The Missouri Senate voted to confirm two lawyers, Maurice Graham and former Sen. Philip Snowden, to the UM Board of Curators on Thursday, February 5. 2015.
Senator Kurt Schaefer, who represents Columbia and the University of Missouri and is a lawyer himself, said there is only one reason why the board is filled with so many lawyers.
"What raises the red flag there for me is why," said Schaefer. "Why so many lawyers? And I think you have to look at the fact that these are lawyers that also have a relationship with the governor."
