It’s tax season in Missouri politics.

“He ran, he won, the people of this state voted for him by 20 points, now Senator McCaskill is running and there are serious questions about how she has profited from her seat in the U.S. Senate, how she’s gotten to be one of the richest members of the Senate,” Hawley said. “So what anybody else has done is immaterial.”


Affordable housing projects suffer in the wake of former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens tenure.

“We have the land, it’s tax-exempt,” SAVE, Inc., CEO Blaine Proctor said. “It’s not like we’re paying taxes on it and everything like that.”

Things were thrown into confusion in November, when former Gov. Eric Greitens steered the Missouri Housing Development Commission to put an embargo on the tax credits on the state level. Three of the commissioners who voted to suspend the program had been appointed on an interim basis by Greitens.

“I was at the commission meeting where they eliminated the state tax credits and really sat there sort of shell-shocked because I couldn’t believe what I was watching,” Proctor said.


Lock your doors.

A 19-year-old Salina woman has pleaded guilty to charges arising from an incident last year when she entered a stranger’s home after using LSD and repeatedly stabbed him.

Rathbun testified during an April hearing that he was awakened by a woman he didn’t know who was demanding to know what he was doing in her house, and she stabbed him as he called police.


Signs of autumn appear on roadways.
