Dear Mr. Wills,
We all know that the nation is closely following the events that have been unfolding the past week in Ferguson, MO. First let me start by saying that I didn’t think it was possible for a political figure to come off looking any worse than Governor Jay Nixon this past week. He has made one misstep after another possibly ending his political career. Nixon was winning the award for what not to do in politics and I believe is ultimately going to end up a political science case study second only to those who botched the Hurricane Katrina rescue efforts.
Then you came along….
In response to the outrage the citizens of Ferguson are feeling, a voter registration tent has gone up encouraging people to vote. In response to that effort, you gave an interview in which you said,
“If that’s not fanning the political flames, I don’t know what is,” Wills said, “I think it’s not only disgusting but completely inappropriate.” http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/missouri-gop-leader-calls-ferguson-voter-registration-drive-disgusting
“Wills, who had been serving as communications director for the Missouri Republican Party since June, said his priorities are to strengthen ‘get-out-the-vote’ efforts and the index of voter information that is available to Republican candidates.”
