Let The Desperation Begin! Hannibal Courier-Post Calls for Security for McCaskill

Apparently Claire’s moderate charade is not resonating back home. Time to go to the playbook and bring out the fear card:

The last two times U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill has come to the Hannibal area, the amount of personal protection offered to the Senator has been less than one would have expected, considering the fact that U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot during a meeting with constituents in Arizona less than one year ago. Could the same thing happen in rural Missouri that happened in Tucson?

While we shudder to think of that possibility, security is on our minds as the election season heats up. Shouldn’t a high-ranking U.S. Senator be afforded the same protection as the governor, who is accompanied by the Missouri State Highway Patrol when he visits the region? Read more…

Has there been any specific threats against Sen. McCaskill? Wasn’t the Arizona shooter  well known to Rep. Gifford’s office?

    1. The shooter of giffords was a crazy. Is this security concern just another political ploy to spend more money? I think so. If there have been no specific threats then she deserves the same protection as any other citizen. Then on the other hand if she is so paranoid and given her bankbook that she has, then she can pay for it herself.

    While we are on the subject of claire mccaskill, why is she not being grilled by the press concerning her yea vote to allow king barak I and the Military to arrest ME or any other American citizen without charge, detain indefinately and taken to any detention facility in the world that they choose, including Gitmo! I call her oath breaker and traitor and as far as I am concerned she should be arrested and tried for high treason, along with the other 85 senators that voted for it.
