In his latest column, Sen. Gary Nodler attacks Attorney General Jay Nixon for Nixon's Open Meetings lawsuit against MOHELA's Board of Directors.
For something that he describes as a "distraction," Nodler appears to be venting a considerable amount of anger. My favorite part of the senator's column comes when he writes, "The decision to sell MOHELA has been resoundingly supported by those who have stakes in the issue — among them the state’s leaders in higher education, MOHELA’s executive director and the director of the Department of Economic Development."
Apparently, the senator does not consider the students who stand to lose the most by this proposed sale to have any stake in the issue. Of course, anyone who opposes the sale can always send a letter to Nodler's Higher Education Committee.
