Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder reports, via Twitter, that he visited former state Rep. T.D. El Amin, D-St. Louis, today in prison in Alabama.
El-Amin is serving time on a bribery-related charge, in a federal prison on the grounds of Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala.
A spokesman for Kinder, a Republican, said he was in the vicinity because Kinder is attending the National Lieutenant Governors' Association summer meeting this week in Biloxi, Miss.
