It’s official. Just before 2:00 p.m. today in the final days of session this year, the Republican majority in the Legislature passed SJR38, overturning the will of the people and putting Clean Missouri back on the ballot.
Voters overwhelmingly passed this ethics reform and redistricting package with 62% of the vote just two years ago, and the Missouri GOP has been scheming for a way to undo it ever since.
Today, 97 of them bowed to special interests.
If they won’t honor the will of their own constituents, they shouldn’t call themselves public servants.
Even fifteen of their own colleagues took a stand in opposition.

We will fight for fair maps and campaign finance reform all over again, and we’ll crush them all over again.
If you can pitch in on this fight, contribute $10 to put the nail in the coffin on gerrymandering once and for all.
It’s a long road ahead, but we’re marching toward victory.
