Here’s an Arkansas touch in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal (Good Lord, that’s still going on? How long has it been?): Jim Hirni, a former Wal-Mart lobbyist and former legislative director to Sen. Tim Hutchinson of Arkansas, who’s apparently facing a plea agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice for his role in providing World Series tix to a Congressional aide. He’s the latest to go down in the long-running corruption investigation.
Thanks to an Arkansas Project reader Clark Haruspex for the keen eye.
