Despite national news reports now linking Congresswoman JoAnn Emerson to one of three congressional members confirmed to have been firing up a crowd of protesters that attacked minority members of Congress, Peter Kinder has moved himself closer to that crowd.
All weekend long, while the Missouri budget is all but paralyzed, Peter Kinder tweeted and tweeted about "obamacare", playing to the fears of the far right and linking every tweet to the Tea Party.
Meanwhile, Emerson, Kinder and the Missouri Republican Party have sat silent as we at the KC Blue Blog, Gone Mild, now other media outlets broke the news that Emerson (Blue Note: Peter Kinder's Congresswoman), was tied to the crowd, that spit on and yelled racial slurs at, a fellow member of the Missouri congressional delegation, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Kansas City).
This should have Missouri up in arms. If Peter Kinder can spend all weekend tweeting updates on health care reform, he certainly would be aware as the head of the Missouri GOP, that a Missouri Congressman was spit on and called the "N" word, by a crowd that Emerson was firing up. That's why we are calling on Peter Kinder and JoAnn Emerson to make a public statement on her involvement in this crowd of protestors and issue an apology.
