Scott City Drama

Rep. Holly Rehder is one of three people (along with Tim Porch and Cindy Brashear) and being sued for defamation by Ron Cummins, former mayor.  Cummins is attempting a comeback…

Here’s Southeast Missourian’s reporting: Cummins filed Tuesday at city hall to return to the post of mayor after resigning in August. Cummins resigned amid a call from state Rep. Holly Rehder, R-Sikeston, for an investigation into allegations he abused his position. Cummins and current Mayor Norman Brant filed as candidates on the first day to file for the April election. Brant, who was on the council when Cummins resigned, was named by the council to serve as mayor.

Oh also – Cummins is being sued by former Scott City parks director.
