Mike Beebe: Champion of Public Safety
Mike Beebe, Governor of Arkansas, is determined to make our job as easy as possible.
Governor Beebe has named former state senator Cliff Hoofman to the state Highway Commission.
In 1999, Hoofman was stopped by the police for driving erratically. He had a blood-alcohol content of 0.24 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
Beebe says he knows no one more committed to highways than Hoofman, and that the former senator was a logical choice for the appointment.
Good one, Beebe! What's next, Robert Byrd as head of the Senate Appropriations Committee? Ha!
