Missouri Republicans have filed a formal complaint with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics in Washington, D.C., pressing its case that US Senate candidate Claire McCaskill hasn’t fully disclosed her finances. The 10-page complaint charges Democrat Claire McCaskill has failed to fully disclose her assets, hiding millions from husband Joseph Shepard’s real estate dealings. McCaskill has reported a net worth of between $13-and-30 million. The complaint claims the McCaskill Campaign has had multiple violations of federal law and ethics rules and that it has not forthrightly outlined all of Shepard’s holdings. Campaign spokesman, Adrianne Marsh, says McCaskill has fully complied. She claims the Ethics Committee has told her personally that it is satisfied with what the campaign has provided it. Missouri Republican Party Executive Director, Jared Craighead, dismisses such assurances. He says the only information that has been presented as from the committee has come from the McCaskill campaign. Craighead says McCaskill can’t speak for the committee, only the committee can announce it is satisfied with the filings and the case is closed. Craighead considers the case before the Ethics Committee open. He says the letter, and its attachments, asks the committee to force the McCaskill campaign to further disclose the sources and values of the McCaskill family holdings. Marsh says Republicans are simply trying to distract voters’ attention from the issues, because they can’t win on the issues.
