    The criticism comes from a ruling she made against a proposed hog operation near the Arrow Rock historic site.

    A voter report-card mailer meant to grade Missouri residents on how often they vote compared to their neighbors has some in the state claiming it’s an invasion of privacy.

    Grow Missouri sent the mailers this week days before the Nov. 4 election as a way to encourage residents to vote in the state’s first general election in nearly a quarter-century that doesn’t feature a race for president, U.S. Senate or governor.

    The conservative group is financed by Rex Sinquefield, the state’s most prominent political donor.
