“Prop A” Author Not Registered

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The man who spent millions to force a vote on the earnings tax in St. Louis and Kansas City isn’t registered to vote on the measure.

Rex Sinquefield, who contributed more than $11 million in support of Proposition A, doesn’t list St. Louis as his official residence for voting purposes.

Proposition A is a statewide ballot measure requiring St. Louis and Kansas City voters to reauthorize the city’s earnings tax every five years. The vote is April 5.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that while Sinquefield has a St. Louis home, he lists a home in Osage County as his official address on voter registration rolls.

The newspaper said Sinquefield’s spokeswoman did not respond to messages seeking comment.
