Missouri House panel concludes impeachment hearing
Question of the Day
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Republican-led Missouri House panel has wrapped up a hearing on measures seeking to impeach Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon without voting on the proposals.
One of two resolutions considered Wednesday criticizes the governor for the amount of time he took to call elections to fill legislative vacancies. The other would impeach Nixon for refusing to fire officials involved with the Revenue Department’s decision last year to scan driver’s license applicants’ personal documents into a computer system.
Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Stanley Cox says he isn’t sure if the panel will vote on the measures before lawmakers adjourn May 16. The committee considered an additional impeachment resolution last week citing Nixon’s decision to let legally married same-sex couples file joint tax returns in Missouri.
Nixon called the hearings “some sort of show.”
