Observing, how is it that the Highway Patrol could directly access the DOR data when they have no custodial authority over the data itself? Did DOR appoint MSHP as custodians of DOR records? Looks to me like MSHP and DOR are too comfortable with each other and that it is a "fox guarding the henhouse" situation. Sources have stated that Jackie Bemboom has an extremely cozy relationship with MSHP and never questions their intentions. This would indicate a serious dereliction of duty justifying her termination.
Observing, what business is it for the Department of Revenue to collect any biometric information on law abiding citizens? The DOR is simply a tax collection agency. DOR is not commissioned by the Missouri Constitution to do anything close to biometric comparison's of individual identifying information. Biometric analysis is something that trained law enforcement professionals are tasked with in solving crimes. You postulate that DOR has some referendum established under public policy to provide biometric analysis of every innocent Missourian who seeks a drivers license or identification card. Please provide us with the specific statutory requirement that authorizes such activity?
Observing, I am interested in your reflections on Gov. Nixon's firing of Gracia Backer for standing up for the rights of an improperly fired state employee? How do you rectify this with the incompetence of an overly zealous bureaucrat like Bemboom who is only looking for a future job with AAMVA and made sure she violated Missouri law in order not to lose face.
Observing, if you are a republican, please leave the party. You are a Nixon apologist. Mr. Schaefer has plenty of information on the INCOMPETENCE of Ms. Bemboom and her ilk. Facts have come out almost on a daily basis indicting Nixon, Mollenkamp, and this definition of incompetance named Bemboom. It is the mind numb kool aid drinkers in our society that continue to look past the obvious in order to maintain the status quo. You must be enjoying the flavor (kool aid) of the week.
Let's also take John Mollenkamp and Jackie Bemboom's salaries from the Department of Revenue after they are convicted or fired and put them towards something productive like capitol improvements.
Observing, "let's make sure the Senators are being up front", how in the world did you allow your fingers to type such an outlandish statement? It was Bemboom, Moollenkamp, Long, and Replogle who were not being up front with every Missourian over what they knew.
The only remaining question is what did Nixon know? I suspect we are soon to find out.
Bemboom is toast. We all knew Nixon was a terrible governor, just never suspected he was this ridiculously unintelligent to hang is coat in Bemboom's closet for so long.
If he doesn't fire her, bet we can look for criminal charges.

Mr. Nixon, the impeachment bell tolls for thee. Fire Bemboom and Replogle now!
