Arkansas Treasurer

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A year after he was appointed to take over Arkansas' scandal-plagued state treasurer's office, Charles Robinson has fulfilled the goal laid out for him by the governor and lawmakers: Keep the low-profile office out of the news.
    
Beebe and lawmakers are praising Robinson, who was appointed to the post a year ago this week. Robinson replaced ex-Treasurer Martha Shoffner, a Democrat who resigned last year after being arrested in an FBI sting. Shoffner was convicted on 14 bribery and extortion charges after prosecutors said she steered state business to a bond broker who gave her cash payments.
    
Robinson said he's been focusing on addressing the problems with the office and implementing a state law overhauling the post.
