A St. Louis Alderman who had asked friends and supporters to help him pay for his daughter's college education is withdrawing the request.
Freeman Bosley Sr said he needs just over $14,000 to cover the cost of sending his daughter to St. Xavier University in Chicago. Bosley said he was not sure why the request was raising questions and he did not believe he did anything unethical.
Since the story broke, Bosley told the Post-Dispatch he would return all donations. The ethics commission has also said it is an odd request, but it does not seem to be illegal.
