Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

Gov. Mo.Gov.


Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.
“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.
“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

Wild Thing's comment.............

Thank you Governor Blunt! What a great statement, and I wish it would make the national news!

So those who would prosecute are themselves breaking the law and violating their oaths of office.

If Obama wins this election he would bring about atrocities that we have never imagined happening in our Country.

Also I went HERE and clilcked on the E-mail: Constituent Services and sent a note to thank him.

A little something about Gov. Blunt:

Governor Matt Blunt was born on November 20, 1970 in Strafford, Missouri. In 1993, he graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science in History. He went on to serve as an Engineering Officer aboard the USS JACK WILLIAMS (FFG-24) and as the Navigator and Administrative Officer on the USS PETERSON (DD-969). Lieutenant Commander Blunt was mobilized to Commander Naval Activities in the United Kingdom in October of 2001 in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. Gov. Blunt served six months in Operation Enduring Freedom and is the only statewide official in Missouri history called to active military duty in wartime. While in the Navy, he received four Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals as well as numerous other awards.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

I wish Obama was as concerned about fraudulant voter registrations from his ACORN buddies as he was about opponents political ads. Obama seems to think it is all right to make one sided laws and have local police agencies enforce those phony laws.

Good for Governor Blunt to speak out about this yet another disregard for The Constitution by socialist/Marxist Obama.

FINALLY a politician our 250 forfathers can be proud of! I really belive that a lot of Hillary's base will vote in McCain and this will make it possible for Hillary to run again in 2012. If this happens, McCain will win this election by a bigger margin than W did in 2000 and 2004!

Tom, yesss this Blunt is a good man. Thank goodness he did this.

Cheryl, this kind of thing should have gotten Obama in very serious trouble, big time. And if McCain had done this can you imagine? It would be non stop in the news.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 29, 2008 07:23 PM

Mark, I want them jailed too. Heck as captian of his campaign Obama should be at least fined, of course I prefer to have him thrown in jail as well.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 29, 2008 07:25 PM

Darth, I think so too. I even think there might be a chance secretly and not even telling each other maybe, heh heh Bill and Hillary will vote for McCain just because of how ticked at Obama they are.
