The Arkansas Democrat AKA Hypocrat Party...

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette stated in a story yesterday that the Washington County Democratic Committee is running a radio ad accusing U.S. Rep. John Boozman of siding with oil companies at the expense of consumers. Drew Smith, vice chairman of the committee, said “it’s time for people to start asking questions about what’s being done for them in this district.” He continued to say that “it’s about getting people thinking about their leadership in Washington.” In the radio commercial, the male announcer says Boozman did nothing as gas prices hit $ 1. 50, then $ 2, then $ 3 a gallon. He says that Boozman accepted money from ExxonMobil Corp. and voted against stiffer penalties on oil corporations that gouge consumers. Federal Election Commission records show Boozman accepted $ 1, 000 from the ExxonMobil Corp. Political Action Committee in April 2004. (Arkansas Democrat Gaz.)

Mr. Smith, perhaps you should have covered all your bases and checked the reports of the Democrat office holders. Since Mr. Smith did not, The Truth decided to take a look and I think everyone would be interested in the results. It seems that one Blanche Lincoln, just in the 2004 cycle received a total of $4,000 from ExxonMobil Corp. PAC. $2,000 on 9/28/2004, $1,000 on 10/29/2003, and $1,000 on 5/15/2003. Not only did Blanche receive contributions from ExxonMobil she also received a total of $3,000 from Shell Oil Company PAC. $1,000 on 6/24/2004, $1,000 on 4/27/2004 and $1,000 on 12/04/2003. Wait a minute, not only did she receive the $7,000 from Exxon and Shell, she also received a total of $10,000 from Murphy Oil Corp. PAC in 2004. Now the Washington County Democratic Committee is running a radio ad against John Boozman for not representing the Arkansas people and accepting a $1,000 dollar donation from Exxon, when in the 2004 cycle alone Blanche accepted $17,000 from oil/gasoline companies? If this is not hypocrisy I don’t know what is. The Democrat party is looking for anything they can find to discredit and attack John Boozman, but they will not succeed. I think Arkansans need to decide who is representing them better when it comes to gasoline prices, John Boozman who accepted $1,000 from Exxon or Blanche Lincoln who accepted $17,000 from Exxon, Shell and Murphy oil in the 2004 election cycle?

Mr. Smith why did you not include these figures in your ad? I think Jason Willett needs to have a talk with his leadership around the state and tell them to check all the facts before making accusations. Correct if I am wrong Drew, but doesn’t Blanche represent the 3rd district as well? I would say she most certainly does.

Another interesting fact: Drew Smith is the treasurer for the Democratic Party of Arkansas. Just something to ponder about the guy who is managing the finances…I think the Democrats of Arkansas should be a little concerned…
