Schmitt campaign mailer photo draws ire of Missouri Supreme Court

(AP) The Missouri Supreme Court says judges are “disappointed” that a mailer sent in support of Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s U.S. Senate campaign used a photo of Schmitt and three judges.

The mailer was not from Schmitt’s campaign but from a group supporting his bid for the Republican nomination in the August primary. A Schmitt campaign spokesman says the mailer “was an independent expenditure not authorized by Attorney General Eric Schmitt or his U.S. Senate campaign.”

The court says in a news release that the photo was taken by a member of the attorney general’s staff during a public event last year and should not be taken as an endorsement.
