State Treasurer Martha Shoffner Arrested for Extortion by FBI
Arkansas Business ^ | 5/18/13

Posted on 05/19/2013 1:04:18 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner has been arrested for extortion by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being held in Pulaski County Jail, the Associated Press reported Saturday.

FBI spokeswoman Kimberly Brunell told the AP that Shoffner was arrested Saturday at her home in Newport and is scheduled for a federal court hearing Monday. Brunell said Shoffner was arrested on charges of "extortion under color of official right."

Brunell said she would have more details Monday.

The arrest comes four months after Arkansas Business reported that the Democratic state treasurer had been under criminal investigation for more than a year when, on Dec. 14, the Republican-led Legislative Joint Auditing Committee voted to refer an audit of her office to state and federal authorities.

I’ve also heard it referred to as, “under color of authority”.

Just look at our government, both parties are pro big-government and are corrupt to the core.
If the last five years have not convinced you of that then I can't help you.
There is no accountability and the so called Rule of Law along with most of the Constitution has been shredded.
I will never support either party again nor I think support or vote for those running for National Office because at this point there is nothing to be done except wait for the inevitable collapse to occur.
Now I can't give you three specific names of corrupt Republicans but they are out there and don't be naive to think they aren't. D.C. is Cesspool and it is obvious to one and all on a daily basis.

The best way to control someone is to make them feel helpless. I don’t believe in controlling people. I believe in leading people. You are not helpless. The Democrats want you to believe that so they can control you. Get back into the fight.
