Lawmakers and their staff must always be careful not to campaign on government time or using state resources, as Rep. Schupp ran into recently.

Today’s Missouri Ethics Commission filings raise this issue again, this time for State Senate candidate Barbara Fraser.  On her filing, we see one of Sen. Joan Bray’s legislative staffers being paid by the campaign for mailings and fundraising.  It is important to find out whether or not any of this campaign work was done on state time.
