The Riverfront Times reports the email was sent this week to Stream's fellow House GOP members, quoting Winston Churchill as a warning about the Muslim faith.
In what a Riverfront Times blog calls a "bizarre email," a message sent to House Republicans this week from Missouri State Representative Rick Stream's account cites Sir Winston Churchill's thoughts about Islam. The email, which Patch confirmed was forwarded by Stream, from Kirkwood, quotes Churchill: "Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it." The email adds at the end, "Churchill saw it coming..." RFT reports the email was sent from email@example.com late Tuesday night. Click here to read the email in its entirety, according to RFT. A request for comment from Stream's office about the content of the message has gone unreturned. …

The battle for the newly drawn Missouri House of Representatives 90th District came down to 247 votes.
Voters re-elected incumbent Rick Stream (R-Kirkwood) to represent Kirkwood in the newly drawn Missouri House of Representatives 90th District Tuesday. Stream captured 11367 votes to Democratic challenger Deb Lavender's 11120 for a 247 vote (1.1 percent) difference. Candidates can ask for a recount if the difference between votes is 1 percent or less. The nail-biting results didn't surprise Stream's campaign manager Charles Hinderliter. "We were expecting it to be a close race," Hinderliter said. "We predicted a win going into tonight but an uncomfortably close win." This will be Stream's fourth term serving the Kirkwood area. "It's an honor to be re-elected again," said Stream, who on Tuesday night was suffering from laryngitis and had …

A letter to the editor from a past member of the St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees.
Saturday, November 3, 2012
To the Editor: On October 25, police in Belleville arrested a student for bringing a gun on campus of Southwestern Illinois College. Rick Stream voted to allow concealed weapons to be brought on college campuses in the state of Missouri. At the time, I was chair of the board of trustees for St. Louis Community College. When I learned the Missouri House had passed that measure, I called every college president in our state. They collectively lobbied the state senate; the measure was stopped. Stream endorsed Todd Akin. He voted against women having health care choices. He voted against teachers’ tenure, as well as stripping teachers of their seniority. A St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial pointed out Steve Tilley former speaker of the house …

Rep. Rick Stream (R-Kirkwood) has filed legislation that would require insurance companies to provide complete treatment.
The following article was submitted by the Missouri Eating Disorder Association. Eating Disorders are the most fatal of all mental illnesses, yet those suffering from this disease are routinely denied complete treatment and have limited available resources available to them. Families, too, suffer greatly as they watch those they love struggle to recover. Add to these factors, enormous stigma and secretiveness and you have a system that not only doesn’t help, but it actually perpetuates this disease. The incidence of eating disorders grows every year, and today boys and women over 40 are the fastest growing populations. Eating disorders are highly treatable, but treatment is purported to be expensive. A cost-analysis by the Missouri …
