Phyllis Schlafly killed Odenwald's 2006 smoking ban

St. Louis mom and pop bars and restaurants should always be grateful to Phyllis Schlafly. She led a group of conservative organizations, including Casino Watch, Concerned Women for America, Missouri Family Network and Eagle Forum, that stopped County Councilman Kurt Odenwald from putting a smoking ban with a casino exemption on the ballot back in 2006. When Odenwald dropped the casino exemption due to their pressure, the smoking ban died.
