TWMP: Jay Ashcroft, St. Louis County election problems, and the earnings tax


On the next episode of This Week in Missouri Politics, Secretary of State candidate Jay Ashcroft comes onto the show to talk about the election debacle in St. Louis County, SJR 39 and the photo voter ID.

Host Scott Faughn also welcomes the opinion maker panel made up of Missourians for a Balanced Energy Future Executive Director Irl Scissors, St. Louis City Alderwoman Donna Baringer, conservative operative David Barklage and St. Louis County Councilman Mark Harder. They discuss the St. Louis County elections and its impact on the race for Senate, the defeat of the earnings tax repeal in St. Louis and Kansas City, and the governor’s race heating up on both ends of the political spectrum.
