QUICK CLIP: Josh Hawley Paid DC Legal Team to Screen Mizzou Emails Before Public Release

A devastating report out today reveals that Missouri GOP Senate candidate Josh Hawley used nearly $100,000 in campaign money to pay DC lawyers to comb through the emails he sent while employed at Mizzou, before releasing them under Missouri’s Sunshine Law. A Mizzou spokesperson called Hawley’s thorough legal screen of his emails “very rare,” noting it hadn’t happened in recent memory.

“What is Josh Hawley so desperate to hide that he spent nearly six figures on an elite Washington law firm to hide his emails from Missourians? This is yet another reason Missourians don’t trust Hawley, who campaigns on transparency but hides public business from the public — just like a typical, ladder-climbing politician,” said American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp.
