Senator Roy Blunt isn’t just raising eyebrows after naming his lobbyist son, Andy Blunt, as his campaign manager — he’s raising his son’s client numbers.
In the past nine months, Andy Blunt has added seven new clients to his already packed roster, including the University of Missouri, which is paying him $10,000 a month, and the Missouri Cable Telecommunications Association, which hired him last week to serve as its executive director. In all, the younger Blunt now has 36 clients, according to a review of Missouri Ethics Commission filings. Lobbyists do not have to report their fees, so it’s impossible to tell how much Blunt earns from his Jefferson City advocacy.
But don’t worry, Andy swears there is a “bright line” between his campaign work and his lobbying on behalf of his clients.
