Governor Matt Blunt of Missouri responding to Obama Goose-steppers:

"JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

Well there is more. I'm told that the DOJ will be looking into (most likely referring to the FBI) this as a possible civil rights violation as well as violation of free speech. Specifically St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, could face individual jeopardy for misuse of office.

Actually Governor Blunt himself could order his State Attorney to open an investigation.

Remember it was the democrats that accused President Bush of politicizing the Justice Department and this is far beyond that. Most likely the announcement of the DOJ will come this week.

UPDATE: STACLU with more.

    Let's hope that the FBI takes this up. It's sickening that O! and his comrades would resort to a perversion of Law enforcement, in addition to the electronic means that their ideological brownshirts employ, in order to shout doen and intimidate their political opponents.

    And remember that this is all brought to you by the most tolerant, ethical, law abiding, inclusive,and transparent, political movement-EVAH !

    If the roles in this were reversed instead of silence we're hearing from the left, and their fifth column sycophants in the MSM; there would be Shock !, Outrage !, calls for civil right and hate crime investigations, as well as branding anyone involved as RAAAAAAAAACISTS !!!

    It's just another example of the "by any means necessary" mentality of the Democrats this year as well as the duplicity and Hypocrisy of the MSM...

    Think of who OBAMA'S handlers are: Soros, Brzezinski, both communists with big money.

    When will the American people wake up and realize this guy is nothing more than Goebbells in a better looking suit.

    Against the 1st amendment and 2nd amendments. If he's elected, how long before he attempts to rid us of our constitutional rights?
