Remove Representative Mike Moon from the office of Missouri's 157th district.
The purpose of this petition is to seek the removal of Representative Mike Moon (by recall election) from Missouri's 157th District Office for conduct that can only be described as frightening and sociopathic. Conduct that has no place in Missouri's Capitol. A Capitol that is ultimately responsible for the people that it represents.
Representative Moon recently proposed House Bill 14, in which he has since named the “Missouri Right to Life Act". The bill was proposed to help garner rights of unborn children. Shortly after the bill's proposal Representative Moon took to social media to promote it's introduction. It was within this video that Representative Moon shockingly participated in the brutal and heartless decapitation of a live chicken, followed by it's full and graphic dismemberment.
The following is a transcript of the video's narration by Representative Moon:
“We’ve been called back for this special session for the primary purpose of supporting life, protecting the unborn specifically” Moon then proceeded to focus his attention on a shackled chicken which he then decapitated barehandedly (as it struggled during the process). Moon then proceeded to blissfully and gleefully butcher the animal, before ultimately removing it's heart as an analogy for the following narration; “I think we need to get to the heart of the matter here, so today I’m filing a bill that will lead to the stopping of abortion in the state of Missouri, and I hope you’ll support it.” During this graphic video Representative Moon justified his behavior through his belief that "God had established Dominion for him to do so". A belief that he cannot otherwise prove or establish as factual. A belief that he is also using to establish Missouri House Bill 14. Although Representative Moon is entitled to his religious beliefs, that same luxury should be afforded to both those within Representative Moons' district and Missourian's state wide. Representative Moon's lack of regard for the beliefs and rights of those he wishes to "serve" are also strong indicators as to why he is seemingly unfit to hold public office.
In closing we would like to use the very name of the bill Representative Moon is proposing to define the "Right to Life" as something that extends to all life. Despite Representative Moon's archaic beliefs, life is something that is of equal value regardless of species. So it is upon the request by the people of Missouri that Representative Moon be removed from office for not only being a poor representation of the State of Missouri, but a poor representation of himself and the values his claims to live by.
Those of us concerned.
Attached below is the graphic and unsettling video in question:
- Missouri State House
We are hereby requesting the recall or resignation of State Representative Mike Moon from the office of Missouri's 157th district. The reason for our request is due in part to Representative Moon's publicly broadcasted slaughter and dismemberment of a live chicken as a political message. Representative Moon's behavior can only be described as frightening and sociopathic, thus we feel his unqualified to hold a position of such great authority. Being that his behavior occurred after his most recent reelection we feel that a recall is in order based on his recent behavior being something that even his most staunch constitutes may find disturbing and inappropriate.
Those of us concerned.
