Despite investigation – MO House speaker says he can still lead

Missouri House Speaker Dean Plocher says he is confident that he can still lead the lower chamber in this new session of the legislature. 

His comment follows a committee in his chamber reportedly investigating him for months. 

“That’s all doom and gloom and just drama,” says Plocher. “I want to get past the drama. I believe the drama will be behind us shortly. Now what the Senate does, that’s their ball game altogether.”  

The nature of the investigation is unknown and so is the timeline for the House Ethics Committee to wrap up its work.
