Republican US Senator Roy Blunt stopped by our KTRS Studios this morning. Speaking with host McGraw Milhaven, Blunt says as co-chair of the Ag committee he's pushing legislation to get essential workers like food safety inspectors to show up for work.

Under sequestration, the law would change and meat inspectors would not have to show up, which Blunt says could threaten the jobs of thousands of food industry workers across the country.

Blunt says that "any furloughs or layoffs of USDA inspectors would threaten 500,000 private-sector jobs at the processing facilities. If all of the inspectors take the mandated 11 furlough days in place for many federal workers, he said the result would be a loss of $400 million on take-home pay for the workers at the processing plants.

Blunt met with the 130 employees at St. Louis' Volpi Meat Company on Monday about his push as co-chair of the Agricultre Appropriations committee to get essential workers to report to work.

Akin's "legitimate rape" remark featured in TV drama

Tuesday, 26 March 2013 11:23 Published in Local News
Former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin's comment about legitmate rape during his campaign last year for US Senate is now a part of a television drama.

Wednesday night's episode of Law & Order's SVU features a female sports reporter who is raped by a co-worker, becomes pregnant, but decides to keep the child.

You may recall Akin's comments on rape and abortion during his run for US Senate were made in an interview with Fox 2's Charles Jaco. Akin says,"First of all, from what I understand from doctors, if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

The television show promo announces, "Ripped from the headlines, words that set off a national controversy..."

The episode features the rapist being tried for the crime. An "expert" witness is then seen uttering Akin's comment.

The episode airs Wednesday night at 8 on KSDK Channel 5(NBC).

Former CEO of Mamtek released from Missouri jail

Tuesday, 26 March 2013 10:42 Published in Local News
MOBERLY, Mo. (AP) - The former CEO of a failed artificial sweetener facility has been released from a Missouri jail after posting $10,000 bail while awaiting trial on theft and fraud charges.

Officials at the Randolph County jail say Bruce Cole was released Monday. He faces one theft charge and four counts of securities fraud stemming from the financial collapse of a Mamtek U.S. facility in Moberly in 2011.

Moberly had issued $39 million in industrial development bonds to help finance the construction of the facility. Among other things, Cole is accused of diverting bond revenues to avoid foreclosure on a home in Beverly Hills, Calif.

He had been held on $500,000 bond until a judge reduced the amount last week.
