Looks Like a Vacancy on the MO House Licensing Committee

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri Rep. T.D. El-Amin has pleaded guilty to a federal bribery charge for accepting a $2,100 payment from a St. Louis gas station owner.

El-Amin admitted Thursday in federal court that he solicited and accepted the payment in exchange for trying to help the gas station owner resolve problems with city government.

El-Amin is the third Democratic lawmaker from the St. Louis area to plead guilty to federal charges in the past month.
