GOPer Can’t Vote In Arkansas After Clerk Finds She Registered In Other States


The voter registration for Arkansas Republican attorney general candidate Leslie Rutledge has been canceled after Pulaski County Clerk Larry Crane found out a week ago that Rutledge had been also been registered to vote in Washington D.C., and maybe Virginia as well.

On Tuesday Crane cancelled Rutledge’s registration once he confirmed that she was registered to vote in Washington D.C., according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Rutledge served as legal counsel for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s (R) presidential campaign.

Crane, according to the Arkansas newspaper, had registered in Pulaski County in 2006. She registered to vote in Washington in July 2008 and then voted absentee in Arkansas in the 2008 general election.

In September TPM flagged a report that Kathy Myalls, a candidate running for the a seat in the Illinois state legislature, had managed to vote in both Illinois and Wisconsin in the past few years. Officials said that practice was “improper” and the fact that she voted in two states in a short period of time also put into question whether she’s eligible to actually serve in the state legislature if elected.
