2 notes

Former Missouri House Speaker Steve Tilley was a great friend to payday lenders during his time in office, racking up over $70,000 in donations from the industry. The Kansas City star reports that all that back-scratching is paying off: “Documents filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission show that Tilley recently became a lobbyist for the Online Lenders Alliance,” a payday lender trade association.
The revolving door spins again.
