JEFFERSON CITY — A 79-page memorandum released Monday says there are “credible allegations” Gov. Mike Parson’s administration interfered with a House investigation into the state’s medical marijuana program, without detailing specific instances of interference.
MEMO TABLE OF CONTENTS
The memo, prepared by counsel for the House Democrats, said that beginning in May, “credible allegations emerged concerning executive branch interference in” the Special Committee on Government Oversight’s investigation of the Republican administration’s medical marijuana program.
Casey Millburg, the staffer who wrote the memo to House Minority Leader Crystal Quade and the three Democrats on the investigative panel, said in the memo that she wouldn’t detail the allegations because the Special Committee on Government Oversight had yet to meet to discuss them.
Kelli Jones, spokeswoman for the governor’s office, on Tuesday dismissed the memo as “a partisan attempt to create a negative story about the governor before the election.”
