Over the summer, Jane Dueker called a candidate for Missouri attorney general "a dispshit" because he apparently didn't know that his name was on a U.S. Supreme Court brief. And she's probably regretting her wording, because it turns out she's guilty of a similar sin — and now the dipshit-shoe is on the other foot.
A well-known lobbyist and attorney in St. Louis, Dueker has spent the past few weeks rebuffing accusations that she is fronting for the payday-loan industry. The claims revolve around Dueker's decision to file an ethics complaint against St. Louis Alderwoman Cara Spencer, who both has a day job battling predatory lenders and is backing two board bills that would crack down on their practices. (After a review, the Missouri Ethics Commission dismissed the complaint earlier this month.)
