Governor Of MO Condemns Obama’s Goon Squads

Via Gateway Pundit:

MO Governor Matt Blunt has issued a statement concerning the Missouri prosecutors who announced this week that they would threaten and prosecute critics of Barack Obama:

“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.”

Good on ‘im.

    Gov Blunt is [b]abusing his authority[/b] as Governor. Obama has caught up with McCain in the Missouri polls.

    [b]On Their Own Time – NOT Illegal[/b]

    Obama has caught up with McCain in the polls.

    Blunt said he has [b]exposed [i]plans[/i][/b]. He does not site [b]any[/b] incident of actual treats to anyone.

    Frank Donatelli, deputy chairman of the Republican National Committee:

    [quote]In a telephone interview with the News-Leader, Donatelli [b]admitted[/b] the Democratic prosecutors “[b]haven’t specifically said[/b]” they would use their prosecutorial powers on Obama’s behalf.”[/quote]

    I watched the video. There was [b]no statement[/b] from the interviewed individuals to indicate they planned to doing anything in their [b]official capacity of enforcing laws.[/b]

    Matt Blunt is a [b]sleaze[/b] that is leaving office because [b]Missourians would never reelect him[/b]. He is [b]looking for a job[/b] in the McCain administration.

    St. Louis Newspaper:

    [b]McCain-Obama battle over Missouri “Truth Squad”[/b]

    [quote](As an aside, please note that [b][i]both[/i] sides[/b] have “[b]Truth Squads[/b]” in numerous states, under numerous titles. [b]McCain’s[/b] campaign has an Honest and Open Election Committee, whose Missouri members include former Sen. John Danforth and U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, and another state McCain group monitoring any Democratic jabs at Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.)

    Later, [b][i]state[/i] communications director[/b] Debbie Mesloh issued a statement that called it “[b]the height of absurdity[/b]” for the GOP to contend that the Obama squad planned to go to court or jail critics.

    She contended that [b]Blunt, Donatelli,[/b] et al are out “[b]to deceive voters[/b] about the role of respected Missourians across the state who want to see this election be about the truth, not false attacks like the ones we’ve seen today.

    “Barack Obama’s Truth Squad is comprised of members of the community who – [b]on their own time[/b] – are dedicated to raising the level of discourse in this campaign…,” she added.

    By the way, a quick surf of the Internet found a [b]McCain Truth Squad[/b] in New Hampshire, formed last January, that included [b]several public officials with [i]prosecutorial powers[/i], including the state attorney general[/b].[/quote]

    Well, what do you know, Jim, the spinning and backtracking has begun in earnest, hasn’t it?

    Obama campaign cracks down on misleading TV ads

    September 23rd, 2008

    The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.

    Now we hear:

    But the KMOV reporter who first reported about two St. Louis County prosecutors joining the truth squad says “in the retelling of the story, it got out of control.”

    “If they think a group has put out a misleading ad, they’re basically going to call a press conference and say the ad is misleading,” reporter John Mills told the News-Leader on Sunday. “I’m sure the Republicans would do the same thing.”

    Wrong.

    And McCain doesn’t have his own “truth squad”.

    Any idea why prosecuting attorneys would be part of “basically” calling a press conference on Obama’s behalf? Are they on Obama’s payroll, or what? Are these prosecuting Attorneys doing this for free?

    Does this pass any kind of smell test?

    Nope.

    Of course they do, as well they should.

    That is much different than mobilizing teams of prosecuting attorneys throughout a state to chill dissent, as the report clearly attested.
