In the last decade, the Missouri/Kansas District of the Communist Party USA has made a concerted effort to infiltrate the Missouri Democratic Party and in particular, the Missouri state legislature.
Many of Missouri’s pro-communist legislators were recruited through the communist controlled Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. This group was headed for many years by Lew Moye, a Democrat, with a long history with the Communist Party. Moye is also a former adviser to Missouri Congressman William “Lacy” Clay.
The communists have even campaigned vigorously for Missouri’s US Senator Claire McCaskill.
One of the earliest communist successes was the election of John L. Bowman to the Missouri legislature in the early 2000s.
Bowman’s career ended in 2010, with a conviction for credit card fraud, but he is still working with the communists to influence state politics.
Other notable Communist Party affiliates in Missouri State politics include:
- Former State Senator Robin Wright-Jones
- Former State Senator Rita Heard Days
- Former State Senator Maida Coleman
- Former State House member Maria Chappelle-Nadal
- Former State House member Jeanette Mott Oxford
- Former State House member Rev. James Morris
Key Missouri communists behind this infiltration include Tony Pecinovsky and campaign strategist Glenn Burleigh, a former ACORN activist who has campaigned for Claire McCaskill and personally managed the successful 2008 campaign for Robin Wright-Jones, and for State Rep. Michael Butler in 2012.
Burleigh is currently managing the campaign of St. Louis mayoral candidate Lewis Reed.
