Questionable spending surfaces in the relection campaign of Frank Scott, Jr.

Clinton & Jasmine Richardson and their pal Mayor Frank Scott, Jr.

Remember all the hullabaloo surrounding that LITfest contract they mayor had set up with a business that was not registered to operate in the city or state?

Well it wasn't the first time he did that.

We uncovered an earlier instance during his reelection campaign.

Scott filed a campaign contribution and expense report ("CCE") on December 30, 2022 that listed a shocking $125,000 deficit.

One of the creditors Scott listed on that form was Metamorphasis, LLC  [sic] of 1021 Puritan Drive in Jacksonville, AR. They conducted canvassing in the city for the mayor.

Here's where the plot thickens...

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.

Documents filed with the Arkansas Secretary of State listed Clinton Richardson and his wife Jasmine Richardson as incorporator/organizer and member.

Now the plot gets thicker still...

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. 

Apparently that sham business was only set up to get funds from the federal government during the pandemic.

The Richardson's got 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 even claimed that business employed 10 individuals.

And dear readers, the plot thickens to a boil...

They were approved for that loan two days before they registered that business 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 owned by Jasmine Richardson.

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.

The Friday Law firm often represents the city when the city attorney has a conflict.

Perhaps the Richardson's will need the services of that law firm in the near future.

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
