Remember that load of crap Governor Jay Nixon (D-Mizzurah) spewed when news broke that his Department of Revenue was sending CCW holders’ personal data to DHS? He was very reassuring, letting Show Me Staters know that no one in his administration was engaged in a program to rat out concealed carriers. Or as he put it so eloquently, “There are no documents being sent to some federal government magic database somewhere to do something.” Except there was, as became clear when his Director of Revenue fessed up. And so did the head of the Highway Patrol. Still, Jay did the full Sgt. Schultz, professing that he knew nossing, nossing about the blatant violation of state law. Except, as it happens, he did . . .
As Dana Loesch is reporting at redstate.com, Nixy signed the Missouri law himself that prohibited compliance with the federal REAL ID Act. And when his own DOR thumbed its nose at the law and sent Missourians’ personal information to Washington anyway, he got a big fat metaphorical smooch for laying down and rolling over from DHS top dog(gette) Janet Napolitano.
Ruh roh. Hard to claim that no one was sending prohibited information to the feds when he’d already been scratched behind the ears — in writing — for, well, sending prohibited information to the feds.
But hold on, there’s good news! The Gov was already scheduled to testify in a public hearing this Friday. Which should give some legislators a chance to ask him when he stopped
beating his wife lying to Missourians. If he ever did. This is about the only thing that could make me regret being at the NRA Meeting on Friday. Buckle your seatbelts, Missourians. This could get interesting. [h/t DrVino]
