Candidate calls rival insider

Candidate calls rival insider

Don’t let D.C. Republicans pick state leader, he urges

— A Republican candidate in the 2nd Congressional District is challenging central Arkansans to contribute to his campaign to “help stop Washington from choosing our next congressman,” a reference to the support his opponent has received from four top Republican leaders.
Little Rock restaurant owner Scott Wallace painted opponent Tim Griffin as a Washington insider Wednesday even as Griffin, a Little Rock attorney, reaped the benefits of a fundraiser held for him at The Capitol Hill Club in Washington.
The fundraiser was held by U.S. House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia, National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions of Texas, and Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California.
Griffin used to work in Washington as an aide to President George W. Bush and worked with Bush adviser Karl Rove, and is a former interim U.S. attorney in Little Rock, having been appointed after Bud Cummins of Little Rock was pressured to resign to make way for Griffin.
In their latest campaign-finance reports, Griffin reported raising substantially more money than Wallace, $390,535 to $37,261.
Wallace said he is appealing to central Arkansans to contribute $25 or $50 each to his campaign in the next few days. He said “virtually all of [his] campaign funds” have come from within the district, while “a large portion of Griffin’s has come from Washington lobbyists and influence peddlers.”
“It is time to break the cycle of Washington lobbyists and insiders handpicking our representatives and for central Arkansas to let them know that this is ‘our’ seat, and the voters here will be the decision-makers, not D.C.,” said Wallace.
Griffin disputed Wallace’s contention that “a large portion” of his funds have come from Washington lobbyists and influence-peddlers.
“I am proud that we have raised many, many times more 2nd District and Arkansas contributions than my opponent,” Griffin said.
Like U.S. Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Griffin said he welcomes the support of conservatives all over the nation, and his campaign has raised about $500,000 so far.
“The vast majority has come from Arkansas, approximately 70 percent, as of the last filing, came from Arkansas and approximately 5 percent from people who work in government affairs,” Griffin said.
So far, four Democrats have said they’ll seek the post being vacated by outgoing U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder, a Democrat from Little Rock. They are state House Speaker Robbie Wills of Conway, state Sen. Joyce Elliott of Little Rock, Assistant Attorney General John Adams and Snyder’s former chief of staff, David Boling, of Little Rock.
The filing period for federal candidates starts at noon Monday.

NOW!! for the Paul Harvey part of this Story.. 

Tim Griffin is not being completely truthful about the source of his contributions, I have copies of his FEC filings showing most of his campaign money is coming from PAC's, big money contributors, and industry from mostly outside of Arkansas,..
Tim claims to be an Arkansawyer but is not, 1st requirement is to be born in Arkansas, he was born in NC according to his own bio!! 
He claims to be an Iraqi Vet, which is true to a point but as a veteran who understands what is required for campaign medals, he only stayed in theater just long enough to be awarded the Iraqi campaign medal  [91days] none of it in any combat exposed area then returned to DC to work in the office of Karl Rove ...
there is much more,.. Google search Tim Griffin and Karl Rove
The fundraising event held in Feb. IN DC - was NOT the first one since a prior event was held in downtown LR abt 2 weeks before Christmas by some of the same inside the beltway politicians, it is my contention, Tim Griffin was sent to Arkansas with the intention to run against Vic Snyder in this election, I firmly verify and support the position of Candidate, Scott Wallace, and HIGHLY suggest other interested party's search connection between Karl Rove and the Vote caging controversy that took place in Florida in the 2004 election.. I also find it disconcerting that the former US Attorney General Eastern Arkansas District prior to Tim Griffin was not given notice until after Tim Griffin was appointed to the position, I also find it questionable Tim Griffin, suddenly resigned from the US Attorney's office only about seven months after taking the position,.. I strongly question Tim Griffin's motive for running for this office since he has spent most of his adult life away from the State of Arkansas and not he wants to be a Representative for our State,.. this smacks of Civil War Carpetbagging of the first order!! 
All the above goes to Character, principals, ethics and morals of an individual.. is this what we want or need in Arkansas??
