Although most Americans were outraged by Arkansas’s Congressional Representative Tom Cotton’s violation of the Logan Act, (trending on Twitter as #47Traitors) media missed how the Arkansas Legislature pulled a Rand Paul in order to assist Cotton to higher office.
Kentucky legislators changed the rules so Rand Paul can leisurely decide to run for President, or his seat in Congress.
However, with a raspberry to Kentucky’s Rand Paul, Tom Cotton’s Arkansas cronies went Kentucky four times better. On Tuesday the Arkansas Legislature endorsed Senate Bill 803 to allow Tom Cotton to run for for President, or Vice-President, while at the same time, preserving his right to remain in Congress and run for re-election in the Senate or the House.
Yeah, I think that covers it. 🙂
Senate Bill 802 was introduced by Rep. Senator Bart Hester, with Sen. David Burnett, (D-Osceola) casting the lone vote against SB 803 in committee.
“I think they need to step down if they’re going to run for higher office,” Burnett said.
The Bill goes to the full Arkansas Senate next week.
However, with Cotton in office, it looks as if the Republican war on women is again: 100% Gears Up!
Cotton has not not once passed any legislation to protect women. Being extremely right wing (again, the Harvard education proved a waste of time and money) Cotton doesn’t even want women in combat. So you know he voted against protecting them from domestic violence. Check out Cotton’s record here.
Better, if you can stand it, is Tom Cotton from his days at Harvard, which reveal, well, again, a wasted education given Cotton is on record on marriae, divorce, is straight out of the dark ages.
Largely with the legislature helping these guys scramble to run for any office, it’s not looking good for women. Also, we can expect states will also jump to follow Arkansas’ lead to change the rules so knuckle draggers with their vast background of 60 days in office can continue to think they’re knocking out of the park.
My other fear is idiotic Republican women. Seriously, check this recent, Indiana example.
You can’t make this stuff up.
