Oh Claire! Just Tell The Truth!

The plot in “Air Claire Gate” thickens!


Senator Claire McCaskill’s spokeswoman this evening confirmed that the Missouri Senator billed taxpayers for a purely political travel on a private plane co-owned by her family, a violation of Congressional ethics rules that deepens questions around her use of the plane.

The Misssouri Republican Party is calling for Sen. McCaskill to “open the books.”

“It is time for McCaskill to finally come clean about the network of shell companies that exist to shield her travel and her family’s business dealings from public scrutiny. If McCaskill truly believes in transparency, she should prove it by opening the books.


We got this from a source of a source, and according to our source, the source is suspect – at best. But we’re hearing that Rep. Todd Akin is frantically making fundraising calls and that an announcement is forthcoming next week. Potential senate candidate Ann Wagner has said she will make an announcement on her 2012 intentions next week.
