Steele Says Reps are Bringing Up Old Issues

Judge Russell Steele says two state reps are rehashing politics.

Judge Steele said in a statement on Thursday that Representatives Zack Wyatt and Craig Redmond are using the quote — “same old allegations that were raised by my political opponents in an attempt to defeat me in my last election in 2006.” Steele said then, voters and the Commission on Retirement, Removal and Discipline of Judges rejected the allegations. That’s the body that Wyatt wanted to investigate charges against Steele. The judge said the commission had already found the allegations against him unfounded. He said Redmond and Wyatt are using the Missouri House to further their own agenda, instead of the people’s business. Steele called it blatant abuse of the General Assembly.
