EXCLUSIVE: Sen. McCaskill's Husband's Businesses Benefitted From $20 Million in Stimulus Funds

McCaskill/Shepard photoAn analysis of public records by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has found more than $20 million in federal stimulus funds benefitting real estate projects financially tied to Joseph Shepard, husband of Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.

Earlier this month, the Associated Press published an analysis, stating, "businesses affiliated with the husband of Senator Claire McCaskill have received almost $40 million in federal subsidies for low-income housing developments during her first five years in office..."

The NLPC analysis released today showed more than $20 million in financial benefits from the federal stimulus law to real estate projects associated with McCaskill's husband, with all of the $20 million benefitting projects different than those identified by the Associated Press story.
