Missourians Protest Josh Hawley, Demand Return of Greitens’ $50,000

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Today, protesters gathered outside Josh Hawley’s event in Joplin to protest the Attorney General turning a blind eye to the Governor’s use of a charity donor list for over a year, deciding to investigate only when the Governor became too politically toxic, and giving the St. Louis Circuit Attorney less than four days to file charges. Protestors also demanded that Hawley return the $50,000 in contributions he received from Greitens during the 2016 campaign.

“Since Josh Hawley became Attorney General 16 months ago, corruption in Jefferson City has never seemed worse. Hawley’s refusal to investigate The Mission Continues donor list until the Governor became politically toxic — and his refusal to return the $50,000 in contributions Greitens gave him last cycle — is yet another clear example of how he will always put his personal political ambitions before his duty to the people of Missouri.”
