Senator Mike Parson released this announcement in regard to the recount effort taking place on Amendment 1, “Right To Farm,” which passed in August by just over a 2,000 vote margin statewide:

“It is a shame the taxpayers have had to foot the bill for this recount when it was clear the outcome would not be changed,” said Parson, “The effort and expense for this project has been significant.  I am looking forward to the results being certified and this important language being added to the Missouri Constitution.”

I’m sure that if those 2,000 votes had fallen to the other side, the Senator from Farm Bureau would have held his head high and accepted defeat gracefully, without even a passing thought about making taxpayers “foot the bill.”
