Former State Senator Jon Woods, along with 79 other federal inmates, sent this letter to @realDonaldTrump volunteering to build the border wall. Say they’re doing it to help the country and asking for a suspended sentence in return. #ARnews #BorderWall pic.twitter.com/vSuWY88TME

All I know about this is the Tweet from Alex Caprariello, a reporter for KNWA, but it speaks for itself.
Jon Woods, the former Republican senator (and “European American”) serving an 18-year prison sentence in the Ecclesia kickback and related scandal, has joined a number of other inmates in a proposition for Donald Trump — put them to work building a border wall in return for suspended sentences.
If Trump finds out that Woods was the first and only Arkansas Republican legislator in the early going to endorse Trump, who knows what might happen? This might not be as nuts as it sounds.
Woods, who’s appealing his conviction, is in prison in Fort Worth.
PS: David Koon did some research on some of Woods’ would-be compadres on the border. He says these match up with some names on the letter.
* A participant in a murder. (Update: The convict notes in a letter that the charge described
* A meth trafficker
Not to mention one of the most corrupt public officials in decades in Arkansas, Woods himself, a corporate toady, ethics abuser and engineer of some of the worst law in the Arkansas Constitution and lawbooks
Set him loose at the border? I prefer the
UPDATE: Surprise. Bart Hester says he doesn’t back the plan to help his ally in shipping money to Ecclesia. But Rep. Jana Della Rosa, part of Woods’ base, said she proofed the letter before Woods sent it to the White House.
