Missouri-Stipend Scandal.jpg
The St. Joseph School District, the 16th-largest school district in Missouri, has been plagued by a stipend scandal. Ballotpedia first exposed the depth of corruption over a year ago, and provided thorough coverage as the story unraveled.

Watch the video below for an in-depth run-down on the St. Joseph School District scandal.

Brittany Clingen reports on the scandal in the St. Joseph School District.

Please see Talk:Mike Enzi. The Advocate was in error. I fixed the sections in both the Vitter and Enzi articles, and you restored the incorrect version without even contacting me for discussion. If you google the key phrase, you will see that every other website which originally copied that has now corrected it. I expect you to do the same. This is an encyclopedia.

As I said, there's a difference between keeping the original insurance plan (what The Advocate stated) and keeping a subsidy (what the bill and Vitter's own press release stated). That's why those sources originally using The Advocate's phrasing of "optional for lawmakers and their employees to continue receiving the subsidized premium health benefits plans just like most large businesses" later corrected their statements. I am satisfied with your corrections to the Enzi and Vitter articles, even if you want to pretend I made some totally different 'misinterpretation'. Anyone who googles for 'stop congress exempt' or similar can see the wild claims of the "conservative" groups and press. You may claim the National Review is a "bias source" (sic), but when even it feels the need to publicly debunk such claims.... TomJx 02:54, 24 October 2013 (CDT)

Hi there

The reason I removed the tags on the Maine and Ohio Marijuana pages is to stop them appearing on the page "marijuana on the ballot" which only lists actual (as in not proposed) ballot measures.

If there is another way to remove it from this page without removing the tags please do so

Hey KaitlinE,

I am not great at these. I just left an new edit that does not allude to Jones current candidacy but does have this citation from a Los Angeles magazine. Can you look at it and help me get it right? Thanks!

Thank you for the formatting changes. I look forward to making future contributions.

Hi, regarding the updates to the "Calen Fretts" page, he is not running again in 2014. The website update on 3/18 was just to update the link to the archived campaign site from 2012, and you can see that the site still says 2012.

I keep receiving messages that my entries are blocked because, according to the notice, my IP address was used by another person who's been blocked for posting vandalism/spam.

The IP address cited in the message is *not* my IP address, however, and which I can verify.

Can this block against my contributions be removed? I'd be happy to offer my actual IP address, along with source, if needed.

Hi, you asked if I have a written reference to Bryan Lentz having three children. No, I do not. However, I saw them the other day, and there were definitely three.

Should I have refrained from correcting an entry such as this when I have only eyewitness knowledge?

I got a message that I was blocked because someone was spamming external links from my IP, but I have a static IP and I don't understand why I can't post. Help!

For someone reason my ip is blocked by you. Was trying to fix the MD-1 race page. Andy Harris is running against Bill Tilghman in the general. It incorrectly states he's running against John Laferla who lost the primary to Tilghman.

Hi Kaitlin,

Wondering why you removed the Police Chief's support from the support list on Yes on Proposition 2 in California. The link I provided was to the press release sent out by the Association. What other verification is required?

It seems my user name was blocked? I'm not sure who this user VerenaBosanquet is or how they used my ip address to spam other pages. I would like my willywill3x account to be reinstated so I may make the adjustments to my page "David Earl Williams III" (replacing the old campaign website url with the updated one) I also emailed you at your personal email address on this matter.
