Leslie Rutledge is the Republican candidate for Attorney General of Arkansas. In her campaign information, she strongly supports recent changes to voter registration laws in Arkansas, which discriminate against minorities and low-income voters.
Ironically, Rutledge had her voter registration cancelled because she violated the same laws that she supports. She was simultaneously registered in three states. This may possibly cost her the election, because candidates are required to be registered voters in the state.
Now here’s the hypocritical part. Republicans are outraged that she was removed from the voter rolls, calling it voter suppression and a “dirty trick” that was politically motivated.
But when a candidate to be a state’s top lawyer can’t even follow the law properly, you gotta wonder if she is qualified to enforce the same laws that she so vocally supports.
