Differing accounts emerge after auditor’s suicide

Jefferson City, MO ( KTRS ) A Republican donor and operative have different recollections about whether the Missouri GOP chairman made negative religious remarks about Missouri state auditor Tom Schweich before he killed himself.

Republican donor David Humphreys released a signed affidavit Thursday saying that John Hancock told him on Nov. 24 that Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich was Jewish.

Humphreys says it seemed that Hancock was implying that was a negative attribute as Schweich was running for governor.

But Republican operative Paul Mouton says he also was at that meeting and didn’t hear Hancock say anything about Schweich being Jewish.

Hancock denies making such comments at the meeting.

Schweich fatally shot himself Feb. 26, just minutes after calling a press conference.
