Tribune: GOP leader worked for lobbying firm
On several occasions I have mentioned that Rep. Steve Hunter, R-Joplin, is a paid membership recruiter for Associated Industries of Missouri, a group which essentially is a lobbying firm for state businesses.
Apparently, Hunter is not the only House member with such a blatant conflict of interest. Speaker Pro Tem Carl Bearden, the second most powerful man in the House, listed DK Solutions, a lobbying firm as a place from which he received income, according to an article in today's Columbia Tribune.
