The Missouri Democratic Party today announced it has filed a formal ethics complaint against Liberty Alliance USA for violating campaign finance law and failing to register as a committee with the Missouri Ethics Commission. The complaint details how Cornerstone 1791 — the mysterious group behind Liberty Alliance USA — has violated their 501(c)(4) status by spending money and directing most of their activity towards defeating Nicole Galloway in the gubernatorial election.
“Liberty Alliance USA is nothing more than a political committee designed to defeat Nicole Galloway — and should have registered and reported as such since its launch,” said Missouri Democratic Party Executive Director Lauren Gepford. “Instead, shadowy dark money donors have used Liberty Alliance USA to illegally target Galloway in blatant violation of Missouri law. Liberty Alliance is nothing more than a dark money front for secretive big money donors to buy this election for Mike Parson.”
An analysis of the fiscal impact of Medicaid expansion in Missouri provided by the Center for Health Economics and Policy concluded that “by 2024 the annual savings due to expansion is estimated to be about $932 million.”
A Note from Rep. Judy Morgan
We Still Need Your Support
It's hard to ask for donations during this time but here are the facts:
- A number of fundraising events we had planned for the spring and summer had to be postponed or outright cancelled
- Our success in candidate recruitment means we have places all over the county that need resources so we can win in November
- Reaching voters is now harder than ever
- Republicans and their big money PACs allow them to run TV and digital ads with no accountability
- There are now less than 200 days to the general election
While we are very optimistic that Truman Gala (which is our biggest source of funding every year) will be held on September 26, we need funds to keep operations going through the summer. The JCDC minimizes overhead and makes every effort to direct our revenue toward our common goal: reaching and persuading voters to win general elections.

To promote social distancing and protect Missourians from COVID-19 transmission, the town hall will be held via livestream with a Q&A, today.
