(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)- Missouri State Senator Rob Schaaf is not happy about being in the crossfire of a political race that he's not even involved in.
Schaaf said he filed a complaint with the Missouri Ethics Commission about advertising by a political action committee promoting the campaign of Tony Luetkemeyer, who is running for the seat Schaaf is vacating.
The state senator has been an outspoken critic of PAC's and dark money entering campaigns- and has recently come out in support of Harry Roberts, who is running against Luetkemeyer in the Republican primary for Schaaf's seat.
"This one I got just a few minutes ago. It says, 'Did you know about Rob Schaaf's ethics investigation.?' The interesting thing is that back in May, the ethics commission ruled there was no basis for that ethics investigation," Sen. Schaaf said. "They know all this, it's a big lie."
Schaaf is critical of the political action committee U.S. term limits, which has contributed several hundred thousand dollars to the Missouri Senate Conservatives Fund running the ads against him and Roberts.
