Governor Beebe's Statement on the Indictment of Treasurer Martha Shoffner

“I think Martha Shoffner should resign, and I think she should resign immediately. While everyone is presumed innocent until legal proceedings are complete, it would be very hard for the Treasurer’s Office to function properly under her continued leadership. When you are elected to any public office, your conduct is held to a higher level of expectations to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. These alleged actions are far worse than that.” - Governor Mike Beebe
