Ameren lobbyist contributes $11,000 to Nixon

Jefferson City attorney Joseph Bednar, Jr., a registered lobbyist for Ameren UE, contributed $11,000 to Gov. Jay Nixon's campaign account Thursday, according to a 48-hour report filed today with the Missouri Ethics Commission.

Bednar, who also represents Centene Corporation and Armstrong Teasdale, among other clients, is the lawyer representing Sen. Jeff Smith, D-St. Louis, in the Isle of Capri case.

Smith allegedly used the identification of Rep. Joseph Aull, D-Marshall, to gamble at the Isle of Capri in Boonville during a lobbyist-financed junket on July 31, 2007.
