UPDATE: Nixon has vetoed the bill.
The bill “is misguided, unnecessary and needlessly undermines certainty in important areas of the law,” his veto message says. “Missourians expect and deserve a judicial system that is both fair and predictable.”
Gov. Jay Nixon’s office has announced a news conference in St. Louis to “take action” on SB 267, a bill commonly referred to as the Sharia law bill.
In general, the measure prohibits use of foreign laws in Missouri courts.
And the largest Muslim group in the U.S. that is actively fighting for sharia law in the United States CAIR Applauds Missouri Gov’s Veto of Anti-Islam Bill.
No doubt Nixon and terror-linked CAIR worked closely on this effort and CAIR knew it would be vetoed before the vote or was the first notified. Hence the tailored and timely press release before any news media including a copy of Nixon’s comments.
In a statement today announcing the veto, Gov. Nixon said:
“This legislation seeks to solve a problem that does not exist, while creating the very real problem of jeopardizing Missouri’s families’ ability to adopt children from foreign countries. Here in Missouri, we believe in strengthening families and encouraging adoption. By placing additional barriers between couples who want to adopt and children who need loving homes, Senate Bill 267 is quite simply out of step with these basic values.”

A problem exists. See the recent image below of the CAIR leader Faizan Syed giving Governor Jay Nixon a Koran. Faizan Syed is the Director of CAIR Missouri who wants to prosecute Americans who insult Islam…using sharia law!
