Any individual may file a complaint with the Missouri Ethics Commission if that
individual believes any candidate or other individual has violated campaign finance
disclosure laws, personal financial disclosure laws, lobbying laws, conflict of
interest laws, or any violation of law, order, ordinance, or resolution dealing
with the official conduct of officials or employees. The Commission may also initiate
an investigation upon the review of reports and related records that are required
to be filed by law.
The Commission acts as an administrative body and consists of six members, each
appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the senate for a four-year
term. Commissioners serve in a non-partisan manner and not more than three can be
of the same political party. Each member must be selected from a different congressional
district and a chair and vice-chair are elected biannually. The Commission holds
commission meetings regularly to act upon complaints and investigations and issues
advisory opinions regarding the laws it enforces.
The complaint form should contain all known facts, must be filed by a natural person, notarized, and mailed or delivered in person.
