'Stop The Steal' Protests Continue for Second Week in Jefferson City

At a rally Saturday protesting the results of the Nov. 3 presidential election, Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft assured a crowd of about 320 Trump supporters that Missouri senators didn't accept the current election results.

At the event, which was hosted by state Sen. Cindy O'Laughlin, R-Shelbina, Ashcroft expressed deep mistrust in mail-in voting and said other states should model their elections after Missouri.

In an interview after his remarks to the crowd, Ashcroft said Missourians did not use mail-in ballots at high rates and typically dropped off absentee ballots themselves at their polling place.
