A press release from Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster:

Attorney General’s Office to defend Senate in Sunshine lawsuit

Apr 20, 2015, 16:04 PM

Jefferson City, Mo. – The Attorney General’s Office released the following statement:

“Last week, the Missouri Senate, three of its legislative committees, and their chairpersons were sued under the Missouri Sunshine Law for acts related to the administration of official proceedings of the Senate. The Attorney General’s Office has communicated to Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey that the AGO will provide counsel to the General Assembly and vigorously defend the legislature in this matter.”

Because the Missouri Senate is a private club and the public has no business hearing about their business?

Because the Missouri Capitol News Association is another private club and they’ll know best which business to filter from the public view?

You know, this is the twenty-first century.
