Sen. Josh Hawley subpoenaed in Sunshine Law case

Source: Columbia Missourian

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been subpoenaed in a case involving possible violations of Missouri's public records law when he served as the state's Attorney General.

The subpoena came from Missouri's 19th Circuit Court in Cole County. Hawley is ordered to give depositions and bring all documents and notes involving his campaign donors, consultants and state employees.

The subpoena was issued after a former assistant attorney general of Missouri, Elad Gross, began investigating anonymous political donations, or "dark money," in Missouri in 2017. According to a news release from Gross, who has announced he is running for attorney general in 2020 as a Democrat, when the nonprofit, A New Missouri, ignored multiple requests for records, he filed a lawsuit arguing that the organization had to release its records to the public.

Gross's lawsuit was dismissed, but he is appealing. He also filed a request for public records under Missouri's Sunshine Law in August 2018. The request, directed to Gov. Mike Parson, asked for records of communication between former Gov. Eric Greitens' office and 27 groups or individuals identified in Gross's dark money investigation.

1. What is Hawley hiding? His campaign has been rife w/ discrepancies, and his office in MO ...

during his stint as the AG of MO, the AG's office was literally occupied by his campaign/those interests that wanted him to run for the Senate office, to ensure that his office cherry picked those relevant issues that made him look good to voters, all while probably ignoring other issues that as the AG of MO, he should have been dealing with them instead of ignoring them or simply sidestepping them, all in pursuit of his Senate seat. In short, people were literally camped out in his office making decisions for MO voters.
