The state of Missouri and the city of St. Louis will go in front of the state Supreme Court on Thursday to argue over who can decide where city employees live.

Missouri Congressman Todd Akin has been living at one address in St. Louis County but voting from another.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday that Akin has been voting from the address of his family homestead in Town and County, even though he moved a few years ago to a home in Wildwood.

Both addresses are within Akin's congressional district.
