Democratic party candidate Zac Maggi is challenging incumbent republican Representative Scott Largent, one of the republican party’s Johnson County triplets, in the 120th Legislative District. The republican triplets – Largent, Denny Hoskins, and Mike McGhee – are so named because their districts encompass parts of the county and because they vote in reliable lockstep with the republican leadership in the General Assembly.

Zac Maggi filed his report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October, 13, 2009

Ooh look, there’s that campaign contribution goodness from the House republican leadership. Mindless obedience can be a good thing.

Ah, yes. Representative Scott Largent (r), PACman. Political action committees don’t vote. True, they can and do spend money, lots of it, but they can’t vote. Yet.
