There has been lots of chatter about why the investigation began on this again in 2013 and what new evidence can pop up etc. He married his second wife within about a year and a half of the death of Cory. He and his second wife were then divorced in 2013. One article on another news source said the second wife was contacted and said "I can't talk about it." Whether that means she was told by someone…

I can actually think of a few scenarios where malice may not even be an issue, and that would reflect very darkly on the whole situation to the community at large. As darkly as out-and-out murder? I don't know, that would be in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

Nancy Grace is actually correct on that point. It depends on the state, but in most states you can "premeditate" if you even have a few seconds to contemplate the action before taking it. That's opposed to a pure "heat of the moment" situation where the killer literally doesn't think, just acts. That would get you down to Second Degree murder (I believe)

Once again, I don't like your proposal. Why tie it to the water bill ? Explain why if I take 10 showers a day, I should pay more for garbage service? Furthermore, If you purchace a seperate meter for water, the city cannot make you pay for sewer tax if it is used to water your garden or grass. What makes you think they can charge for garbage pick up if i use a third party? If you can remember…

New MO GOP Chair Shares Plans for Party

1 year, 7 months ago Bryan Nichols

Ed Martin was elected on Saturday to head the Republican Party in Missouri.

Missouri Republicans elected a new chairman on Saturday. Ed Martin, who unsuccessfully ran for Attorney General in 2012 and Congress in 2010, defeated incumbent Chairman David Cole by a vote of 34-32.

Martin appeared on The Morning Meeting on WTAD on Tuesday. He said the motivating reason for his run for Chair as well as his previous races was what he called President Obama’s vision for government.

“We saw what President Obama laid bare which is the Democratic vision of government as the definer of what’s opportunity and not for us. Whether it was the stimulus or Obamacare or anything else, that’s what motivated us,” Martin said.

Martin said that he will help set the vision for the Missouri Republican Party.

“We have got to get back to the principles, which are in the Republican Party, of opportunity for all based on the rule of law and the Constitution and the notion of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” Martin said.

 “If we can do that and when we do it, I think we make things better for Missourians and Americans.”

After the 2012 election results were in, Republicans across the country questioned what needed to be changed in order to win elections. Martin said he doesn’t believe in changing principles to win elections.

“I’ve never understood the idea that you change your principles and ideas. That’s what’s wrong with the Democrat party and too many people in politics.”

Martin said the 2012 statewide results in Missouri, which saw all but one statewide Republican candidate lose, were the result of money and lies.

“There was much more money spent, almost $20 million spent on statewide candidates. And, the statewide candidates on the Democratic side lied about their record. They claimed that they were conservatives and budget balancers and wouldn’t raise taxes. They said Claire McCaskill was a moderate and a waste fighter.”

Martin said future wins for the Republican Party in Missouri would depend making sure the party had the political basics available to it.

“It’s gonna take fundraising, it’s gonna take a real commitment to building databases, surrogates, and people to build the party so we don’t get outspent and we get momentum going, “ Martin said.

“We have to work harder to define the other people that are running, the other party’s positions and how they are not as good for Missourians. We can’t wait till 6 or 10 weeks before the election to have our candidates do a mailer or a radio ad.”

Martin said that the Republican majorities in the State House and Senate would be useful in putting forth their policies and forcing them upon Democratic Governor Jay Nixon through vetoes. He said hoped Republicans could then go throughout the state spreading their message of less government, lower taxes and being true to the rule of law. The hope being that the message combined with the implemented policies will translate to votes in the elections to come
