You might have read about how Missouri Governor Jay Nixon snubbed President Ditherton Wiggleroom. If not, here’s the report from St. Louis station KMOX:
Missouri’s governor on Monday ordered the National Guard to a St. Louis suburb convulsed by protests over the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen, and he reportedly did so without first telling the White House.
Gov. Jay Nixon said the National Guard would help “in restoring peace and order” to Ferguson, where protests over the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white police officer entered their second week. Police said they acted Sunday night in response to gunfire, looting, vandalism and protesters who hurled Molotov cocktails.
“These violent acts are a disservice to the family of Michael Brown and his memory and to the people of this community who yearn for justice to be served and to feel safe in their own homes,” Nixon said in a statement. [Emphaisis added]
What you might not have read, because it wasn’t in the report, is that Nixon is a Democrat.
