Former Gov. Roger Wilson made a mistake and he admitted it. His problem was that his mistake also violated a law that he should have been aware of since he was a veteran of politics and understood the principles of ethics as to political donations.

Wilson entered a guilty plea to a charge of misusing money to make a political donation. He was given two years’ probation, must perform 100 hours of community service, pay a fine of $5,000, repay half of a $5,000 political contribution involved in the case, and pay a $2,000 fine to the Missouri Ethics Commission.
