The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (link corrected) on-line that former UCA President Allen Meadors has pleaded guilty to a reduced misdemeanor charge of an FOI violation and received a $250 fine in a case that began as a record tampering misdemeanor charge. Meadors was accused of destroying a letter that revealed a campus food service vendor’s offer to provide $700,000 for a president’s home project was related to a contract extension.

Now. Can we look into that $5 million worth of budget busting in the University of Arkansas advancement division and perhaps shine some sunshine on unaccounted money funneled into that operation from the UA foundation?
