Timeline: Former clerk’s Facebook posts during alleged million-dollar-embezzlement

JONESBORO, Ark. – Former Craighead County Clerk Kade Holliday was no stranger to social media during his entire run from winning the election in 2012 until literally days before his arrest in June, 2020.

However, when reviewing his social media posts in context with the dates of the five and six-figure transfers from a county account to his personal account, the posts now have a different impact on the reader.

The posts began in January with Holliday in extravagant locations discussing business. He went quiet for several weeks after the first transfer. From there through the end of April, Holliday made few if any posts on social media about business outside of the clerk’s office – or generic sports posts. One day after taking over $200,000 out of the county account, Holliday said 2020 was a 0/10 year and he didn’t recommend.

By the beginning of May, Holliday was once again talking about his investments in Nashville. But at the end of the month, stress seemed to mount as Holliday posted a private text message and challenged the sender to a fight.

As Holliday’s house of cards was ready to collapse, his Nashville investment, Twisted Foods, was set to have its grand opening. Holliday made his last unlawful transfer from the county account on June 24 for $14,678.27. The owner and operator of Twisted Foods, Rose Hankins, says she was a victim of Holliday’s deceptive practices, as well.

  1. Its very strange that a clerk could steal so much money and no one was aware, this must go deeper or else the whole county needs a shake down. I am sure he can make bond after all its less than 10% of what he is accused of taking.

  2. POS. I hope he loses everything. All the real estate investments, the house, the escalade, the tahoe. I hope he ends up in a trailer with a chevette and living on Alpo.
