State Senator Who Told Gov 'F*ck You' Says She Was Tear Gassed in Ferguson
Time for emergency elections?Well let me tell you, I represent my constituents, not Governor Nixon. So I need to tell you this, he has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him or when he’s running for office. And because he has been outside of this community...he has still yet to come to ground zero...He has been in Florissant, he has been in Normandy. But he has not spoken to the people who are the victims of this crisis that we are dealing with now. And that is why I have called him a coward. The reason why I used profane language is because he allowed us to get tear gassed for three days. I am one of the senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting tear gassed and shot at.
