Ameristar Casino lobbyist pays to bring in New Year for House Majority Floor Leader Tilley

Missouri Ethics Commission documents indicate House Majority Floor Leader Steven Tilley, R-Perryville, brought in the new year with a little help from his friend- Ameristar Casinos lobbyist Jorgen Schlemeier.

Schlemeier paid $1,742.28, $580.76 apiece in "lodging, meals, and entertainment" for Tilley, Sen. Jason Crowell, R-Cape Girardeau; and former Speaker of the House Rod Jetton to celebrate the ringing out of the old and the ringing in of the new at Ameristar Casino in Kansas City, the Gamble and Schlemeier client that footed the bill for the excursion, according to the Ethics Commission documents.

Ironic that Tilley is now chairman of the Ethics Committee

Clark - everything was reported as required.

You don't like it - move to Tilley's district and vote against him.

My guess is most of the people in Tilley's district don't have the slightest idea of who is footing the bill for his entertainment, and some of them, unlike you, would probably not be happy about it.

Like on most things, you would be guessing wrong.
