Ed Martin for Missouri’s Attorney General

      Chris Koster is running for re-election as Missouri’s Attorney General against Ed Martin. Koster ran an ad wherein he claims to have prosecuted over 100 murder cases, and won thousands of convictions. Yet, according to the US Census Bureau there were only 16 murders during the ten years he was the Cass County Prosecutor. 

       In another misleading ad Koster takes credit for prosecuting the murderer of a trooper and getting a death sentence conviction. In reality, it was Koster’s assistant prosecutor Kevin Zoellner who attended the trial and argued the case before the jury, not Koster. The ad also states Koster is all prosecutor, no politics; when in essence Koster is a political opportunist, who will do whatever is necessary to stay in power, including compromising principles. Koster at one time was a Republican; however, in 2007 Koster stuck his finger in the air to see which way the political winds were shifting and switched to the Democrat party.  Koster takes credit for something he really does not do, just like Barack Hussein Obama, who took and takes credit for “getting/killing” Osama bin Laden. You can not trust a man who does not stand on principles and lies about his record and accomplishments for political gain, as Koster does. Koster has no integrity and should not be Missouri’s Attorney General.

      The Missouri attorney general's job is to act as the state's lawyer, enforcing state law, representing state officials in legal disputes and defending state statutes in court and more importantly to represent the people against an overreaching Federal Government. Something Koster is reluctant to do, possibly because Koster is enamored with Obama and was giddy when I overheard him at a fundraiser describe his meeting Obama in the Oval Office. When Koster is so star struck by the president, you can not rely on him as the chief law enforcement officer in the state to uphold the will of the people and fight against an overreaching Federal Government.

       The people of Missouri overwhelmingly voted against The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka. Obamacare when they voted 71.1% for the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act, Proposition C. Proposition C aimed to block the implementation of Obamacare on the state and yet, Koster did not act to support the will of the people against an overreaching federal government. Koster also did not join the 26 other states in fighting Obamacare. It was only late in the game that Koster wrote a brief to the Supreme Court on Obamacare. Again, he did it for political expediency because of the challenge by Ed Martin for his job. Too little, too late.

        Ed Martin is a true conservative and is concerned with the direction this country is headed and he wants to do something about it by running for office. Ed is running for MO Attorney General and he deserves our support. The Democrat/Statist’s policies and rhetoric are detrimental to this country putting this country in dire straights. There is much work to be done to get America back on track. It starts with electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the people’s representative.
