The Beacon's Jo Mannies has a good new rundown of Sen. Brian Nieves' ongoing implosion, including details on a formal complaint submitted to the Senate's Committee on Rules, Joint Rules, Resolutions and Ethics by three retired teachers in Franklin County.
Three critics of state Sen. Brian Nieves, R-Washington, have filed a formal complaint about his behavior with the state Senate's Committee on Rules, Joint Rules, Resolutions and Ethics.
The three retired teachers -- residents of Nieves' 26th District --earlier had complained in the Washington Missourian newspaper about a combative meeting they had with the senator about a month ago in the state Capitol.
During that meeting, Nieves had taken issue with an earlier letter to editor written by retired teacher Tom Smith, who is among the complainants, along with Lloyd Klinedinst and Frank Rogan. According to the three, Nieves shouted expletives and was abusive as he made clear his objections to Smith. (Click here and here and here to read their published accounts of the meeting.)
