State Auditor Nicole Galloway (D) is living rent free in Senator and former Attorney General Josh Hawley’s (r) head.
Josh Hawley (r) is publicly whining about an audit released on Thursday about a portion of Hawley’s (r) short tenure as Missouri Attorney General.
From the audit [pdf]:
…In a December 31, 2019, letter (Appendix I, page 435) in response to seeing a draft copy of this report, the AGO formally objected to the inclusion of interview transcripts in this report, and stated the inclusion of these transcripts would be a disclosure of audit working papers, and therefore, a felony violation of Chapter 29, RSMo. The SAO disagrees with this conclusion. Objections to the inclusion of interview transcripts and audit communications citing Chapter 29, RSMo, are without merit. The confidentiality provisions of Chapter 29 are intended to protect the SAO’s working papers from public disclosure. The interpretation that those confidentiality provisions are intended to keep the SAO from disclosing information obtained during the course of the audit is at odds with Chapter 29, RSMo, and Yellow Book requirements, which both require a report of information obtained during an audit be made public. In addition, the statement that the inclusion of working papers as appendices to a public report is unprecedented is not accurate. Including information obtained during an audit as appendices is very common and not unique to this administration. Appendices have been part of audit reports issued by the SAO for decades…
This evening Josh Hawley (r) again took to Twitter:
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Don’t think @nicolergalloway attacks on me & other Republicans are 100% political? Now she’s fundraising off of audits! Is it too much to ask that she just do her job – and quit using her office to campaign? #mogov #moleg

Let’s see: projection, chutzpah, entitlement, lack of self awareness, ladder climbing… That’s a lot to pack into one Tweet.
What a maroon.
Of course, there is much hilarity in the responses:
I guess you shouldn’t have given her the ammo now, shouldn’t you? The only one you have to blame is yourself. Stand up and take it like a man.
Projecting. Like Trump.
One word, projection!
These ppl weaponize everything against Republicans..the IRS, the FBI, the FISA Courts. They are truly totalitarian
What a friend they have in Putin.
Didn’t you do THE SAME DAMN THING??…Oh wait yes you did and her audit showed it
You’re the worst, Josh
She must be getting close to the target to have so many tweets from you. Also don’t use any of your ‘achievements’ when you attempt to run for office again.
Golden coming from you #senatorflatbed
You didn’t do your job…..you swore to uphold the Constitution and yet you voted to acquit the most corrupt, immoral President in the history of the US.
We will not forget.
You used your office and staff to campaign. Get off your high horse, little Josh. It’s tiring.
‘do her job and quit using her office to campaign’???? That is rich coming from you.
You seem worried.
Why don’t you worry about serving the people of the state you really don’t represent well?
You have lost all of your credibility and any respect that I may have had for you. It sounds like it isn’t just me either.
VP of trump water carriers. Speaking of doing your job, did you forget your office? When are you gonna come back and face your constituents? You’re a joke.
Lol, you outsourced the AG job while you campaigned for Senate! You are perfect for Trumpian times, a shameless liar and hypocrite. You still don’t want us to have healthcare, even as you lied about it. Weasel.
No one want to listen to your BS anymore. We have no respect for you. We would actually prefer you resign.
You seem like the type that has gotten into a heated argument over FaceTime, only to find out your selfie cam was on. You’re a hypocrite. Resign.
You must be kidding. You never really did your job in MO. Went to the gym and then started campaigning for senate. At least she can point to actual completed tasks
Ouch. That one left a mark.
Dude..you are a political hack extraordinaire. Very recently out took an oath to God and trashed it. You lustily cheered the medaling of a racist and said nothing when a war hero was jackbooted out of the White House! I think the natives call this “speaking with a forked tongue”.
Let’s see… how did Josh get elected Senator? He fundraised off his BS record as AG.
You belong with Trump. You’re both full of shit.
Lol you have to be kidding….what the heck did you do even after you said you weren’t interested in a senatorial position you are such a liar wow
