Grounds for disciplinary action against licensee.

313.052. A holder of any license shall be subject to imposition of penalties, suspension or revocation of such license, or other action for any act or failure to act by himself or his agents or employees, that is injurious to the public health, safety, good order and general welfare of the people of the state of Missouri, or that would discredit or tend to discredit charitable bingo operations in Missouri or the state of Missouri unless the licensee proves by clear and convincing evidence that he is* not guilty of such action. The commission shall take appropriate action against any licensee who violates the law or the rules and regulations of the commission. Without limiting other provisions of sections 313.005 to 313.085, the following acts or omissions may be grounds for such discipline:

(2) Failing to comply with any rule, order or ruling of the commission or its agents pertaining to bingo;

(3) Receiving or purchasing goods or services from a person or business entity who does not hold a supplier's or manufacturer's license issued pursuant to sections 313.005 to 313.085, but who is required to hold such license by the provisions of sections 313.005 to 313.085 or the rules and regulations of the commission;

(4) Associating with, either socially or in business affairs, or employing persons of notorious or unsavory reputation or who have extensive police records, or who have failed to cooperate with any officially constituted investigatory or administrative body and would adversely affect public confidence and trust in gaming;

(5) Employing in any bingo operation any person known to have been found guilty of cheating or using any improper device in connection with any bingo game;
