'Twas a busy week for Ass Clowns in the St. Louis vicinity. Take a gander at all six nominees below then cast your vote!

3. Walter D. Hill: The East St. Louis deputy liquor commissioner pleaded guilty this week to shaking down business owners for cash bribes and other favors.

4. Michael McPherson: The Iraqi War veteran and weapons expert accused of smuggling explosives back to the U.S. that he could use to booby-trap his friend's meth labs as a safeguard against the police.
