Dirty, Dirty Claire McCaskill – Husband Joe Shepard Awarded $20 Million in Stimulus to Benefit His Real Estate Projects

Claire McCaskill’s husband received over $20 million in Stimulus cash for his real estate projects.
Senator McCaskill at the time had influence over federal policy that directly affected her family’s income.

Missouri royalty – The rest of the country has suffered but Claire McCaskill and her husband Joseph Shepard have done very well these past five years.

National Legal and Policy Center

An 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.

While the AP study focused on federal subsidies going to entities listed on Financial Disclosure Reports filed by Senator McCaskill, NLPC reviewed voluminous public records involving the Missouri Tax Credit Fund, L.P. (MTCF), a business listed as an asset by Senator McCaskill on her reports.

None of the six real estate projects identified by NLPC as receiving over $20 million in federal stimulus funds were listed on McCaskill’s Financial Disclosure Reports or covered by the AP analysis.

According to McCaskill’s Financial Disclosure Reports, MTCF was listed as having an asset value of over $1 million in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Asset values are reported in broad ranges with “Over $1,000,000” being the highest category. Therefore, it is possible that the asset value of MTCF is much larger than $1,000,000.

The McCaskills make millions from their government subsidized properties each year.

  • As a Missourian, I am looking forward to celebrating the FIRING of this CORRUPT politician!

  • obfuscatenot

    McCaskill, hmm is that why they call em Mc-mansions?

    Reason #1 our nation is so screwed up- elected thieves.

    Why not go into Windfarms, be a little more subtle, a little less obvious like the Carnahans? – silly McCaskills.

    Did they ever pay the personal property tax on that plane?

    McCaskill Business Sued For Sexual Harassment

    [While Senator Claire McCaskill has engaged in political subterfuge by
    pushing a “war on women” against her opponent Representative Todd
    Akin, her husband’s Illinois business is being sued for sexual harassment.]

    Conservatives calling out McCaskill for suit against husband

    [Over the past few days the Southeast Missouri Twitter account has been bombarded with links to a blog by conservative radio personality Dana Loesch. In the blog, Loesch says McCaskill has been practicing “political subterfuge” by pushing a “war on women” against Republican opponent, Rep. Todd Akin. You might remember the outcry among liberals and many in the Republican establishment over Akin’s comments about ‘legitimate rape’ and pregnancy. Most recently, McCaskill’s campaign has come out with ads showing female rape victims who say they won’t vote for Akin.

    In Loesch’s post, she says that a female employee of the Illinois
    company Sugar Creek, owned by McCaskill’s husband Joe Shephard,
    sued the company for sexual harassment in 2009. A bench trial is
    apparently set for Oct. 30.

    The details of the harassment are pretty graphic.
    See the link to the Loesch blog to read about them.]

    and Obama’s gal Gloria is trying to draw
    a link between who?? when?? why??

    Well, much ado about nothing. Which we already knew, but it is still delightful to read Allred got shot down. It must be really hard for liars, cheats and thieves to deal with an honest individual.

    Of course they’ve done well, they’re part of the “special people”

    Claire seems to have so many TV ads on (frequency and variety) in comparison to Todd Akin–I counted 6 different ads last night ranging from veterans for Claire to “I’m the 50% candidate” in terms of conservative/liberal. Rasmussen had Claire up 8 points about a week ago.

    Also gas prices are really coming down in Missouri which will probably help her. I paid $3.09 a gallon this morning although prices aren’t as low as in Ohio. Some Ohio gas prices are now as low as 2.99 a gallon.

    Claire…you fat, hypocritical b&@$h!

    It’s amazing this drain on society can muster even one vote. What the F is wrong with people?

  • Linda #9 … the ads are driving me crazy! How she can claim what she does, which is in direct contradiction to her record, makes me scream at the tv. The gas situation is unbelievable too…

    So that’s how much a vote for Obamacare costs. $20 Million

    Residents of Missouri : PLEASE vote this dem crook out! This Obungle hand-maiden gladly voted for his botched healthcare reform and $762 billion theft from Medicare.

    It’s vital to this country’s survival that we wrest control of the Senate from Dingy Harry Reid.
    The House has sent numerous bills to the Senate – bills on tax reform, jobs, military benefits — Harry pockets them and won’t even allow a vote. He is the MAJOR obstacle to moving legislation forward. The cowardly old fossil must be stripped of his power. He deserves a special prosecutor to look into Harry’s ‘sweet’ deals involving federal lands that were acquired by his son. How did Dingy amass a personal fortune of over $10 million
    on a Senator’s salary?? Clipping coupons? Ties to organized crime??

    Turn that “Searchlight” on Dingy and see what is there. By the way, where are Dingy’s tax returns for the past 10 years ?????

    Nothing can happen to make me vote for this woman.
    Her name always makes me think of John Bender…
    “It’s a family name.”
    “It’s a fat girl’s name.”

    Claire needs to go — She lied. She cheated. She got taxpayers’ money for her husband’s business. But, the worse thing she did was when she voted for Obamacare. WE CANNOT REPEAL OBAMACARE IF THE REPUBLICANS DON’T WIN THE MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE. And, of course, we need Mitt Romney in the White House. We must win the Executive and Legislative branches in order to prevent the Judicial Branch become dominated by Liberal judges — in the Supreme Court as well as all of the other Federal courts.

    Win or lose, special prosecutor?

    WAIT! Here’s more:

    STATE AUDITOR CLAIRE MCCASKILL (D-Missouri) has cast herself as a champion of “strong, small town values” in her 2006 challenge to incumbent Republican Senator Jim Talent. A mere twenty-three days before the election, in a race which could decide control of the Senate, McCaskill has nearly succeeded in hiding the fact that her history, as well as that of her known associates, reveals just the opposite.

    In April of 2002, her fourth year as State Auditor, McCaskill married St. Louis businessman Joseph Shepard who, like her, was a veteran of an extremely troubled previous marriage.

    At a campaign event this September, which was attended by President Clinton, McCaskill introduced her second husband as one of the “people that make my life work, the people that establish my values on this planet, the people that I love more even than this state I live in.” (video below)

    One can only assume that Claire McCaskill knows about her husband’s history of gross domestic violence and spousal abuse – and one can only wonder what part of her “values” that established…..

    I thought Joe Biden was in charge of making sure the stimuli were not wasted. Or maybe he thought he did…

    At any rate, I’m sure Claire will claim that this is an “education problem” and her MO hicks are too dumb to understand why her getting rich is good for them.

    It should be a stimulating conversation!
