Politically Speaking: Auditor Schweich On Gubernatorial Withholds, St. Louis Public Schools And 2014

Oct 3, 2013

Every week, St. Louis Public Radio’s Chris McDaniel joins the St. Louis Beacon’s Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum to talk about the week’s politics.

On this week's show, Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich joins us to discuss the results of his case against Governor Jay Nixon. Schweich had challenged Nixon's ability to withhold budgeted money, arguing that he could only do so if revenue actually came in lower than expected. We also discuss his audit of the St. Louis Public School system, which found students were being promoted in grade level even when they weren't at the right reading level requirements. Then we discuss his CPAC speech, as well as his 2014 re-election campaign.
