PAC uses Missouri governor's attack on paper to raise money
A political action committee backing Republican Gov. Mike Parson is raising money with a new video highlighting his attacks on a Missouri newspaper.
The video released Thursday is a response to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's discovery of a flaw in a state agency’s cybersecurity. The 55-second video released from Uniting Missouri praises Parson for standing up to what the video called Missouri's “fake news factory.”
The newspaper last week found a security flaw that allowed the public to view the Social Security numbers of thousands of teachers through a state website. The Post-Dispatch alerted the state and held off on reporting on the problem until it was fixed.
