Democratic Party of Arkansas Calls on Attorney General and Sixth Judicial District Prosecutor to Investigate Non-Partisan Audit Findings

LITTLE ROCK – Today, the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee released their  damning “LecternGate” report detailing multiple policies, rules, and laws that were potentially broken in using state money, obfuscating the purchase, then later transferring the lectern to the Republican Party of Arkansas.

“This is not and never was a partisan matter, but a very serious investigation of wrongdoing by government officials who may have broken as many as seven state laws,” said Democratic Party of Arkansas Chair Grant Tennille. “We call on the Attorney General and Sixth Judicial District Prosecutor to swiftly deliver justice to any government official found to have committed an act of corruption in our state government.”
