Fact Check: Wasteful Spending And The Ark. Governor Race

by Wochit 0:44 mins

A Democratic ad in the Arkansas governor's race falsely accuses GOP nominee Asa Hutchinson of allowing wasteful spending of taxpayer funds for employee bonuses and a lavish "birthday party." In fact, Hutchinson wasn't running the agency in question and wasn't cited by the report that brought the expenditures to light. The ad also says Hutchinson voted against a "tax relief" measure. But the bill in question mainly would have benefited workers who paid little or no federal income taxes in the first place. The ad went online June 12 and began airing in Little Rock on June 13. It is just the latest in a campaign marked by exaggerations and misleading claims on both sides.
