UNION ACTIVIST FILES FRIVILOUS COMPLAINT
Greene Countians Against Question 1 responded to the frivilous ethics complaint filed with the Missouri’s Ethics Commission by an out-of-town left-wing union activist by the name of Eric Moore. Mr. Moore’s frivilous complaint claims that the coalition’s Treasurer, Larry Russell, did not file his organization’s paperwork on time. It is a frivilous complaint that asserts that Russell should have filed the Committee paperwok on October 5, 2008. Since October 5th was a Sunday, the deadline for filing was, of course, Monday, October 6th.
Russell filed the appropriate documents with the County Clerk and Ethics Commission in both Greene County and Jefferson City. Greene Countians Against Question 1 had even confirmed on Friday, October 3, 2008 that October 6th was the deadline.
“We are witnessing an example of how low trial attorneys and their left-wing union allies will stoop when their control over government is threatened. This complaint by liberal trial attorneys is completely without merit and is frivilous. It is designed to malign our Committee, to distract the public, and we will seek action by the Missouri Ethics Commission and/or local prosecutors against Mr. Moore for abusing the system like this. More importantly, we are confident that our voices and those of Greene County will not be silenced,” stated Russell.
Eric D. Moore is an employee of the left-wing union AFSCME 72 based in Jefferson City. Mr. Moore is also an elected official; he is mayor of Clarksburg in Moniteau County, a county that elects its judges. Mr. Moore appears to be using his union office to attack Greene Countians as the phone numbers, address, email, and notary appear to be the Jefferson City offices of AFSCME. This represents activity that may be illegal under state or federal law.
In a message directly to Mr. Moore, Larry Russell said: “Greeen Countians are deeply offended that out-of-town union activists and elected officials like you are trying to tell us what we can and cannot say. Mr. Moore, work on your own community or your union’s efforts to elect Barack Obama and other liberals. Please leave us alone in Greene County, Mr. Moore.”
