The Missouri Bar has canceled its planned debate for the state Attorney General’s race.
The debate had been planned for Friday, October 19th, in St. Louis at the Missouri Bar’s annual meeting. Spokeswoman Farrah Fite says they canceled the debate because Republican nominee Ed Martin did not RSVP by Thursday’s deadline. She added that incumbent Democrat Chris Koster and Libertarian nominee Dave Browning had accepted the invitation.
Attorney General Chris Koster has sued a well-known St. Louis developer and his former business partner in an effort to recover tax credits that Koster says were fraudulently obtained.
In the suit filed today in Cole County, Koster alleges that in 2010 and 2011, the state Department of Economic Development awarded developers Kevin McGowan and Nathaniel Walsh nearly $2.4 million in brownfield credits to clean up lead paint at the Cupples 9 building in downtown St. Louis.
