Ex-politicians reflect on falls from grace

Friday, 09 August 2013 07:39 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two former Missouri political leaders are teaming up to share the lessons of their high-profile falls from grace.

 

   Former Missouri House Speaker Rod Jetton and ex-state senator Jeff Smith each wrote a chapter in a new book called "The Recovering Politician's Twelve Step Program to Survive Crisis." They appeared at a University City pizzeria in a recent promotional appearance.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/15UonUO ) reports that the one-time political adversaries are now contrite about their mistakes.

 

   Smith is a Democrat who served nearly a year in prison for lying to federal investigators after an unsuccessful 2004 campaign for Congress.

   Jetton, a Republican, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and received probation following a 2009 consensual sexual encounter in which a woman claimed he choked her into unconsciousness.
