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.

Hello Starchild,

Thank you for your additions to City of San Francisco Sugary Drink Tax (November 2014). After doing some quick research, I could not verify this information. Please provide citations for the information that you added. Please also take a moment to review Ballotpedia's conflict of interest policy. Thank you. KaitlinE (talk) 22:44, 19 August 2014 (CDT)

Thank you for contributing to Ballotpedia.

You recently added some information to an article without providing a source such as a citation or footnote.

It is important to provide a citation or reference to justify adding information so that readers can assess the legitimacy of the information for themselves.

This tutorial explains in detail how to add footnotes.

Ballotpedia staff has added references to the information you recently added on Ballotpedia. In the future, the information you add will be removed if you do not provide a source.

Thank you!

Welcome to Ballotpedia.

If you are affiliated with some of the people, campaigns, or organizations you have written about on Ballotpedia, you may have a conflict of interest. Editing where there is a conflict of interest, or where such a conflict might reasonably be inferred, is strongly discouraged. If you have a conflict of interest, you should avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, your campaign or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.

If you have a conflict of interest, but you want to add information in a spirit of impartiality consistent with Ballotpedia's goals, please identify yourself on the "talk" or "discussion" page of any articles you edit. Editors who fit these descriptions should particularly take care to identify themselves:

  • If you work for a public relations agency or political consulting firm that has been retained to promote one side or the other of a ballot proposition or a political campaign of a candidate for elected office.
  • If you work for a campaign committee that is supporting one side or the other of a ballot measure, or one candidate or another in a campaign for elective office.
  • If you work for a political campaign that has some special interest in a particular event covered on Ballotpedia.
  • If you work for an organization and you are editing an article on Ballotpedia about that organization, or about an organization that yours is in conflict with.
Thank you.

Hello Starchild,

Thank you for contribution to Ballotpedia's City of San Francisco Sugary Drink Tax (November 2014) page. I had to revert your contributions since that did not conform to the Ballotpedia's format. Since you and your organization do oppose the measure, please email the Local Ballot Measures Project staff writer. He will add the information to the page.
