The executive director of the Missouri Democratic Party has been placed on unpaid leave while St. Louis police investigate allegations of a domestic assault.

Police said Tuesday that they were called to a home listed as the address of Matthew Teter on Sunday, when a 31-year-old man reported that he had been assaulted by a 30-year-old man at that address. Police did not release the names of the people involved in the incident because the investigation is ongoing.

A former campaign aide to Sen. Claire McCaskill has been hired as executive director of the Missouri Democratic Party.

The state party says Matthew Teter began his new role Tuesday. He'll replace Brian Zuzenak, who is leaving March 31 after a transition period.

Missouri Democrats have undergone a leadership change after losses in the 2010 elections. Former State Auditor Susan Montee took over as chairwoman of the party in December, replacing Craig Hosmer. Montee also is an ally of McCaskill.
