Report Raises Questions on Sen. Blunt’s Permanent Residence

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Does U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt live in Missouri? A new report is casting some doubt.

USA Today poured through more than a decade of records, and couldn’t figure out what Blunt considers home base.

He lists a condo in Springfield, Missouri, as home, but his wife is a lobbyist based in Washington D.C. and his son attends school there.

Since 2003, he’s also claimed a campaign office, a Springfield congressional office and his D.C. home as his permanent residence.

Blunt’s campaign told the paper he has to be in Washington for work and, while mortgaging or selling various properties in Missouri, listed a Washington address so documents could be sent there.

The Department of Revenue says one must maintain a permanent residence here and live here for at least 30 days in the previous year to be considered a resident — or — spend 183 days here if they list their permanent residence elsewhere.
