Missouri: Clemency in the Campaign

It is reported that the Missouri attorney general campaign between Republican Michael Gibbons and Democrat Chris Koster "has become increasingly nasty." Koster's campaign is said to be portraying Gibbons as "soft on crime." As an ad says:

"Chris Koster put away the bad guys. Crooked stockbrokers, sexual predators, and Missouri's worst serial killer. As a lifetime politician, Mike Gibbons voted to let over 1,400 criminals out of jail, supported release for killer of a young girl, and has never prosecuted a single case in court."

Gibbons says the ad is "simply false" because he did not support clemency for Jack Rapheld, who was convicted for the murder of a 19-year-old woman. See story here.
