More Robin Carnahan Bias

August 27th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

From Equality Talk blog:

What Secretary of State has time, or finds it appropriate, to thank the media and advocates on one side of an issue for their support during pending litigation? I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it before, but this session of mutual self-gratification is reported by American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA) blog on the issue. It begins with AAAA’s letter to the editor.

Robin Carnahan apparently wrote back to her allies:

“Dear Dr. Ethridge:

I read with interest your recent letter to the Kansas City Star regarding the lawsuit over ballot summary language for a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban affirmative action programs.

As Missouri’s Secretary of State, it is my job to provide the voters of Missouri with ballot language that is fair, impartial and complies with the law. This is a job I take very seriously because Missourians deserve to be able to clearly understand what they are voting on, regardless of the issue.

I do appreciate your support, and please rest assured I will continue to perform my duties as Missouri’s Secretary of State fairly and in accordance with the law.

Best regards,

Sincerely yours,

Robin Carnahan
Secretary of State”

I’ve never seen such audacity during pending litigation. I mean letters to the editor are one thing – but this self-congratulatory arrogance rises to a new level. Read more…
