Dedicated Arkansas Project reader Bill from Sheridan (that’s him there at the left) sends this note that Arkansas native Tom Cotton is getting some attention over at the Powerline blog.
Cotton, who I think hails from Pope County hails from Yell County, was the Harvard-educated lawyer who resigned his job with a D.C. law firm after 9/11 to enlist in the military. He enjoyed some national renown earlier in 2006 when he publicly took the New York Times to task for disclosing compromising information about a secret government program to disrupt terrorist financing.
Cotton had returned to Arkansas to practice law after his last tour of duty, but has since withdrawn his resignation and re-upped for service in Afghanistan. The Powerline blog has the scoop.
