Not much happened this past week in Missouri’s Senate. There’s a one-word explanation why: filibuster.

Debate over redistricting in 2001 resulted in Alderwoman allegedly urinating during filibuster.
But the St. Louis-area Republican seeks to stop other federal funding for the state, as much as $400 million.
