Lawsuits filed by the Missouri Attorney General's office against three companies that provide phone services have been settled, and their customers in Missouri will receive nearly $300,000 in refunds.
The companies were accused of engaging in a practice called "cramming." Joe Bindbeutel, chief of the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division, says cramming occurs when a phone company levies unauthorized charges onto its customers' monthly bills.
The next Attorney General of Missouri will be one of three men: Democratic incumbent Chris Koster, Libertarian Dave Browning, or Republican Ed Martin. Host Don Marsh talks with Ed Martin. He is an attorney and former Chief of Staff to Governor Matt Blunt.
Prior to running for Attorney General, Martin was vying for the U.S. Senate and the Second Congressional District.
Host Don Marsh talks with the Libertarian candidate for Missouri Attorney General Dave Browning.
Dave Browning said incumbent Chris Koster has done a decent job “but is an unrepentant liberal.” He said Republican challenger Ed Martin doesn’t know what he’s doing. “I think the voters of Missouri need to have a chance to vote for someone who is conservative but not insane,” said Browning.
