Show-Me 'Clean Missouri' Hot Mess 2020

A progressive report imagines "ethics reform" in Missouri by will over the voters. Adults know better.

For the most part this debate is a waste of time and hasn't really moved the dial given that the Missouri Auditor isn't much of a campaigner . . .

Missourians will experience some déjà vu on Nov. 3.

If the voters approved this with more than 60% of the vote just two years ago, why would the legislature want to overturn it? They only logical answer is that they want to continue to be able to use partisan gerrymandering to rig elections.

This isn't a republican or democrat issue as both sides have been guilty of partisan gerrymandering in the past. It is an issue of politicians doing everything in their power to stay in power by rigging the system.
