This author had no idea that the government corruption in Southeast Missouri is tagged as the Tilley Shuffle, until today. It appears Missouri Governor Greitens is misusing his huge campaign contribution trove to purchase Cardinal tickets, the term then became clear!
“When it comes to taking dead aim at corruption in Jefferson City, Gov. Eric Greitens is shooting blanks.
We know this not because his proposed lobbyist gift ban is languishing in legislative no man’s land.
We know this not because he refuses to tell taxpayers how much big corporations potentially seeking favors each paid for his inaugural party or fund his many flights to Washington.
We know this because Greitens has embraced the Tilley Shuffle.”
One might think that Eric Greitens ran a modest campaign, by just a cursory search of the Missouri Ethics database.
But a deeper search tells a different story!

Sadly, this author learned about the “ruse” of the Tilley Shuffle on her own through her campaign running for office for State Representative of Missouri District 145.
I decided to run, not that I wanted to be a politician, but I knew there was something terribly wrong within our government. I believed it to be my ‘civic duty’ as well as I took an Oath of service, when I joined the U.S. Marine Corps.
Our Constitutions, both state and federal are being ignored. The Oaths of Office were being disregarded and laws were being crafted that are not only hard to understand but being named something that they are not! The deceit is real! Our elected are abusing their authority and oath!
While running for office I discovered the ‘election rigging’ that I believe was designed to put Hillary Clinton into office, but also our governor and various state positions and unconstitutional laws!
So what does the ‘election rigging‘ and the ‘Tilley Shuffle‘ have to do with MO Senator Gary Romine and Rick Francis, one might ask?
…”Missouri Growth’s first actual donation to a state representative came in September 2014. It gave $750 to Rep. Jeremy Lafaver, D-Kansas City. In October, the committee received $1,000 from another committee Tilley used to control as speaker, MO Leadership Committee, and $7,500 from a 501-c-4 nonprofit called Missourians for Low Energy Costs. That committee was the subject of previous Missouri Ethics Commission complaints accusing it of being a shill for Noranda.”
Gary Romine funds MO Leadership Committee AND then contributes seed money to other politicians.

Someone in MOGov needs to grow a pair and deal with this issue! As it is clear, there are no Ethics, nor honor in our MOLeg!
