Ethics Commission Investigating Secretary of State Daniels

AUGUST 8, 2006 - Posted at 7:26 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Ethics Commission is investigating a complaint against Secretary of State Charlie Daniels that claims a voter guide produced by his office includes an endorsement of Daniels' re-election on the back page.

The Voting 101 guide bears the acronym "ELECT" for Energetic Leadership Educating Citizens Together.  It also reads, "A voter education program presented by Arkansas Secretary of State Charlie Daniels."

Last month, Jim Parsons of Bella Vista filed the complaint against Daniels.  Parsons says the most prominent words on the back of the brochure are "elect" and "Charlie Daniels" and "Secretary of State."

Parsons says Ethics Commision Director Graham Sloan confirmed to him the panel would investigate.

The Ethics Commission does not comment on whether a complaint has been filed and Sloan would not confirm that he sent the letter to Parsons.
