It’s a little more difficult for the majority party to stifle legislative debate on social media.
Earlier this week from Governor-elect Eric Greitens (r), via Twitter:
Eric Greitens @EricGreitens
I look forward to signing a complete ban on gifts from lobbyists. Time to end politics as usual.

Then, retweeted by Representative Justn Alferman (r):
Justin Alferman @Justinalf
So excited to have a Governor who will engage with the Legislature!
8:27 PM – 5 Jan 2017
And, today, from Representative Tracy McCreery (D):
Tracy McCreery @TracyMcCreery
.@Justinalf Isn’t it going to be awkward when the Greitens administration does not support your bill since it is not a complete ban?
