Missouri GOP Secretary of State launches investigation into Hawley’s time as AG

Missouri’s Republican Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft has opened an investigation into how outgoing Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) ran his office before launching his bid for Missouri’s Senate seat, according to a letter obtained by The Hill.

In a letter dated Thursday to Brad Woodhouse of the Democratic-allied American Democracy Legal Fund, Ashcroft’s deputy general counsel Khristine Heisinger wrote, “This office will commence an investigation into the alleged offense.”

Heisinger also asks for any information the organization may have to be forwarded to the secretary of state’s office.

The letter comes after the organization wrote to Ashcroft on Nov. 2, days before the midterm elections, accusing Hawley of using “public funds as Attorney General to support his candidacy for U.S. Senate.”
