KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Four years after Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill co-sponsored legislation targeting tax havens such as the Cayman Islands, her husband began investing in a hedge fund registered in the Caribbean nation _ an investment that has paid off handsomely. The Kansas City Star reported Wednesday that Joseph Shepard has invested $1 million in Matrix Capital Management and that it has earned him between $230,000 and $2.1 million in income.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Texts between two staffers to former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens appear to show that they used the message-deleting app Confide to communicate about state policy. Screenshots obtained by The Kansas City Star show one former staffer texting another that he can't see edited talking points very well on Confide. Attorneys representing the former governor in a related open records lawsuit didn't immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A judge has turned down a Ferguson lawmaker's attempt to run for a seat in the state Senate. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Cole County Circuit Judge Daniel Green's ruling on Tuesday dismissed Rep. Courtney Curtis' bid to run in the Democratic primary election in August. The Missouri Democratic Party barred Curtis from the race because he didn't pay $114,000 in fines for violating campaign finance laws.

KIRKWOOD, Mo. (AP) - A 71-year-old St. Louis man and his adult son are both charged with assault for allegedly beating up a Pokemon Go competitor who accused them of cheating. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a bystander's video captured the skirmish Monday in Kirkwood, a St. Louis suburb. Charges were filed Tuesday against Robert Matteuzzi and 31-year-old Angelo Matteuzzi. Both are jailed on $15,000 bail.
