Ashcroft Says He’s Complying With Law By Releasing Voter Data

Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft is taking issue with Senator McCaskill and his predecessor Jason Kander over their criticism of his decision to release voter data to the Trump Adminstration. In an email to supporters last weeek, Ashcroft claims he is just following the law – just like two of his Democratic predecessors:

Now, Jason Kander has been joined by Senator McCaskill in attacking me for following Chapter 610 of the Missouri Revised Statutes that requires that I provide publicly available information upon request. See the law for yourself here.

The kicker? Jason Kander is attacking me for following the law and providing this data to the Trump Election Integrity Commission, after he fulfilled nearly 400 data requests during his four years as Missouri Secretary of State. That’s right. He is attacking me for doing something he did almost 400 times while in office. His predecessor, Robin Carnahan, fulfilled these requests more than 600 times.

His attacks are pure politics. They fit his agenda to pretend voter fraud exists and block efforts to fight fraud. Let me be clear about these requests: no voter preferences, political affiliations, or confidential information have or will be provided. The privacy of the voting booth is revered in this country, and it will remain so.

And Ashcroft goes on to say no identifying information was disclosed to the federal government.

Let me be clear about these requests: no voter preferences, political affiliations, or confidential information have or will be provided. The privacy of the voting booth is revered in this country, and it will remain so.

Video: FACT: NO Fire at West Lake Landfill

July 10th, 2017 by mopns_admin ·

Fact: There is no fire. A fire requires oxygen. There is a heat-producing chemical reaction — which causes waste to decompose more quickly than normal — occurring deep within the South Quarry of Bridgeton Landfill, where oxygen does not exist. The subsurface reaction is isolated, and it is being managed through a variety of containment efforts. The radiological material disposed at West Lake Landfill is very low-level. Any uranium of value was extracted, or leached, twice from the material before it was disposed of at the site. Various scientists and academics agree that the material is neither explosive nor vulnerable to heat.

June 29th, 2017 by mopns_admin ·

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver is taking aim at a pay day loan business specializing in business and consumer loans. That sets up a bit of a conflict with his cross state rival Rep. Lacy Clay, the hardworking and effective Congressman from St. Louis who is in the back pockets of the payday loan industry.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-Missouri) has launched an investigation on small business FinTech lending, which includes online companies with payday loan-like products for small businesses and individual consumers. “FinTech lending companies, also known as alternative small-business lending, are a fast-growing industry offering a new wave of innovation—and also pose many new risks,” Cleaver said in a news release.

“Senate Watchdog” McCaskill Has Secret Foundation AND Has Met Russian Ambassador

June 29th, 2017 by mopns_admin ·

Wow! Claire has a secret foundation that paid for a dinner at the Russian Ambassadors home

Washington Free Beacon:

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) used a personal foundation to pay for a dinner she attended at Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s Washington, D.C., residence. The senator had failed to disclose her role in the foundation until earlier this month. McCaskill came under fire this March after she told the Washington Post she never had a “call or meeting” with Kislyak even though she had publicly announced both a call and meeting with him. This week, CNN reported that McCaskill also attended a black-tie reception at Kislyak’s D.C. residence in November 2015.

McCaskill’s attendance at the dinner was accompanied by an $873 payment to the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation, where Kislyak serves on the board of directors as honorary chairman. The payment to Kislyak’s foundation was not made directly by McCaskill—it was made through a foundation, the Shepard Family Foundation, that she set up with her husband Joseph Shepard in 2013 but failed to disclose in filings to the Senate ethics committee until three weeks ago.

But wait, Claire said just a few months ago in a tweet that she’s never met the Russian ambassador:

I’ve been on the Armed Services Com for 10 years.No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of Foreign Rel Com.

— Claire McCaskill (@clairecmc) March 2, 2017

While four years ago she’s bragging about having a meeting with him:

Off to meeting w/Russian Ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all US adoptions,even those in process.
