Congressman Emanuel Cleaver Endorses Democrat Teresa Hensleyfor Missouri Attorney General
RAYMORE, MO - Congressman Emanuel Cleaver III (D-MO) has publicly endorsed Democrat Teresa Hensley for Attorney General in the August primary.
"It is critical that we elect the most qualified candidate for the top law officer of Missouri. Teresa Hensley is that candidate," said Congressman Cleaver. "The Attorney General's office is far too important to turn over to career politicians who have barely practiced law or have right-wing extremist agendas. With Teresa's extensive experience and proven record, I believe she is the only Democrat who can win in November."
The Attorney General is the "people's attorney" and Teresa Hensley has a record of fighting for fairness and equality, and will protect the most vulnerable, including victims of senior abuse, domestic violence, and especially children.
Teresa Hensley is the only candidate - democrat or republican - with twenty-four years in the courtroom, including a decade as Cass County's top prosecutor. She has an unmatched record of success with a perfect twenty-one for twenty-one murder conviction rate, hundreds of successful child abuse and sexual assault prosecutions and a record of cracking down on scams against seniors.
Teresa Hensley is a lifelong Missourian who currently practices law with her family's firm in Raymore and is a family law mediator. Teresa was appointed Cass County Prosecuting Attorney in January 2005 and served two full terms. She taught social studies at Leavenworth Public Schools and criminal law at her alma mater, William Jewell College. In 2010 Teresa received the Missouri Attorney General's Justice Award for Domestic Violence Prevention, and in 2015 she received the Missouri Lawyers' Public Service Practitioner Award. Teresa participated as a prosecutor in the Child Abuse Response Team and the DWI Task Force.
If elected, Teresa would be the first woman in Missouri to serve as attorney general.
