Couple Could Lose Their Law Licenses After Aiming Guns At BLM Protestors
Missouri’s chief disciplinary counsel is asking the state Supreme Court to suspend the law licenses of a St. Louis couple that pleaded guilty to waving guns at unarmed Black Lives Matter protesters. Also, why Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft wants local elections to become partisan.
St. Louis couple Mark and Patricia McCloskey went viral last year after they stood outside their home and pointed guns at unarmed Black Lives Matter protestors. Now, a Missouri office that disciplines lawyers says the couple should lose their law licenses. KCUR’s Dan Margolies reported that story and stopped by to talk about it.
Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft thinks voter turnout in Missouri’s local elections would be better if they were partisan. More on this from St. Louis Public Radio's Rolla Correspondent, Jonathan Ahl.
