We’ve written on this race previously:

Democratic challenger Josh Reed and his “grass rootsie” campaign will face republican incumbent Ryan Silvey and all that big money in the November general election.

Let’s take a look at those campaign finance reports. First, the second quarter 2008 campaign finance report filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission by Josh Reed (D) on July 14th:

What? No small dollar contributors? If truth in advertising were required for campaign committee names Ryan Silvey would have to change his to “Corporate Interests for Silvey” (pace our good friends in the Teamsters and Firefighters).

Where did he spend the money?:

He’s still storing something. I wonder what? His parade car?!

Silvey also filed 24 hour reports listing contributions from PACs on July 29th (pdf), July 31st (pdf), and August 4th (pdf).

This race has a grass roots populist David vs. Goliath feel to it. How about helping out David with a few stones for his sling? You all know what to do.
