Not enough people read these expense reports (heck, not enough people know how ridiculous the campaign finance laws are in Missouri), so i’ll try my best to make up for it.

As you read this stuff, remember one thing.. these are the people who want your vote because they claim to be fiscally responsible.

We’re gonna start with HRCC spending for Wednesday October 27th, the day the Republican robocalls invaded many Missouri homes.

Victory Enterprises 5200 30th St SW Davenport, IA 52802-3039 10/27/2010 Media Buy-Hampton $907.50

Victory Enterprises 5200 30th St SW Davenport, IA 52802-3039 10/27/2010 Media Buy-Shumake $15,092.00

Survey St. Louis, LLC PO Box 432 Saint Charles, MO 63302-0432 10/27/2010 IE Advocacy Call-Shumake $2,603.65

Survey St. Louis, LLC PO Box 432 Saint Charles, MO 63302-0432 10/27/2010 IE Advocacy Call-Houghton $2,410.40

Survey St. Louis, LLC PO Box 432 Saint Charles, MO 63302-0432 10/27/2010 IE Advocacy Call-Wyatt $2,135.25

Survey St. Louis, LLC PO Box 432 Saint Charles, MO 63302-0432 10/27/2010 IE Advocacy Call-Redmon $2,334.65

Survey St. Louis, LLC PO Box 432 Saint Charles, MO 63302-0432 10/27/2010 IE Advocacy Call-Cauthorn $2,021.25

Cauthorn’s opponent (Kelly Schultz) was hit by robocalls similar to what happened to Courtney Cole in the 121st. As was Redmon’s opponent (Keri Cottrell), as was Wyatt’s opponent (Rebecca McClanahan). McClanahan’s call was a CIA Black Propaganda call about electing her to help Obama. Cottrell was hit by the “porno” call and i’ve heard Schultz was hit by the same call as well. No reports on if that happened to Carl Thompson or Linda Witte on Wednesday as well. But having 3 of 5 focuses of “advocacy calls” wind up in the same cloud of calls is.. interesting. Right now, Survey St. Louis is my #1 suspect in regards to who put these calls out there.

Survey St. Louis does offer a sweet deal:

Win your Election!

Contact us TODAY, and we will curtail a phone program for your district. This could include; Full District ID, Phone polling, Automated Messages, Live Advocacy Calls, etc.

Do they charge per lie or will they be Ron Burgandy and read anything they give you? Apparently who ever cut the call on Keri Cottrell was too busy hiding behind the phone number for the Adair County Ambulance Service [uhhhh concealing your phone number like that isn’t illegal in Missouri yet?] to figure out how to pronounce Cottrell. Good thing they could handle Cole or Scavuzzo.

How about a look into the HRCC to Victory Enterprises pipeline? Here’s the 8 Day Report.

In the span of SIXTEEN DAYS, The HRCC gave Victory Enterprises $546,897.84.

Victory netted $111,506.50 from the HRCC on Tuesday alone. ($35,550 for the “TV Production Setup Fee”, $40,050 for a Sellars media buy [running against Sara Lampe], $19,881.50 for Kent Hampton [running against Tom Todd in Kennett], $14,635 for Leach [running against Charlie Norr] and the rest on a poll, and on radio production setup)

Essentially the HRCC hauls trucks of money to Victory every day to do the motherlode of the work for their effort to surf the rumored wave coming up on November 2nd.

Survey St. Louis got $8,802.68 for a “Voter Research Call” on October 13th, 2010 as well. No specification on if it was a robocall, poll, or where it was located. The total of the Wednesday spending was $11505.20 for five districts, so if it was concealed spending on robocalling, it may have went to four districts. So a Missouri firm with no identified leader may be the likely source of the troubles covered in-depth on this site and on Fired Up! Missouri. Although it is worth keeping in mind that there’s a gap where spending is not going to be reported until after the election.

The HRCC also gave $80000 to Public Opinion Strategies for polling. $24500 to Public Pulse Research for candidate research. $107373.65 to Pure Marketing (Including $100881.34 for media for Zack Wyatt in the 2nd and John Cauthorn in the 21st).

The one missing piece that we’re not likely to see before the election.. the details for the “advocacy calls” in the 121st, 137th (Norr/Leach), 17th (Biermann/Schneider), and 124th (Scavuzzo/Brattin). Those are the missing pieces right now. I wouldn’t totally count Victory out, since I’m sure that amongst the hundreds of thousands of dollars sent from Jeff City to Davenport, some of it was used on robocalls. But the shear oddity that three beneficiaries of the calls on Wednesday had “advocacy calls” paid for them on that day is intriguing.

Then again, will the HRCC get their money back from Survey STL for the Robocalls being halted? Victory Enterprises needs more money to build a fort in their offices and $100K from the HRCC should be enough to help them in that endeavor.
