Gift to Nixon raises questions about Missouri campaign funds (06/21/15)
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- An internationally known union donated $50,000 to Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon days after he recently vetoed a contentious right-to-work measure, a sizable contribution that could help fund a re-election campaign -- if he was not term-limited from running again...
Bush, Perry join unwieldy race as new phase of GOP campaign begins (06/05/15)
WASHINGTON -- Jeb Bush stepped into the Republican race for president Thursday, finally taking his place -- after months of hints and relentless fundraising -- amid an unwieldy field of GOP candidates unlike any in recent memory. The son of one president and brother of another, the former Florida governor has the rank of front-runner and the donors to match. He now has eight months before the first votes are cast in the Iowa caucuses to prove he's worthy of both...

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri House Speaker John Diehl said Thursday he is resigning from the Legislature after acknowledging he exchanged sexually suggestive text messages with a college student serving as a Capitol intern.

Cape County use tax stands after recount (04/29/15)
Just nine votes separated voters' choice to allow a use tax to be levied in Cape Girardeau County after ballots were officially recounted Tuesday.

Voter intent may decide use-tax recount (04/27/15)
Not only has the Cape Girardeau County use-tax question demonstrated the importance of exercising the right to vote, it offers a lesson on following instructions. A petition calling for a recount was filed April 13 with the circuit clerk's office -- a move allowed by the state because the difference between the number of votes in favor and against the measure was less than 1 percent. ...
