The Assassination Attempt You Have Not Heard Of
by Erick Erickson
The American Thinker brings us word of an attempted assassination you probably have never heard of.
It happened in September of 2010 in Missouri. A 22 year old named Casey Brezik, wearing a bullet proof vest, charged toward Missouri’s Democratic Governor Jay Nixon with a knife and attempted to slash his throat.
The only thing I can find that represents MSM coverage is ref to a Kansas City Star article that is no longer available if you go to that website, but there are plenty of other articles about him (Nixon) from that time frame re 8/1, 8/12, 9/5, 9/15 & 9/29, and there is a mention about this on Jay Nixon's Wikipedia page. But there are charges filed against Brezik for 1st deg Assault & Armed Criminal Action filed in State Court .
Something smells here. No refs at all from CBS, NBC etc or local affiliates of an attack on the leader of a state Why would a major (?) area newspaper "scrub" any references to an attack on the state's Gov ?
Any Missouians here that remember this in the news?
