What is it with Missouri? Extortionist governors, seditious Senators, child abusing state legislators, and now gun-toting, bee-killing ex-yuppies

Mark McCloskey — the gun-toting St. Louis attorney who drew headlines last year for brandishing an assault rifle at Black Lives Matter protesters — says he’s looking at running for Missouri’s open Senate seat.
“I can confirm that it’s a consideration, yes,” McCloskey said in a brief interview on Tuesday evening. McCloskey, a wealthy personal-injury lawyer, said that he had no timeline for making a decision about whether to enter the race for the seat from which Republican Sen. Roy Blunt is retiring. This past weekend, McCloskey spoke at a Jackson County GOP dinner, which also drew former Gov. Eric Greitens and state Attorney General Eric Schmitt, both of whom have announced their candidacies.
The couple became a cause célèbre for conservatives and won the support of then-President Donald Trump, who used the incident to advance a central theme of his reelection campaign — that far-left activists were overrunning upscale communities. Trump retweeted video footage of the incident and defended the couple in a televised interview, saying it was “disgraceful” they were facing legal action.www.politico.com/…
If Greitens wins the Missouri senate seat and Gaetz hasn’t been sentenced yet 2023 could see the beginning of the bicameral revenge porn caucus.

It's almost as if Josh Hawley knew exactly who he was catering to when he spoke out against certifying the election and spreading misinformation. His campaign made money off a deadly insurrection, and we will never forget that. https://t.co/nys9vlq7zv
