Nasheed Fired-Up: McCaskill & Hawley Join The Probing Mice-Infested Peabody Darst Webbe

Most of us have not heard from the Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, who is just getting his feet wet, learning about out-state issues, let alone learning about some public health issues in big City -- Kansas City and St. Louis.
 
 
But based on recent press releases and other media reports, Missouri State Senator Jamilah Nasheed, who is termed-out and is running with speed against aldermanic president Lewis Reed has zeroed on are voters’ base, the City and the housing projects. Of late while trying to get the MO governor ousted and passing some meaningful bills, Nasheed has brought with her to the street fight, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill.
 
McCaskill needs her City based fired-up and many tell the new St. Louis Evening Whirl, that it’s about time to see our federal elected officials out and about, on issues impacting all of Missouri.
  
 
So, Missouri’s golden boy Attorney General Josh Hawley announced his office will also investigate the terrible living conditions at the mice-infested Peabody projects.
 
 
Hawley, a Republican who is running for U.S. Senate, against tough-Missouri incumbent McCaskill, who is expected to win, some predict because Donald ‘Orange” Trump has pissed off so many white soccer moms.  He says his investigation would focus on whether conditions in the complex violated the state’s Merchandising Practices Act by creating “an uninhabitable living environment.”
 
 
The city released a survey in December that found mice in at least 165 of the complex’s 358 apartments!
 
 
“My Office is standing up for residents of the Clinton-Peabody Housing Complex who don’t have the power to do this for themselves,” Hawley said in a statement. “If these allegations are true, this must be fixed. No Missourian should have to live in an uninhabitable environment.”
 
 
Hawley’s office said that Missouri law required residential rental property to be “safe and appropriate for habitation.”
 
 
The crime-ridden 31-building complex was built in 1942, and 1,000 poor residents currently live there.
 
Lazy Ass Cheryl Lovell, the executive director of the housing authority, who needs to be fired, because she is disconnected from her tenants, announced that she had not received notice of the investigation.
 
 
“I have no idea what they’re even requesting,” she said. But she has no ideas period.
 
 
Living conditions at the housing complex have been under a microscope for months as residents and others have broadcast their concerns over the mice infestation. The housing authority and city health officials have also butted heads over the complex’s conditions.
 
 
Last month, state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed and state Rep. Bruce Franks, both St. Louis Democrats, organized a demonstration at a packed meeting to demand improvements — or a change in housing authority leadership.
 
 
“No person, rich or poor, should have to live with mice in their apartment,” resident Melissa Ennis said at the time. “If the efforts were strong enough the mice wouldn’t be there.”
 
 
Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., has also voiced concerns to U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Dr. Ben Carson, she expressed “grave concern” over the infestation and urged the agency to “act swiftly” to develop a long-term solution. Carson is spending your taxpayers’ dough on fancy office furniture, and when he’s not he’s kissing the orange behind of Donald “Lucifer” Trump.
