Beebe Calls on Treasurer to Resign After Arrest

Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe (D) said State Treasurer Martha Shoffner (D) "ought to resign after she allegedly took cash from a broker who managed state funds," KTBS-TV reports.

But Shoffner said she doesn't intend to resign.

"Federal prosecutors say Shoffner accepted $12,000 a year from a broker who would sometimes deliver cash in a pie box -- with a pie. The broker is cooperating with investigators."
