Doug Funderburk Says He Keeps Missouri Secession Legislation In His Desk

Last week, we shared the story of secession advocate and legislative hopeful Fred Ellison. State Representative Doug Funderburk saw our post on Facebook and offered to send Ellison a sample copy of a bill withdrawing Missouri from the United States. Funderburk said he keeps a copy of the legislation in his center desk drawer, presumbably at the Capitol. 

Luckily, Funderburk is term-limited and won't be returning to the Capitol next year to file the secession bill he says he kept tucked away. Missourians should avoid sending another proponent of the insane plan like Fred Ellison in his stead.
