Thanks to a reader for pointing out Arch City Chronicle's story on another junket taken by former Rep. Nathan Cooper, R-Cape Girardeau. In an item posted Wednesday, the blog notes:
Although he is no longer a state representative, that didn't stop Nathan Cooper from attending the Council of State Government's "Healthy States Forum for State Legislators" in New Orleans last weekend. Cooper was spotted going to sessions and otherwise enjoying himself at the LA-Hilton Riverside Hotel from August 23-25.
As I noted last night in The Turner Report, Cooper has petitioned the court to return his passport so he can take a trip to the Philippines. The U. S. attorney's office opposes the motion.
