Gov. Mike Parson was among the Missouri politicians condemning protesters that breached the U.S. Capitol during the Electoral College certification Wednesday.
“I am a law and order guy,” said Parson. “You don’t violate the law. There’s rules and regulations, and you have to abide by them.”
Several state lawmakers voiced their displeasure, too, following the start of the legislative session Wednesday. Columbia Republican Senator Caleb Rowden called the events in Washington “domestic terrorism and definitionally un-American.”
