LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) — Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected a proposal on Thursday (May 12) to allow three casinos to operate in Arkansas.

One of the casinos proposed would be built in Washington County.

Rutledge cited “ambiguities in the text and the absence of a complete summary of the proposal in the ballot title.”

The proposal also petitioned the operation of casinos in Boone and Miller counties.

    How well do you think AG Rutledge is doing’. Most of the time I see her name she is refusing to let people vote, refusing to let on ballot, because title isn’t clear. Does she think people are incapable or is she being an obstructionist ? Remember this is the person that ran on repealing the ACA, yet the state AG has nothing to do with repealing. And surprised she was elected after watching her performance in the AG debates.

      The AG generally reflects the bias of their party so you are apparently a demoncrat/ liberal of some sort or you could possibly be tied into the casinos and would profit from the approval of them.
