I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Ecclesia College Scandal Makes Freedom FROM Religion Happy
Arkansas Christian Politician Pleads Guilty to Bribery Charges in Bible College Scam - World Religion News

Arkansas Christian Politician Pleads Guilty to Bribery Charges in Bible College Scam - World Religion News:

"A corruption scandal involving Republicans and a conservative Christian college has served to make the point of the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF). The FFRF is a nonprofit educational charity whose mission is to keep religion and government separate. In early 2016, the FFRF protested that grants to overtly religious institutions like Ecclesia College were violating the Arkansas and U.S. constitutions."

Neal signed a plea agreement filed in court on January 4, 2017. He admits guilt and could face up to 20 years in prison in addition to a $250,000 fine. The plea agreement states: “Neal agrees and stipulates that he conspired with Senator A and others in the Western District of Arkansas and elsewhere to deprive the citizens of the State of Arkansas of his honest services as an Arkansas state legislator by taking official actions and using his official position to appropriate and direct funds to Entity A and Entity B in exchange for kickback payments.”

Where did all the money go?
The linked story tells how checks were cashed for Ecclesia College
and people were given kickbacks for making the money show up.
That is called honest services fraud.

GJ - I could have told the authorities back in 2014 that the Paris family considered the college and money as their private property.
