Memphis ABC news affiliate again goes where apparently no one in the Arkansas mainstream media will – the chaotic events of the Democratic Party in Crittenden County.
Last week, they reported on an audio tape from LeRoy Grant – vote hustler in chief – offering to sell some absentee ballots during the Democratic run-off in the special House election last year. I picked up a rumor this week that the FBI agents were back again this week.
Meanwhile, it appears the Crittenden County Democratic County is fighting over who is their new representative on the election commission.
They were set to meet Monday when the snow hit. A handful of Democrats met later and elected Daniel Hatchett. Today, Hatchett – who apparently ran for sheriff in 2010 and also has a West Memphis 3 tie-in as a former business partner of Mark Byers – showed up at the courthouse with a court order for him to be sworn in. The Crittenden County Clerk refused and the Crittenden County Democratic Committee is fighting over who should be the new commissioner.
According to the news report, this one will likely end up in court.
