The Appellate Apportionment Commission has placed Senator David Pearce (r) and Representative Mike McGhee (r), a declared candidate for the Senate, in the same district. Senator Bill Stouffer (r) is term limited out in 2012.

Campaign Finance: bad timing (November 6, 2011)

On the same day in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Imagine Schools places top executive on leave

BY ELISA CROUCH […] Posted: Thursday, November 3, 2011 12:06 am

….The company has placed Sam Howard, executive vice president, on administrative leave pending the results of an internal investigation. Imagine spokeswoman Lori Waters said. The Post-Dispatch reported that a contracting firm that renovated Imagine school buildings had made $32,000 in payments to a “Sam Howard.” Howard had no explanation for the payments.

The Missouri Public Charter School Association is now calling for an investigation of the schools by the state auditor….

Well, that’s interesting.

And for David Pearce (r):
