A St. Louis newspaper reports a woman in Sedalia asked the prosecutor there last year to charge a leading State Senator with making unwanted advances toward her. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the prosecutor later closed the case against Senator Jim Mathewson without filing chargesafter the woman’s lawyer said she believed it would be best not to prosecute the case. Mathewson denies any inappropirate contact with the woman, says the police investigation was thorough, and adds he considers it a dead issue. The woman has told the newspaper she doesn’t want to talk about it.
