If .@MissouriGOP .@GOP wants TP prevent electoral disaster in our state .@Monetti4Senate is their only choice. Josh Hawley has violated the trust of Governor .@EricGreitens and President .@realDonaldTrump voters.
Josh Hawley has fallen short in his duties as Missouri AG and is a mediocre, uninspiring US Senate Candidate. Iโ€™m a lifelong Republican. As a kid in Junior High I made speeches in school for assignments in favor of President Reagan.
Hawley has failed in his legal efforts to find something to turn Governor .@EricGreitens out of office. Hawley has made public statements that #moleg ought to impeach the Governor. That demonstrates extremely poor judgment.

Delighted to see the Missouri General Assembly pass both #SB819 and #SB800! We worked hard last year to develop many of these measures and to collaborate with #moleg to pass them. Together, they do a LOT for foster care & adoption in Missouri. Here's a (partial) rundown: /1
Every Missouri child should be in a safe, stable, loving home. Provisions in SB819 & SB800 protect kids from abuse/neglect; support foster parents caring for kids in crisis; make MO a great state for adoption; & recognize the God-given potential of MO's foster children. /2
These bills retain data from child abuse/neglect reports that investigators use to protect kids; improve information-sharing across state lines where appropriate; strengthen provisions to terminate parental rights in cases of sexual abuse. /3

My letter in todayโ€™s @NewsTribune (thread)
Dear Editor:
I write regarding the editors' May 2 letter on the right to protest. This is the kind of poorly thought out opinion that comes of not having a diverse editorial board. /1
You literally just published an article last week pointing out that Missouri leads the nation in homicides committed upon black people and has done so for seven of the last 10 years. /2
Even so, you advocate for "[drawing] the line at protests that could endanger the public." What about the public that is endangered every single day and has been for centuries? /3

For once in Missouri, we have a nearly united legislature, with both parties calling on Greitens to go.

Instead, Greitens is targeting the MO Attorney General and ignoring the will of representatives and citizens alike. He is a tyrant and he must be held accountable. #MOleg
What happens in Missouri often anticipates the political climate of the US. We are still the bellwether state, in the worst possible way.

Greitens is a microcosm of Trump and reflects a broader breakdown of institutions and accountability. The shamelessness should alarm you.
Here's a new essay from my book, "The View From Flyover Country", on Missouri as "a model of low-key autocracy". People who say "It can't happen here" fail to realize it happens in Missouri all the time.
