Nixon disgusted with Blunt handling of Ferrell matter

In his first public statement concerning the sexual harassment scandal surrounding former Agriculture Director Fred Ferrell, Attorney General Jay Nixon said Governor Matt Blunt's handling of the matter "disgusted" him:

"The record here is very, very clear. We're talking about a man (Ferrell) who did not deserve continued employment with the state." Nixon said Ferrell should have been fired in May, when the complaint was first filed.
