There's more fallout from a loaded handgun found inside a bathroom at the Missouri Capitol last month.
The aide to House Speaker Tim Jones who left that gun behind has resigned. The speaker's chief of staff, Tom Smith, confirmed Thursday that Dave Evans had resigned September 27.
Smith says he was satisfied with the corrective actions Evans agreed to after the incident but that Evans thought it was best for him to step down.
A 2011 Missouri law allows elected officials and their employees to carry concealed firearms inside the Capitol if they have permits.
An independent audit of St. Louis County operations shows Edward Mueth collected $3.4 million from the St. Louis County Health Department before killing himself last month.
Mueth shot himself the day before he was to meet with his bosses at the County Health Department to discuss invoicing irregularities regarding his company, Gateway Technical Solutions.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that it's still not clear what goods and services Mueth's company actually delivered to the health department over a six year period.
The audit, delivered to the County Council Thursday, found that the county had approved equipment purchases and leases from Gateway Technical Solutions at prices that were well above retail.
The audit had been commissioned before Mueth's scam came to light. A police investigation into Mueth's financial dealings with the Health Department is ongoing.
Monarch firefighters are back in the pink after a compromise was reached over fundraiser tee shirts.
The district board had banned the Breast Cancer Awareness shirts over concerns that they didn't properly identify the firefighters as Monarch employees and objections to the union logo.
The board decided Tuesday that pink shirts would be okay, if they were redesigned.
That didn't happen. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that on Wednesday, Fire Chief Tom Vineyard and board president Robin Harris worked out a deal. The firefighters can wear the tee shirts with the union logo, but they must also wear an ID badge.
