Republican Senator Jason Crowell made it very clear during Tuesday's four hour filibuster that he had no problem ignoring Governor Jay Nixon.
Wrap: Crowell's animated antics sparked a special session debate.
The Senator expressed his opposition of Nixon's legislative maneuvering.
|Description: The governor's not my dad and I don't live under his rules. This is crazy! This is unbelievable! We have never had a governor try to tell on such a micro-level what the senate can do on such a variety of topics.|
Crowell stressed democracy cannot be micromanaged and it's repugnant to the state's ideals to do so.
He said he was worried the governor's actions might turn Missouri into a monarchy.
