of Jacksonville, the former state representative who sued over the 2005 legislative porkfest, thinks the 2007 scheme for splitting up the surplus
could be a constitutional process. If the state agencies that received money pass it out fairly, without special consideration for individual legislators, it's OK, he said. He thinks Gov. Mike Beebe will insure the process is fair. He even thinks the Senate's hiring of an old Republican bureaucrat to supervise the state's pork distribution is OK if the pork supervisor doesn't get too pushy. And if legislators don't try to pull rank. A lot of ifs there.
