State Representative charged with stealing campaign funds

Wednesday, 06 November 2013 13:30 Published in Local News

A Missouri State Representative is facing felony charges for misuse of campaign money.

Prosecutors say Representative Steve Webb of Florissant stole campaign funds and spent them on himself. The Post-Dispatch reports that Webb took a campaign contribution, deposited it in a political account, then moved the money to a personal account. Webb is the minority deputy whip. The paper also reports that Webb has taken nearly $29,000 in gifts from lobbyists--there is no limit on the amount of gifts he can take. About $18,000 of that amount has come from utility companies. Webb serves on the House Utilities Committee.

Webb's lawyer says he will surrender himself to authorities when an arrest warrant is issued.
