Wills Campaign Gets Ugly Against Joyce Elliott

May 29th,

By jsamuel: Blue Arkansas Blog

A reader sent us a mailer
sent out by the Robbie Wills campaign attempting to slime Joyce

Essentially, it attacks her for having the gull to support a woman’s
right to choose, restricting gun rights, outlawing prayer in schools,
and being ineffective in office. Let’s look at each of these issues and
the support provided by the mailer…

  1. How could any self respecting Democrat be pro-choice?! (*sarcasm*) 

  2. On gun rights, the Wills campaign cites no votes and provides no
    support for the accusation besides the NRA. Look, I am pro-2nd
    amendment, but I really don’t listen to anything the NRA says. There is
    supporting people who like to hunt and then there is a much more radical
    agenda out there that the NRA pushes a lot of the time.

  3. Now about the vote on prayer in public schools… HB
    of 2005 was nonsense. It basically just restated what the US
    Constitution already states on the issue. It was entirely redundant and
    unnecessary. HB 2971 died in the state Senate. It seems like the
    majority in the Senate committee thought the bill was unnecessary, not
    just Joyce Elliott.

  4. The accusation that she is ineffective is laughable. I am sure a
    perusal of her website would say
    otherwise. But, true to form, I looked up the link provided by the
    mailer to “support” the accusation. I typed in the web address and got
    the following message:

    “Your account is not currently logged into your
    legislative service. Please select the appropriate state and service
    below to log in. The links in the report will work at that time. If you
    are not currently a subscriber, click on the appropriate link for
    contact information.”

    Okay, so no support at all for the accusation, just an error
    message…thanks! Now who is ineffective again Wills?

Anyway, the point of the mailer is clear. Wills is trying to paint
her as an “extremist” while also having those around him claim that HE
is the true progressive. His campaign is getting about as nasty and
contradictory as Blanche Lincoln’s campaign, and that is not a good
