New “Racy” Missouri Lobbying Bill

lobbying, politics

Missouri Representative Bart Korman (R) has introduced Missouri House Bill No. 2059, which would require registered state lobbyists to report sexual relations with state legislators as a gift in state disclosure documents reported to the Missouri Ethics Commission. No dollar amount or “valuation” is required to be reported in connection with the sexual relations.

Representative Korman(R) assets that the purpose of the legislation is to promote greater transparency and to deter legislators from sexual misconduct. In 2015, 2 Missouri legislators left office due to misconduct. Governor Jay Nixon (D) concurs that this bill is needed.
