( KTRS ) Republicans in the state Senate continue to criticize the University of Missouri for not firing an assistant professor who confronted journalists during campus protests last November.
Melissa Click was charged with misdemeanor assault, on Monday, in connection with her run-in with a student videographer and a student photographer. The confrontation on the Columbia campus happened during protests over indifference to racial issues at the school.
Republican Sen. Eric Schmitt, of Glendale, and others on the Senate floor Monday questioned why Click hasn’t been fired.
He says lawmakers could look closely at the school’s budget, which includes state funding, in the wake of what has occurred there.
