The Department of Natural Resources doesn’t want Attorney General Jay Nixon representing it any more on the Taum Sauk Reservoir collapse case. DNR Director Doyle Childres says he cannot trust Nixon to represent the department because Nixon took some campaign money from Taum Sauk’s owner, Ameren. DNR chief Doyle Childers says Nixon no longer represents his agency in any investigation or settlement. Attorney General spokesman John Fougere says Nixon will not abandon the investigation, although he grudgingly admits DNR can pursue its own case. Childers says he does not trust Nixon because of the donation from Ameren-UE. Nixon says the Blunt Administration hardly has clean hands either – because the governor’s brother lobbies for the company.
