This comes just one day after Jetton was charged with felony assault in Scott County:
Jetton, the former Speaker of the Missouri House, released the following statement through his lawyer, Stephen C. Wilson:
"Rod Jetton is announcing that he will be closing Rod Jetton & Associates, his consulting firm.
"He will be leaving politics to deal with false allegations and spend timewith his family. He is confident that when the facts of this case are heard,he will be found innocent."
(In the accompanying video, Rod Jetton explains how his consulting firm helped clients raise money for their campaigns.)
