It’s Monday. On the bright side, there’s the new Arkansas Business. In this week’s edition:
Mark Hengel investigates Ernie Passailaigue’s time as head of the South Carolina. Let’s see: There was an FOI lawsuit, a conflict over a $7.5 million advertising contract, and allegations that Passailaigue, a former South Carolina state senator, benefited from cronyism.
