KC Star: FBI investigating Missouri legislators

According to Kansas City Star political reporter Steve Kraske, the FBI is investigating "pay for play" in the Missouri legislature, including allegations that lawmakers have to come across with campaign contributions in return for committee assignments or to receive hearings for their bills:

Three lawmakers told The Kansas City Star that they had been talking with agents and providing information. At least one lawmaker said he had recorded private conversations with lawmakers under scrutiny for the investigators.

The inquiry began at least a year ago and has continued into the current session of the General Assembly

This kind of investigation should come as no surprise to regular readers of The Turner Report, which has been chronicling the pernicious effects of money on Missouri's political system for years.

Let's see, no proof, no identification, no investigation.

Just another example of the press (Kraske) and wanna-be's (Turner) jumping to conclusions they wish were true but aren't.

Oops, looks like it's one of your democrat friends on the hot seat.

Kinda spoils your anti-republican rant.

Anonymous 5:28am: I don't see any more evidence of a higher level of crookedness in Jefferson City than I do here. Especially when I read what the writer of the blog attempts to pass off as facts.
