Description

Kansas City Star reporters proved that the speaker of the Missouri House had an ongoing, sexually charged relationship with a 19‐year‐old intern; that a state senator had a habit of harassing interns; and that women in the Capitol routinely suffered predatory treatment from a statehouse culture born out of an earlier, uglier era. Their stories led to resignations of the speaker and state senator, and reform within the legislature.
