A conflict of interests
How in the great state of Arkansas can Rep. Dan Sullivan, R-Jonesboro, be chief executive of a child-care company that reportedly has been shown to be complicit in child neglect and recently in a child’s death, and be able to be a sponsor of Act 576, which stripped the state commission of its authority to regulate child-care centers?
Can there be any greater evidence of a conflict of interest for an elected representative’s care for his constituents and his own wallet?
I believe Representative Sullivan should either be an advocate for the profits of his company or looking out for the health of the children in his district—not both. Given the choice between the two, it seems he has already made it clear which is of greater importance to him.
