Missouri Ethics Commission documents indicate that lobbyist Travis Brown, who got his start at Monsanto, is no longer representing the company, nor are his partners former Rep. Carl Bearden and Mark Tucker. The separation took place Jan. 9.
Brown, who had been representing Monsanto's interest in Jefferson City since Jan. 3, 2001, still has a strong stable of clients, including billionaire Rex Sinquefield, K12, and AT&T.
Things are going well enough that as of Thursday, another lobbyist, David Michael Jackson, has been added to represent Brown's clients.
As noted in the Turner Report Thursday, Chuck Hatfield, a longtime associate of both Gov. Jay Nixon and Attorney General Chris Koster, has signed on to represent Monsanto.
