Arkansas: Pardon Revisited (Update)

In a recent post (here: Arkansas: Pardon Revisited), PardonPower discussed the case of the former Attorney General of Arkansas, Steve Clark, who now desires to be mayor of Fayetteville. Problem is Clark is a convicted felon. Good news is that he was pardoned by former Gov. Mike Huckabee, in 2004. It is now contended that Arkansas Supreme Court rulings suggest that a pardon alone does not make Clark eligible. The attorney for the secretary of state says an expungement of the conviction is required before Clark can run again. See story here.
