ADLF Files Legal Complaint Against Hawley
For Misuse of Public Funds
The American Democracy Legal Fund has filed a legal complaint against Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley for his misuse of taxpayer resources to further his political career.
The complaint asks the Missouri Secretary of State to investigate Hawley’s alleged outsourcing of Attorney General business to two partisan political consultants, who directed taxpayer-funded Attorney General staff to conduct the office in a manner that would benefit Hawley’s political career.
“Hawley suggested nobody is above the law. And, as Missouri’s chief law enforcement officer and advisor, neither is he,” writes ADLF President Brad Woodhouse. “Hawley’s conduct violates the trust that Missourians gave him to serve the public interest and enforce this state’s laws honorably. And most of all, Hawley’s conduct appears to demonstrate a misuse of public funds.”
