JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri Democratic Party leader is no longer working for the state party.
Matt Teter last month was placed on unpaid leave as the party’s executive director while St. Louis police were investigating allegations of a domestic assault. The Missouri Democratic Party said Monday that Teter stopped working for the party this past Friday. It is looking for a new executive director.
A spokeswoman declined to say if Teter’s departure is related to the allegations raised last month.
Teter was hired by the Missouri Democratic Party last March after directing a nonprofit group that provides housing to people with AIDS.
