For the last several years there have been numerous discussions, complaints, criticism, and laws passed concerning campaign finance reforms by liberals. Now that we have a candidate in Arkansas, Bill Halter for Lt. Governor, that exemplifies all those negative aspects of campaigns, there is not a peep from the liberal journalists or newspaper reporters.
Halter received only 2.5% of his contributions from Arkansas on the $231,880 financial statement he filed June 30, 06. Halter received 5% ( $9,425), from Arkansas citizens out of the $189,433 he raised during the period of his financial statement on June 6 . On this June 6 report (actually dated June 3rd but on records as June 6 date) , Halter received $46,250 from contributors in California $46,000 from citizens in other states, receiving only 25 contributions from Arkansas and all but nine were from Little Rock. He footed the bill for the other $81,908.
Halter spent most of his last 25 years out of Arkansas and has come back to Arkansas to buy the office. His stands on issues certainly show he could not be be elected in Arkansas if people knew his position on issues and his background. Practically none of his money is coming from southern or surrounding states. That indicates that none of his support is from the typical Democrat in Arkansas.
That fact is more disturbing than if he were just a rich man buying the office for himself. Halter is a bought and paid for by the leftist liberals of his party. Therefore, his out-of-state liberal contributors will be running the Lt. Governor's office and any office that might Halter to in the future. It is quite possible even that the Lt. Governor would be the real governing officer, being backed by the leftist liberal Democratic machine and pushing Beebe to conform – that is if Beebe and Halter both are elected.
"The Press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of the government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people," said Hugo L. Black, US Supreme Court Justice.
Is there any real integrity left in the media?

There are more listings for June 30th, but the one we used was the first one listed (only one posted when we did our research) and is in the amount of $231,880.00 Line 6, total Contributions. There is only one listing for June 6th and that amount on Line 6 is $189,433.39 Total Contributions. A quick look at his other reports will show they are very similar.

Halter's Campaign Contribution and Expenditure Report June 30, 06.
(Only 2.5% from Arkansans other than himself.)
lst number mentioned in my letter to voices. (See below for 2nd numbers in my letter)
Pull up Halter's Report on June 30 (the first one listed) from this link http://www.sos.arkansas.gov/arkimg/index.html Type in Halter in the Search blank. Enlarge to 100% so you can see the information.
(There are two other reports listed for this date, but there are no contributions on one of them and only one contribution on the 2nd one) That is why we chose the first report for this date)
Go to the PDF report (it is called 155062) which is on the menu bar that comes up.
On Number 8 of the Report Total contributions are $231,880
On Number 10 under Loan Information, Halter lent himself $200,000 so $200,000 of the contributions were from himself.
On Number 14 where the contributions are listed there were only 10 contributions from Arkansas as listed below which totals 5,905.00.
Divide $5,905.00 (from Arkansas) by $231,880 Total Contributions and you get .0254657 which round off to 2.5% that Halter got from Arkansas citizens.

On Number 8 of the Report Total contributions are $189,433.39
NOTE: On Number 14 where the contributions are listed look down to the 29th contribution listed with date of 5/30/06 on (page 4of 19 )and you will see a contribution from Halter himself for $81,908.39 but it is listed as contribution from Little Rock. (You are not allowed over 2,000 contribution unless it is from yourself so this has to be from Halter and it is listed from Halter for Arkansas Lt. Governor)
The next contribution is from his wife for 2,000 and the next contribution is also named Halter, probably his father. Total contributions coming from Arkansans other than Halter and his wife and I think his father (list pasted below) equals$ 9,425.
Divide $9,425 from Arkansas total contributions $189,433.39 (in Line 6 of report) and you get .0497536 which is 4.9% or rounded off 5%. So Halter received only 5% of his money from Arkansas citizens other than himself and his wife.

$9,425 from Arkansas other than from Halter and his wife
Total contributions from state of Arkansas$9,425 when you exclude Halter's donation to himself and his wife. Only 9 contributions outside Little Rock in Arkansas.
Halter received 23 contributions from California of $2,000 each and one for $250 for a total of 46,250.00 (See information below. A cursory look may overlook some from Cal. Some may have had just San Francisco or Los Angeles addresses on the report.) I had counted the one 250.00 California contribution as 2,000 contributions in my record so you can lower that figure from $48,000 to 426,250 if you like but that is a minor mistake.
Halter received 23 contributions of $2,000 or 46,000each from other states besides California(see information below)

For my own records:$81,908.39 plus his wife2,000, plus another Halter contribution of 2,000 (probably his father) plus 46,250 from California, plus $47,950 from other states, plus 9,425 from Arkansas equals $189,533.39 and his total is $189,433.39 so I am just 100.00 off and don't have time to go back and find it but it would make no difference in the figures.
