    MIKE KEHOE’S CAPITOL REPORT
    What started as a routine week in the capitol ended as anything but routine. I hope there is never again another week like it. Missourians understand that elected officials are not perfect, but they have the rightful expectation that their elected officials, regardless of party or position, exhibit high standards of personal conduct. I was shocked to learn of the allegations against the governor and am very concerned by them. As this situation continues to evolve, I expect the governor to be honest and transparent. This can be done while respecting the privacy of the first lady and their children.
