For all I know, Missouri legislator Jason Crowell is a member of the Whig party, is opposed to women’s suffrage, and thinks we should declare war on Imperial Spain, but from what I do know of him, I like the cut of his jib:
A Missouri lawmaker is threatening to put an end to plans for the $600-million Ballpark Village project, next to Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
Representative Jason Crowell told the Springfield News-Leader that hell will freeze over before public subsides for the project pass. After about nine hours of debate today, the Senate decided it will revisit the issue next week.
I’m guessing that if they debated it for nine hours after his statement, Mr. Crowell doesn’t carry a lot of weight in Jefferson City, but man, I really do like a guy who states his position clearly.
