A Missouri lawmaker wants to impeach Governor Jay Nixon for not moving fast enough to call special elections for vacant seats. House Republican Mike Moon, of Ash Grove filed articles of impeachment yesterday (Thursday). Currently there are three House vacancies and one open seat in the Senate. Last month, Nixon set an August election for the three House seats but has not set a date for the Senate vacancy. Moon’s articles say the delay has denied representation for almost 300-thousand Missourians. Another article of impeachment has also been filed against the Governor for his decision to direct state tax officials to accept joint returns from gay couples who were married in states where same sex marriage is legal.
