Extra security is in place for Sen. Claire McCaskill following a comment at a Tea Party rally last week.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/J0UzbR ) reports that St. Louis area activist Scott Boston told a Tea Party gathering in Springfield, Mo., on Thursday, "We have to get Claire McCaskill out. We have to kill the Claire Bear ladies and gentlemen."
The Missouri House passed legislation yesterday that would bar school administrators from using teacher seniority in layoffs. Under the bill, teachers' performance would need to be the most important factor in those decisions.
