Controversies

League of the South

Mauch received media attention following his election for his association with the League of the South, an organization that advocates the "secession and subsequent independence of the southern states from this forced union." According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, "the League believes the 'godly' nation it wants to form should be run by an 'Anglo-Centric' (read: white) elite that would establish a Christian theocratic state."[6]

Mauch, who is a former head of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans post in Hot Springs, AK, has called the Confederate flag "a symbol of Jesus Christ" and of "Biblical government."[6] When asked about his association with the League of the South by the Arkansas Times, Mauch acknowledged that he is a member but added that he is "too busy" to be active in the organization. He denied that the League advocated secession from the Union, though he claimed that the group wants "constitutional government" and that secession "has never been unconstitutional."[6]

Scorecards

Arkansas’s Freedom Scorecard

The Advance Arkansas Institute, an Arkansas-based nonprofit research and educational organization, released "Arkansas's Freedom Scorecard" in 2012 and 2013. The scorecard seeks to show how Arkansas legislators voted on the principles the Institute seeks to promote. It measures each state legislator in six categories, which include economic freedom, education reform, good government, personal liberty, small government and tax/budget policy. Scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Institute.[7] Mauch received a score of 87% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 16th out of 97 members of the Arkansas House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
