Incumbent Republican John Thurston is running for re-election as Arkansas Secretary of State this year against RINO Eddie Joe Williams. Which one will you choose?
Our clear choice is the current Secretary of State John Thurston because Mr. Eddie Joe Williams has caused us to be greatly concerned over the years. Why? Keep reading.
Let’s talk about the corrupt candidate running against John Thurston: former Mayor of Cabot, RINO Eddie Joe Williams was first elected to the Arkansas State Senate in 2010. He served as a grim and dictatorial Chairman of the Senate Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs and on Governor Asa Hutchinson’s transformation team. Trump appointed him to serve in his administration to represent the White House on energy issues, BUT Mr. Williams has NOT been officially endorsed by our Former President.
What dirty activities has Eddie Joe Williams been engaged in?
Eddie Joe conveniently left the Arkansas Senate just as the FBI began arresting legislators he was associated with for misusing campaign funds such as Gilbert Baker and Jeremy Hutchinson.
RINO Eddie Joe Williams is a man with many facades and will do what he can to serve his own pocketbook and NOT the good people of Arkansas. He is a bully and has been bought and paid for by lobbyists from corporate America. Do you want that sort of man as your Secretary of State?
Here is an older yet vital article from Secure Arkansas written in 2015 about his corrupt actions at the Arkansas Capitol. Here are some snippets:
Go Eddie Go PAC. This PAC has had $110,445.74 rotate through this PAC between 2012 and 2014.
Senator Williams has set up his own PAC (Political Action Committee) which could allow money to be funneled from other PACs and individuals to his own GoEddieJoePAC. The GoEddieJoePAC could then possibly transfer money to other legislators. We think that this practice is being done by many of the Arkansas legislators. When you give money to some of the legislators, your money may end up financing the election of another legislator/campaign.
Republican Senator Eddie Joe Williams donated over $42,000 from his campaign funds to other Senators and Representatives for ticket events in 2012. He’s the Chair of the Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee. Senator Williams is the Vice Chair of the Energy – Joint Committee.
The Eddie Joe PAC can be looked at as a money laundering scheme. There are many corporations that use PACs to hide their identity regarding the source and final destination of funds. It appears that the Go Eddie Joe PAC, which had $110,445.74 rotate through it between 2012 – 2014, is used by Senator Eddie Joe Williams to reward some of the members of the committees of which he is the chairman and co-chairman.
Eddie Joe Williams is running for Secretary of State, but he cannot be trusted with money, let alone integrity or leading our great state in an executive capacity.
EDDIE JOE WILLIAMS – OBAMACARE
He was also Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s advisor during the time that he vetoed the chemical castration bill.
We visited with our current Secretary of State, John Thurston, about the malevolent accusations that Eddie Joe Williams is hurling at him while in office, and here is what Thurston said:
SPENDING ON THE DRONE- This drone is used by our police for security. The drone was a useful tool and proved vital by law enforcement during the Arkansas Capitol riots.
John Thurston’s statement when he served in 2011-2019 as the Arkansas State Land Commissioner:
COSL CONSULTANT- When I came into the Commissioner of State Lands (COSL), my Democrat predecessor had left that office a mess. We had a statutory obligation to provide a water ways system, and at the time there wasn’t a vendor who could do it. We hired an individual who had experience working with COSL before.
COSL BOAT- The Waterways Division is one of the biggest responsibilities of the COSL office. Due to legislation, the office was required to field complaints regarding the states navigable waterways. The purchase of the boat was simply done to help fulfill the duties of the office.
Prior to the purchase, we had to have Game and Fish chauffeur us on waterways.
Eddie Joe is clearly grasping at straws in an attempt to discredit John Thurston and get into this office. Please, dear voter, do NOT turn this unscrupulous man known as Eddie Joe Williams loose to pillage our Arkansas Capitol once again. This questionable man is out, and let’s keep him out!
We need to vote to keep John Thurston as our Arkansas Secretary of State.
