No surprise here:

Susan Montee well-qualified to be lieutenant governor

Kansas City Star Editorial

Republican Peter Kinder spent his second term as Missouri’s lieutenant governor improperly spending taxpayers’ money for political travel, challenging the federal health reform law in a clumsy lawsuit and getting in trouble with visits to a bawdy nightclub.

No wonder Kinder was unable to put together a campaign for governor. But now he wants to warm the lieutenant governor’s seat for a third term.

Fortunately, voters have a much better option in Democrat Susan Montee.

As a former state auditor, Montee knows every nook and cranny of state government.

She would be eminently qualified to fill in for the governor if needed – which, after all, is the primary function of the office….

….Voters can expect Montee to carry out her duties in a responsible, conscientious way. The same cannot be said for Kinder.
