Tip Line Buzzing With Rumor: Jerry Hunter Is Not Publisher of MOPNS

July 26th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

The Missouri Political News Service tipline has been buzzing with a strange rumor lately. Readers, whom we assume are political insiders, have been asking us if prominent African American Republican attorney Jerry Hunter, “secretly runs MOPNS.” Hunter, a partner with powerhouse law firm Bryan Cave in St. Louis, is a confidante to both Governor Blunt and Housing Secretary Al Jackson. I can assure you that these rumors are false. Jerry Hunter IS NOT involved with the Missouri Political News Service in any way.

Jerry Hunter has gained a reputation as a rainmaker in Republican circles. Often giving thousands of dollars during an election cycle, Hunter’s wishes are often heard. It is widely speculated that Mr. Hunter recommended to Governor Blunt his new conservation board appointee Don Johnson. Johnson is the first African American to serve on the Conservation Board.
