Keaveny Playing from Prisoner 36607-044’s Book

December 18th, 2009 by MarkTwain · No Comments

You would think that Senator Joe Keaveny, who was elected to replaced disgraced ex Senator Jeff Smith (now Prisoner 36607-044), would have learned a little bit about ethics after seeing his predecessor carted off on federal obstruction charges.  Regrettably for Missourians, it appears he did not.

Jake Wagman of the Post-Dispatch, found that only weeks after Keaveny asked for the vote of Gregg Christian, a Democratic ward leader in the district, past associate of Keaveny, and one of  the people charged with finding a replacement for Smith, he was on Keaveny’s payroll as a consultant earning thousands of dollars.  It certainly sounds like Keaveny may have bought his way into a Senate seat.

If Senator Keaveny continues with these kind of tactics, we suspect Prisoner 36607-044 may soon have a familiar cellmate.  Buying a legislative seat is unacceptable, and the FBI should investigate the Senator’s actions.
