What's going on with the Missouri Attorney General?
The Missouri Attorney General seems to be picking a lot of legal fights and grabbing a lot of headlines, with some high profile court losses lately. We'll take a look at Andrew Bailey’s first six months on the job, what the role of attorney general is supposed to be, and what it's becoming.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has made a splash in the first six months since his appointment by Republican Gov. Mike Parson. It’s still more than a year before he hopes to win election for a full four-year term.
Host Brain Ellison spoke with Chuck Hatfield, who worked in the attorney general’s office under Democrat Jay Nixon for a decade, about how the role has changed and what the future may hold.
