Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson (R) on Tuesday night twice denied to Tucker Carlson that he had spoken with corporate interests about his decision to veto a pro-family bill banning child sex change surgeries and the experimental drugging of children with cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers.
On March 31, while discussing a slew of pro-family, anti-LGBT bills Republicans were pushing in Arkansas, Hutchinson told Fox News: "We're the home of some major global corporations here in Arkansas, they're certainly worried about the image of our state."
From National Review:
The SAFE act is just one of a slew of LGBT bills to come to Hutchinson's desk in recent weeks. In the last month, Hutchinson has already signed into law a bill that prohibits biological males from competing in womens' high school and collegiate sports, as well as legislation — which he opposed in 2017 — that protects the conscience rights of health-care professionals who object to providing "a particular health care service."NRO noted his veto earned immediate praise from the Walton family (who inherited their wealth from their father).
While it remains unclear whether the Walton family personally lobbied Hutchinson on the bill — neither Hutchinson's office nor the WFF returned requests for comment — the two have ties. Per FEC records, the Waltons are longtime financial supporters of Hutchinson's political career, as is Walmart. Sam Walton's brother, Steuart Walton, is a current board member at Walmart and was tapped by Hutchinson last April to chair the state's "Economic Recovery Task Force."If Hutchinson didn't consult directly with corporate interests about this veto -- and that's a big if -- it's only because he didn't have to.
He's so joined at the hip with corporate interests that their interests are his interests and vice versa.
