Former Missouri House Speaker Owns Newspaper
JEFFERSON CITY - The former Missouri House Speaker is back at the state Capitol as a newspaper owner.
Rod Jetton's political career ended when he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in 2011 for hitting and choking a woman.
A federal grand jury also investigated Jetton over a stalled bribery inquiry.
But now, Jetton and a former campaign manager have started The Missouri Times newspaper.
