 FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Missouri State Senator who represents Ferguson, and about 40 other municipalities, spoke out again Monday against Governor Jay Nixon.

State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal has been with young, peaceful demonstrators since their movement began in Ferguson.  She said Nixon’s appointed head of security, Captain Ron Johnson, is there to cover up the governor’s mistakes.

“It’s my belief that Ron Johnson was used as a pawn to cover up Governor Jay Nixon’s failure,” Chappelle-Nadal tweeted Sunday.
