Spox of Suicidal Politican Kills Himself

The media director for late Missouri state auditor and gubernatorial frontrunner Tom Schweich, who killed himself last month, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound Sunday. Spence Jackson had become known as a prominent critic of the state’s Republican chairman, who has been fingered as the source of a whisper campaign that Schweich was Jewish, and called for his resignation. Officials say there was no sign of forced entry in his home.
