   St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley will have to try again to fill a vacant seat on the Board of Police Commissioners.  That after the County Council rejected one of two nominees Tuesday night.  

   The council unanimously approved former Hazelwood Mayor T.R. Carr, but refused to seat former MSD chief Robert Baer.  

   Republican Councilman Greg Quinn said that his objections had centered on Baer's connection to Dooley campaign manager John Temporiti.  Quinn suggested that Baer's appointment was part of a scheme to fire Police Chief Tim Fitch in retaliation for the chief calling in the FBI to investigate the Gregory Sansone-Police Crime Lab contract scandal.

   Dooley called Quinn's reasoning "insulting."

   Two seats remain vacant on the police board.
