The controversy over the sale of assets of the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority goes on with the Attorney General and the Governor at odds. The lawsuit filed by Attorney General Jay Nixon doesn’t deal with the content of the deal, itself, but on what he claims is a violation of the Sunshine Law in that the deal was worked out behind closed doors. Speaking at a Capitol event organized by the Missouri Press Association and the Associated Press, he insisted secrecy could nullify the deal. Governor Matt Blunt thinks the suggestion that the MOHELA Board’s decision could be nullified is ridiculous. Nixon concedes his action does not stop the MOHELA Board from moving forward with its plans, though the Board might have to conduct the process again out in the open.
