I made a political contribution to the District Attorney in my county and come to find out I am prohibited from making such a contribution. What my firm is trying to find out now is if the DA in St. Charles County (MO) is a "covered official". A covered official has something to do with "pay to play" rules.
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 2 years ago

The term "covered official" would appear to be from some statute but I would have to know which statute you are referring to before I could discuss whether the DA is a covered official or not.
