JEFFERSON CITY —Text messages obtained by The Star reveal a sexually charged relationship between House Speaker John Diehl and a college freshman in a Missouri Capitol internship program that shut down abruptly last month.

The conversations unveil a flirty rapport and suggest an intimacy between arguably the state’s most influential lawmaker and a young woman taking some pleasure in a secret association.

The conversations unveil a flirty rapport and suggest an intimacy between arguably the state’s most influential lawmaker and a young woman taking some pleasure in a secret association.

The texts show occasional efforts by Diehl and the intern to meet in person. They range from mundane chatter, about boring meetings and dreading speeches, to the more sexually suggestive.

Some of the texts below:



The university the young woman attends in Joplin pulled its four interns out of the intern program in Jefferson City a month ago.

This guy is the most boring sexter ever. No sense of eroticism whatsoever.

It seems like, if only for the moment, state Republicans are circling the wagons around Diehl. But there is speculation that he will be forced to resign if the texts are in fact from him(as they pretty much appear to be).

Interestingly. John Combest hasn't posted any links to stories about it on his Missouri politics website.

But is it honestly going to effect their electoral fortunes in the state legislature? I would assume probably not.

If Democrats win a few seats in the KC suburbs, St. Louis County, and Jefferson County, they could gain enough seats to sustain vetoes should Democrats hold the governor's mansion. Democrats should have not much better in the 2012 legislative elections, but Nixon didn't campaign for any of the close house seats.

Will he get a primetime speaking slot at the RNC like Bill Clinton does for the DNC?

If you're going to criticize Bill Clinton, you better criticize the huge number of Republicans who had affairs during, or shortly after/before the Lewinsky scandal.

There will be a leadership election tomorrow, on the last day of the legislative session.

Richardson elected Speaker of the Missouri House.

He's a Republican from Poplar Bluff, the largest town in the bootheel. Democrats in the State Legislature seem to like him much more than Diehl, at least for the moment.

Depending upon your definition of the Bootheel, Poplar Bluff isn't the largest town in Southeast Missouri: among cities in the 8th District, it falls behind Cape Girardeau and Rolla, respectively, according to the 2010 Census; 2013 estimates show that it has fallen to fourth place now behind Farmington. Just throwing that out there Smiley

I don't consider Cape or Rolla in the Bootheel, but I guess it could be quibbled over.

Yeah, as someone who lives near Cape, I don't personally feel like I'm in the Bootheel until after Scott City.

The republicanism in this thread is disgusting.

We don't know how many cars this family has, only that they consume 1/4 of a $60k car per year.

Good luck being a Dem near Cape "Limbaugh" Girardeau, that's a tough road to hoe. But yeah, I'm in SE MO too, and the Bootheel doesn't really start until Scott County, at least culturally.

Poplar Bluff -- where US 60 and US 67 meet -- due south of St. Louis, about due east of Springfield, and a bit west of due north from Memphis.
