Missouri State Senate race turns personal over autism

(KMOX) — Claims made on a recent campaign flyer have blown up into a major issue between state Senate candidates Barbara Fraser and John Lamping.
They’re both vying for the seat being given up by Joan Bray, who’s being term-limited.

Fraser sent out a mailer saying Lamping was against health care coverage for children with autism.

Turns out Lamping’s 19-year-old daughter has a form of autism.

“Its amazing that my opponent says this is something that I’m running on,” says Lamping. “She’s fabricated this whole thing.”

To which Fraser replies, “Mr. Lamping proposal to let insurance companies sell policies across state lines would absolutely one-hundred percent allow insurance companies to deny coverage for autism.”
