Missouri Governor targets individual over MIAC probing.Submitted by Mohusk on Fri, 03/27/2009 - 10:44
A quick update: Just because Governor Nixon has done a flip-flop on the MIAC report and is now claiming he didn't approve it after a week of "fully supporting" it - and the State Police retracted the document itself, now that it is already in every state and fusion center - that is not the end. The Liberty Restoration Project is contintuing our quest for the documentation and source of the defamation document. (We already know quite a bit, but we want them to admit it). The Governor and State Police have broken the Sunshine Law and now we have to go through the slow, painful process of filing with the Attorney General. We have accomplished a lot and I will be asking for "thank you" letters soon. But, last week did have some bad results.....
This is a letter from Josh Carter, a St. Louis Liberty stallworth.

To whom it may concern:
Attached you will find a letter from me to Governor Jay Nixon. In that letter, I ask Governor Nixon to leave me and my friends alone.
Here is what happened: I filed a Sunshine Request with Nixon on the past Monday, March 23rd at about 10 am. My Sunshine Request stemmed from my concern with Nixon over his MIAC "report" and over his videocamera in his office.
By 4 pm on this past Monday, members of law enforcement were showing up at my friends' homes and asking all kinds of questions about me, about my beliefs, about my habits. I do not think that this is a coincidence that this started right after my request. It has continued until today - so far at least 7 friends or people I know have been visited by law enforcement.
To be clear, I am the kind of person that Nixon's MIAC profiled: I am a Ron Paul supporter and I have opposed the exansion of the Federal Reserve. And I am generaly conservative. Also, I am sure you know that I am a member of the Missouri Republican Party State Committee. It seems obvious to me that since My Sunshine Request identified my concern about Nixon's MIAC "report" that profiled people like me that I may be targetted.
In America, a "report" like Nixon's MIAC report should not be allowed. Nor should my friends be hassled by cops and investigators about me and who I am.
I have retained a lawyer and spoken to my elected officials. I will not take this kind of abuse lying down.
I am sending this to local press and public officials to try to get help in addressing this matter.
Josh has had some interviews with local papers and hopefully we can get some internet noise. Stay tuned....
