“I want to ensure that Missouri’s tax dollars are working for the people — not political insiders and special interests.”
ST. LOUIS – Republican David Wasinger has filed paperwork with the state to begin his campaign for Missouri State Auditor.
“After the encouragement of my family and friends and leaders from around the State, I have am launching a campaign for Missouri State Auditor,” said Wasinger, a successful CPA and lawyer based in St. Louis. “With trust in government at an all time low, I think it’s important to have an Auditor focused on keeping government working for the people, and not the other way around. As a CPA and lawyer, I wasn’t afraid to take on the big Wall Street banks, expose their fraud against the American people and hold them accountable. We need someone in Jefferson City doing the same thing – holding politicians and government bureaucrats accountable to Missouri taxpayers. I look forward to visiting more with the great people of Missouri over the coming weeks and months.”
David Wasinger was born and raised in Hannibal, Missouri. His parents, a lawyer and a homemaker, instilled in their children the values of faith, family, and hard work. David attended the University of Missouri-Columbia on a Curators Scholarship. After graduating with an accounting degree, David passed the CPA exam while clerking for an accounting firm in Missouri. Subsequently, he attained a law degree from the Vanderbilt University School of Law. David joined a small firm in 1991 that would later become Wasinger Daming in Brentwood, Missouri.
As an independent lawyer, David’s primary area of practice is business law. He gained national recognition after the 2008 financial crisis, when he filed suit against Countrywide Home Loans. Because of David’s work, the Wall Street banks were found accountable for defrauding taxpayers of billions of dollars in defective mortgages. These cases have been recognized as among the largest and most complex in the history of the United States, leading to settlements of more than $18 billion that went back into the pockets of taxpayers.
David lives in St. Louis with his wife, Colleen, and their two sons.
