$2,534,000.00? Again? Via the Missouri Ethics Commission [pdf]:

MISSOURI ETHICS COMMISSION

CONTRIBUTION OF MORE THAN $5,000.00 RECEIVED BY ANY COMMITTEE FROM ANY SINGLE DONOR – TO BE FILED WITHIN 48 HOURS OF RECEIVING THE CONTRIBUTION

MEC ID: C101013

LET VOTERS DECIDE 6/18/2010

Rex A. Sinquefield Westphalia, MO 6/16/2010 $2,534,000.00

[emphasis added]

Why $2,534,000.00? Why that amount twice? Why not just write one check for $5,068,000.00 and save the money on postage? (Okay, bad question, if you can drop that kind of cash on a right wingnuttia initiative to defund government you’re not particularly worried about the cost of postage or even a lack of public services for yourself because you don’t need to.) What’s with the $68,000.00? Is five million some kind of unlucky number? Just asking.
