The republican robocalls:

HRCC robocall in the 121st Legislative District: desperation and homophobia (October 27, 2010)

The Missouri HRCC steps in it with homophobic robocalls (October 28, 2010)

And we followed the money.

The Missouri House republican Campaign Committee (HRCC) filed a “no name” report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October 29th. There are some enlightening expenditures:

GOP robocall attacks Cole’s ‘family values’

Warrensburg – Rep. Denny Hoskins sought to distance himself Thursday from a robocall barrage targeting his Nov. 2 Democratic opponent….

….Hoskins said in a prepared statement. “I did not pay for, approve or have any knowledge of the robocall, nor do I condone its message….”

A photo taken today in Warrensburg, Missouri in the 121st Legislative District:

Why, that’s just across the street from Denny Hoskins’ place of business, complete with a campaign sign!

So, who is the representative from the 146th Legislative District?:

Representative Darrell Pollock, a Republican, represents part of Laclede and Camden County (District 146) in the Missouri House of Representatives. Rep. Pollock is a small business owner in Lebanon….

…He has two children, Stephen….

Where have we seen that name before? Oh, wait…someone is in the employ of the HRCC:

Is someone working for the HRCC driving dad’s car around the 121st and 124th Legislative Districts? Around the same time as those robocalls? Just asking.
