Aide to Missouri Politician Who Committed Suicide Is Found Dead in Apparent Suicide
By Ben Mathis-Lilley
An upsetting story out of Missouri: A former aide to a political figure named Tom Schweich—who died Feb. 26 in an apparent suicide—has been found dead in what is also thought to have been a suicide. Spence Jackson, 44, was the media director for Schweich, a former Bush administration official and state auditor who was “a frontrunner,” per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, to be the Republican party’s nominee in the 2016 Missouri governor’s race.
Schweich and Jackson were both recently involved in a strange scandal involving allegations of an “anti-Semitic ‘whisper campaign’” against Schweich perpetrated by fellow Missouri Republican John Hancock. Schweich was not, in fact, Jewish.
Schweich was a Protestant Christian. One of his grandfathers was Jewish.
FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE INDICTED “Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert agreed to pay $3.5 million in hush money to keep a person from the town where he was a longtime high school teacher silent about ‘prior misconduct’ by the Illinois Republican who once was second in line to the U.S. presidency, according to a federal grand jury indictment handed down Thursday.” Read the seven page indictment. Here’s how the Patriot Act that Hastert helped pass led to his downfall. And the biggest question is what “prior misconduct” was Hastert trying to cover up? [Daniel Marans, HuffPost]
