Rep. Cynthia Davis, R-O-Fallon, termed the "Worst Person in the World" twice this week by Countdown's Keith Olbermann (and taking the bronze tonight), may not be in favor of government providing meals for children in the summer, but she has no problem with accepting meals from lobbyists who are only feeding her because of her elected position.
Missouri Ethics Commission documents show Mrs. Davis has had 12 meals paid for and received two gifts from lobbyists. That, of course, does not include the cases in which lobbyists paid for meals for the various committees on which Mrs. Davis sits.
The documents indicate that on Jan. 15 Ms. Davis received a $133 meal paid for by C. K. Casteel, lobbyist for the St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association.
That $133 would certainly provide a decent meal for several kids, not just one legislator.
