GOP Missouri State Rep Accused Of Accepting “Sexual Favors” From Drunk Teenage Girl While On Duty As Cop

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:

A Missouri lawmaker allegedly used his position as a cop to receive a “sexual favor” from an intoxicated teenage girl in 2015 and his boss, the Pike County sheriff, is accused of attempting to obstruct a probe as the deputy ran for a seat in the Legislature last year, the Post-Dispatch has learned.

According to a report obtained from Frankford Police Chief Josh Baker in response to an open records request, state Rep. Chad Perkins, a Bowling Green Republican, allegedly accepted “sexual favors from a teenage girl while on duty” as a police officer.

Perkins, who said he is a “single man,” said his relationship with the teen was consensual. “There’s nothing to that. Nothing ever happened while I was on duty,” he said. “I live a single man lifestyle.”
