

Boyle is also a CPA at Frost, PLLC, an accounting firm in the safe city of Little Rock.

The address and phone number listed on Responsible Growth Arkansas is the address and phone number for Frost, PLLC.


On Scott's 12/30/22 CCE form Boyle indicated that Scott owes his firm $1,000.00.

Scott held a retire the debt party on February 22nd.

According to the Arkansas Times, Scott has a $88,000 negative campaign balance.  The minimum requested contribution amount is $100 and $500 for hosts.   

Scott won't have to file another CCE until April that will reveal contributions made at the event and any remaining negative balance. 


One of the creditors Scott listed on his 12/30/22 CCE was Metamorphasis, LLC  [sic] of 1021 Puritan Drive in Jacksonville, AR. They conducted canvassing in the city for the mayor.

According to the Arkansas Secretary of State, that business entity had it's ability to operate in the state revoked in 2022 for failure to pay franchise taxes.

According the city of Jacksonville, Metamorphosis, Inc./LLC has never been licensed to do business in their city. 

According the city of Little Rock,  Metamorphosis, Inc./LLC has never been licensed to do business in the city. 

That alleged entity did get a PPP loan in the amount of $23,333.00 in February 2021. According the the PPP loan information, they sold men's and boy's clothing.

They were approved for that loan two days before they filed with the Arkansas Secretary of State.

Shady as fuck.

The address for that alleged business entity that employed 10 individuals is a single family residence in Jacksonville, AR.

Clinton and Jasmine were married back in April 2019.


According to Richardson Facebook page he is a realtor.


He is also a deadbeat according to numerous state income tax liens and civil judgements.


According to Jasmine's LinkedIn she is employed at  Friday, Eldridge & Clark as Director of Marketing & Public Relations.


No mention her involvement with Metamorphosis.

As in the LITfest mess, the feckless mayor likes to do business with sketchy, unlicensed business entities and shady folks.

That law firm and real estate agency should have done their due diligence.

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
