Under cover of darkness on October 25, 2007, (a Thursday) Jay Nixon trades in his taxpayer-financed vehicle he illegally used for campaign events for a private plane

JEFFERSON CITY _ Proving once again why he can’t be trusted to keep his word to Missourians, Jay Nixon’s campaign event on health care in Springfield today is at odds with this comment to the Dexter Daily Statesman on November 22, 2005: “I’ll do all my political work on the weekends and I’ll be your attorney general during the week.”

Last time Missourians checked, Friday is considered part of the work week.

Nixon, who already has been busted for illegally using a state car for political purposes and doing so on a work day on several occasions, held a POLITICAL health care forum on a weekday despite his pledge. And it’s a good guess that Nixon won’t be discussing his defense in court of Medicaid cuts instituted in 2002 and 2003 by Bob Holden.

“Jay Nixon is not a man of his word because he is campaigning during the week which is something he promised Missourians he would not do. Not only is Nixon breaking his promise, but he is also failing to do the job Missouri taxpayers are paying him to do,” said Paul Sloca, communications director for the Missouri Republican Party. “This kind of political grandstanding cannot hide the fact that Jay Nixon defended Bob Holden’s Medicaid cuts, which effectively destroys any sincerity Nixon might feel he has on this issue.”
