Quote of the Day: Bindbuetel: “Let Me be Very Clear, I Made the Decision”

January 7th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

Former Department of Natural Resources deputy director Joe Bindbuetel officially fell on the sword yesterday. Bindbuetel told the Senate Environment Committee that he alone made the decision to withold information from the public that the lake was contaminated with dangerous levels of E.Coli. It’s commendable that he’s taken responsibility for his role in this scandal, but when are Cardetti and Mazur going to step up to the plate and join Mr. Bindbuetel as  former state employees?

“Jay Nixon has absolutely no shame. Nixon has allowed members of his staff who intentionally mislead the press and the public to keep their jobs; he has rewarded his donors with the state’s most lucrative fee offices; and he has appointed his ethically-challenged friends to state boards and commissions. By promoting someone who attempted to bribe lawmakers to further his agenda, Nixon is continuing his pattern of rewarding his staff for their corrupt behavior.” — Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party.
