Secretive Jake Bequette gets his way - as more Arkansas voters learn about his campaign lies

May 13, 2022

An enigmatic U.S. Senate candidate named George Jules Bequette, III, listed as "Jack" instead of his nickname "Jake" on two Arkansas county ballots, has won his pressure campaign to get counties to change the ballots after filing a lawsuit.

Craighead County has announced it is correcting ballots, and Phillips County will change ballots today.

It has been almost 300 days since Bequette's campaign was accused of stolen valor for lying on his campaign website about his military service dates. Yet, Bequette has issued no press release or public statement addressing the issue. And this is quite odd for someone like Bequette, who was quick to allege "election fraud" in Craighead and Phillips county.

Capitalizing on the issue

The unmarried candidate, age 33, almost immediately began fundraising on the question of the "Jack" name on the ballot. He asked donors for emergency donations to help him defend his right to use the nickname "Jake" on Craighead and Phillips County ballots.

However, many people who received the correspondence said the email landed in the spam folder of their email inboxes - as almost all of his messages do.

Someone also purchased the domain JackBequette.com, and forwarded it to JakeBequette.com. The person or entity who purchased the domain on May 11, 2022, is probably connected to the campaign somehow.

NOT an Army Ranger

Jake Bequette has also claimed to be an Army Ranger - even though he never served as an Army Ranger and does not even have the famous tan beret from the 75th Regiment. 

The public affairs specialist at Fort Benning in Georgia, which houses the famous 75th Army Ranger Regiment, told Texarkana News that a person with Bequette's resume should not be called or calling themselves an "Army Ranger" or "Former Army Ranger." 

Hidden swamp creature

Jake Bequette has concealed the fact that he attended law school in Washington, D.C. - probably because he has campaigned against the city by calling it the "swamp."

Bequette likely doesn't want people to know that he is asking voters to go back to Washington, D.C., where he could finish his law degree in the Georgetown Law School Evening program on the dime of Arkansas voters.

It should be noted that Georgetown is a Catholic-based university. In addition, Bequette is Catholic and is likely still a member of the Cathedral of St. Andrew in Little Rock.

The right decision

The irony is rich that Jake Bequette is calling for an investigation into election fraud when he raised hundreds of thousands of dollars while his campaign website contained a lie about his military service dates. 

However, changing the ballots from "Jack" to "Jake" was the right outcome in Craighead and Phillips counties.

This will give voters upset about his campaign lies the chance to vote against "Jake" - not "Jack" - in the Republican primary election.
