    Rutledge has the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.

    If she can bring down some of the corrupt officials and judiciary members in this area, she’ll be well on her way to a promotion.

    She could be the next governor, or some lady you’ve never heard of before. We’ll see.

      She tried to register to vote in Arkansas as well as DC, at the same time. Technically, that makes her barred from elective office.
      She is under a “Do Not Rehire” order at DHS where she used to work. This has yet to be explained.
      Yep, she’s a good one.

    She’s a shameless self-promoter. Can’t tell that she does anything other than try to be pretty and take credit.
