JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon has appointed one of his former deputies in the attorney general's office to serve on the Missouri Ethics Commission.
John Munich, a St. Louis-area lawyer, served as a deputy attorney general for litigation in the 1990s when Nixon was attorney general. Munich helped create the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit within the attorney general's office.
Also appointed by Nixon to the Ethics Commission is William Stoltz, president and CEO of Central Federal Savings and Loan in Rolla.
If confirmed by the state Senate, both appointees would serve until March 2016.
The Ethics Commission enforces Missouri's laws on campaign finance, lobbying and conflicts of interest for public officials.
