Blog CCP: “Jeff Roe Breaks Missouri Supreme Court Rules”

We teach our kids to follow the rules. Jeff Roe must not have picked up on this idea.

Jeff Roe’s blog, the Source, “leaked” the names of folks who applied for the Supreme Court.

    Even more embarassing for Roe is that his initial announcement of who made the final panel for the Supreme Court nominees was WRONG. If you are going to break the rules and try to scoop the offical announcment, at least get it right.

    I can’t believe I am defending Jeff Roe, but as an old reporter, I considered my job to be to get the information to the people, no matter where it came from.

I have nothing good to say, however, about his judge pool.
