Beebe has 'confidence issues' with lottery director



Gov. Mike Beebe doesn't control Lottery Commission appointments (only three of nine), but that's three-fifths of the way to assembling the votes to fire the lottery director and he presumably has some stick with the legislative leaders who make the other appointments.

So it's of more than passing interest when the governor tells Stephens Media he has "confidence issues" with Ernie Passailaigue. When a fellow is paid $326,000, the IRS penalty bucks stop with him for two years running of late payments.
