CONSUMER SCAMS, SEX CRIMES TOP PRIORITIES
Democratic candidate for Attorney General Margaret Donnelly said today that fighting consumer scams and busting sexual predators would be her top priorities if elected in November.
Donnelly spoke about the Children's Product Safety Act, which will require mandatory removal of all recalled children's toys and products and a ban on toxic chemicals in these products.
She also discussed the establishment of a Senior Citizen Consumer Fraud Hotline to provide an easy way for seniors to check on and report consumer and financial frauds.
The St. Louis-area representative announced she would create a variety of consumer alert options that fit different citizens, including text messages, special RSS feeds and e-mail alerts.
She also called for establishing a special fugitive unit within the Attorney General's office to work with local authorities to track sex offenders who violate parole or do not register.
“Scammers, sexual predators, and those who bring unsafe products to this state will find my administration standing guard to keep Missouri families safe,” said Donnelly.
Donnelly is vying with Rep. Jeff Harris and Senator Chris Koster for the Democratic nomination for Attorney General.
