Nodler: We can't have crooks in politics

The Senate Financial and Governmental Organizations Committee held a hearing on a bill from Sen. Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, which would prevent felons from holding elected office:

I just think we shouldn't have felons holding public office. I think that's really the general intent of the legislation, and I think the current law is just not carefully crafted," Sen. Nodler said.

Nodler did not comment on what should be done with the crooks who have been lucky enough to avoid a criminal record. This certainly sounds like the kind of critical legislation for which we went Nodler to Jefferson City.
