The U.S. Army has issued a letter of reprimand to State Senator Jon Dolan, who left his duty station in Cuba to come back to Missouri and cast an important vote in last September’s veto-override session of the Legislature. Dolan had been called to active duty after last year’s regular legislative session. Military investigators say he did not knowingly engage in wrongdoing, but he did violate an Army rule that bars reservices from carrying out functions of their police offices when they are called up for active duty. Dolan has been given a choce of continuing to fulfil his active duty assignment, or leaving early to return to the Senate. He’s decided to return to the State Senate after spending some time with his family at Disney World. He’ll be back in the Senate in two weeks. Under terms of his original call-up he would have missed most, if not all, of the legislative session.
