…or maybe, a delicious irony.

Today at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

C141055 05/22/2014 HANAWAY FOR GOVERNOR Citizens for a Stronger Missouri 7509 NW Tiffany Springs Pkwy Suite 300 Kansas City MO 64153 5/22/2014 $27,587.81

[emphasis added]

Well, that was a relatively short lived PAC:

“Citizens for a Stronger Missouri” is no more. That’s an interesting address.

Let’s take a look at who gave them money during their brief existence:

There’s that address again.

Could it be that that generous, albeit small, group of friends wasn’t very excited about the other republican gubernatorial candidates for 2016 and (maybe) commissioned some opinion research? Just asking.
