Check out the Columbia Tribune article about the Missouri National Guard leadership currently under investigation. Governor Nixon's appointed militia commander, Stephen Danner, and other senior staff members are apparently under DA investigation for fostering a toxic command climate and various legal and ethical violations.

Taxpayers want assurance that we have good stewards of our tax dollars including those spent by our military. Yes, we want dollars flowing into and staying in Missouri. And we want those dollars used effectively. The Columbia Tribune article seems to show that the Missouri Guard's Adjutant General may not be one of those good stewards. Governor Nixon may want to focus on cleaning up the house.
