Officials say Arkansas treasurer should resign

Posted: Updated:

   LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- A number of officials say Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner should resign after she allegedly took cash from a broker who managed state funds.
   Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor and Arkansas GOP Chairman Doyle Webb were among those who said Monday that Shoffner, a Democrat, ought to resign immediately.
   Shoffner, however, says she doesn't intend to step down.
   Federal prosecutors say Shoffner accepted $12,000 a year from a broker who would sometimes deliver cash in a pie box -- with a pie.
   Shoffner appeared in federal court Monday after she was arrested this weekend at her home in Newport. She was released on her own recognizance. She was also ordered to surrender her passport.
