Sarah Steelman was quick to jump on Claire McCaskill and her plane problems, but it appears the former state treasurer has some problems of her own.
The Missouri Democratic Party is jumping all over Steelman after the discovery that four years worth of records from her time as state treasurer are missing:
Most of the documents — sent emails, schedules and travel information, among other content — are required by state law to be preserved in the state archive.
“Where are the documents? Either Sarah Steelman or the national Republican establishment that is propping up her candidacy need to answer that question,” Matt Canter, spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “It’s hypocrisy of the highest degree. Steelman flatters herself as a champion for open records laws and even bragged to the press about the procedures she established to maintain records for the public. Now, we discover that most of these key records are gone.”
