Governor Nixon Issued Subpoena in Case Regarding Department of Revenue Document-Scanning

Governor Jay Nixon may deny that a Department of Revenue scandal exists – but he’ll be in the Stoddard County courthouse on May 3 giving sworn testimony about that very scandal. According to the Missouri Times, Nixon will be subpoenaed to appear for a deposition in the case of Eric Griffin, the Southeast Missouri man whose experience first raised questions about the DOR’s document-scanning practice. A one-time Nixon supporter, Griffin now distrusts the governor and his administration. Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney Russ Oliver, who is representing Griffin in the case, said, “I look forward to asking the governor under oath what he knew and when he knew it. It is likely the only way we ever get to the bottom of this scandal.”
