Mo. Gov. Nixon caught red-handed in concealed carry permit holder list leak scandal

Jay Nixon Missouri governorNot only has Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon now admitted that he lied about submitting the names of concealed carry license holders to the federal government, but there’s a paper trail to boot.

New evidence proves that Nixon, a Democrat, had not only ordered his administration to submit the lists, but that DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano personally thanked him for doing so in a letter.

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) thanks you for your State’s efforts in improving security standards for state-issued drivers license’s and identification cards,” the letter reads.

Nixon is set to testify in a public hearing about the violation Friday, and the Missouri State Senate filed a remonstrance against him:

“This is a Senate Remonstrance against the Governor for the release by the Department of Revenue and the Department of Public Safety of personal protected information which has been publicly admitted by the departments.”

The Missouri governor had previously announced that the Show-Me state would “no longer scan or retain” concealed-carry weapon certificates, following a public outcry after it was discovered that the state had been submitting the names of concealed carry weapons to the federal government.

“Gov. Jay Nixon announced today that the Department of Revenue will no longer scan or retain certificates of qualification for Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) endorsements,” read a press release issued by the governor’s office last month. ”It has been determined that the scanning and retention of concealed carry certificates are not essential to the integrity of the license issuance process,” Gov. Nixon said. “We will continue to work with policymakers to ensure the security and privacy of our license issuance process.”

Previously Nixon had been adamant that the state had not been sending documents ”to some federal government magic database somewhere to do something.” Nixon’s Department of Revenue Director, Brian Long, was also forced to resign as a result of the scandal.

    If there were ever a case that warranted impeachment of a government official, it’s this one. What are you waiting for Missouri?

  2. Bo says:

    Another above the law democrat that doesn’t care for the personal records of his people. Another democrat out to remove of of all our guns by hook or crook. So sad it has come to this. Impeach this lier and remove him before his sadistic ways to remove us of our constitutional rights. Get them out. He has committed a crime against America. And lied about it. Now I know why tigers eat thier young.

  3. Bo says:

    We need a state prison and federal prison or Gitmo to place all our politicians after serving in office. Manditory 5 years each just to cover what we didn’t catch them doing.

    1. StevenAdair says:

      That doesn’t seem like such a bright idea to me. Where would you propose is a better place for you to live? No politicians, no government at all?

      1. Bo says:

        As far as me looking for a new place to live after my sons and I have given over 35 years defending this country I’m not going any where. However, I am going to complain write letters and complain for the way this country is heading. The corruption with no consequences for politicians that are not caught and the light sentences for those who are is just shameful. Government working feverishly to strip us of our constitutional rights. We don’t have a government working for we the people, they are working for them and their own personal gains. Obama was right we need change, a change and restructure of our government. We need more laws that apply to our government not to we the people. They go in government and always come out richer than they went in. Our government is broken and needs severe repair. For goodness sakes open your eyes and wake up. Corruption is running rampant.

        1. StevenAdair says:

          Okay Bo, thanks for the response, I wish you were my neighbor.

  4. Larry says:

    now he needs to be arrested and tried for perjury and violating his states laws.

  5. Tom says:

    Yes, impeach now! He is able to be impeached because he is not black so it cannot be called racist if they do.

    1. Bo says:

      Obama and holder isn’t black either. They are multiracial. But they will claim to be if it helps thier cause. One thing they are however are liars.

      1. Tom says:

        Well when you are incompetent at best and have no defense for how you are actively destroying our country, you do as they do in the ghetto and say, you just pickin on me because I’m black. Holder can definitely use the black card and the special needs card because he sure is a slow baby.

        1. Bo says:

          Well Obama doesn’t deserve the title of 1st black president. Maybe 1st Muslim president or 1st incompetent president or party your butt off while America falls apart president. He definitely has no backbone great at lying and doing nothing but destroying America. But wait, there is the cell phone for my brothers , thanks for voting and donations cell firm company’s. can this country last 3 more years.

  6. Bo says:

    Why does congress exempt themselves from a lot of the laws they pass. None of them will have Obama care only us. Congress and senate can draw a military retirement, a civil service retirement, and social security plus many other benefits not available to Us. How are we going to control this type of behavior from an out of control system. All you hear is more taxes hidden taxes some of your government doesn’t even pay taxes. You try it and you go to jail and they take everything from you. Obama’s people don’t even receive oral admonishment. How long are you going to put up with this behavior. Because we the people aren’t anyone, we don’t run this country the government does. You have no say. How long before you are told all the elections are rigged. Your vote doesn’t mean anything. How about none of them can stay in office for more than 8 years period. That’s a start to control this mess.

    1. Tom says:

      If everyone stopped paying taxes and stopped paying their mortgage, what do you think would happen? We the people have the power but no one has the intestinal fortitude to empower themselves. I just stopped paying my mortgage because my bank does not need my money, they were bailed out by my tax money already. Who’s with me… chirp chirp… Nobody?

      1. Bo says:

        I did they finally took the house. Good luck my friend. It’s gonna take more than two of us. Corrupt law firm ruined my credit and stole my money. Not one attorney would take case to sue him. Attorney general said good luck you’ll never get anything back. Image that. Down right misrepresentation and theft and my family suffer. Happy horse shit. Well I wish you luck.

  7. R, E (BUD) PREWITT, SR. says:

    IMPEACH THIS GOVERNER HE IS JUST LIKE obama. REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE. NOW. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE OUR RIGHTS.

    1. Bo says:

      Impeach him show the government we sill run this country.

  8. James Nooner says:

    What ever happened to traitor’s at midnight? I believe that the good governor needs to be wisked out of office, by impeachment of course, at midnight just like Van Jones resignation, at midnight of course just to symbolize the Benedict Arnold that Governor Nixon is. Of course since he is a Democrat then he will be protected by the unseen powers that be.

  9. JOe says:

    Time to take back your state. Then, go NO CHL needed for carry to make the list pointless.
