In 2018 the CLEAN Missouri (Amendment 1) initiative on ethics, campaign finance, lobbying, and redistricting reform passed by an overwhelming margin.

The results:

Today at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

[emphasis added]

The republican majority in the General Assembly is intent on overturning the will of the voters on CLEAN Missouri.

Obviously, not without a fight.

Listening to @KCURUpToDate as @ssnich debates opponents of CLEAN Missouri, which finally reformed redistricting and campaign finance. He’s winning by a country mile because the opposing arguments are so hilarious. We cannot allow politicians to undo these reforms.
