Speaker Tim Jones came to La Plata and spoke to a group of about 50 concerned citizens regarding the Department of Revenue scandal. Speaker Jones informed us about what our legislators are doing find out who all are responsible and hold them accountable, where Missouri citizens private information was released to and for what reason, as well as the legislation being passed to further protect the 2nd Amendment rights and privacy of Missouri Citizens.
When asked what we can do, Speaker Jones emphasised the need for private citizens to keep the pressure on Governor Nixon and Attorney General Koster. Our laws have been violated, our privacy has been breached. We want answers! Over the past two weeks Speaker Jones has made several attempts to contact AG Koster with zero response. "Attorney General Koster has been deafeningly silent." All the efforts of our legislators need to be backed by private citizens. We were told that the involvement of the private citizens is powerful and we should keep in mind that it was a single private citizen who shined the light on and exposed this scandal.

In continuing news....
Governor Jay Nixon "will be served with a subpoena to appear for a deposition on May 3 at the Stoddard County courthouse to give sworn testimony in the case."
Excellent article: http://themissouritimes.com/2574/nixon-served-with-subpoena-to-appear-for-dor-deposition/
Just an FYI...
Article VII Section 1 of the Missouri State Constitution regarding Public Officers states:
"All elective executive officials of the state.... shall be liable to impeachment for crimes, misconduct, habitual drunkenness, willful neglect of duty, corruption in office, incompetency, or any offense involving moral turpitude or oppression in office."

MO Sheriffs Not Buying Excuses In CCW Leak
U.S. Congressman Blaine Leutkemeyer has been actively seeking questions on the federal level:
He had a meeting with Social Security Administration Inspector General Patrick O’Carroll, Jr.
"[S]tate agencies ultimately provided a full list of Missourians holding concealed carry permits that O’Carroll said was never accessed or shared by the federal agency and ultimately the information was destroyed."
I personally don't believe that for a minute, but Congressman Leutkemeyer apparently does:
Congressman Leutkemeyer also met with a top official from the BATF who said,
"the agency did not play a role in requesting private information from the state of Missouri about individuals holding concealed carry weapons licenses"
Again, I don't believe him, based on the correspondence requesting the lists along with not trusting our federal government under this administration.
When asked how our U.S. Representative, Congressman Sam Graves is responding to this scandal and I was directed to last weeks newsletter:
Congressman Graves references an excellent article:
"This is but one fear that the public — not just Republicans — has when it comes to the use of personal data."
People, let's start calling this what it really is, Federal Identity Theft!! They illegally took private information from Missouri citizens.
And last but not least, please listen to Senator Brian Nieves as he expresses his anger (and mine) to Senator Schaffer about this outrageous betrayal by the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and Attorney General Christopher Koster against the citizens of Missouri.
