…we think.

Earlier today:

…Yesterday, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

C000525 06/24/2011 UAW REGION 5 PAC Jay Nixon for Missouri PO Box 11418 St Louis MO 63105 6/24/2011 $100,000.00

[emphasis added]

That’s Jay Nixon for Missouri to the UAW Region 5 PAC. At least it went to political advocates for working people. It’s interesting, Jay Nixon’s (D) campaign has enough on hand to make a contribution like that. You don’t see republican campaigns doing that, do you?…

Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

CONTRIBUTION OF MORE THAN $5,000.00 RECEIVED BY ANY COMMITTEE FROM ANY SINGLE DONOR – TO BE FILED WITHIN 48 HOURS OF RECEIVING THE CONTRIBUTION

Missouri Lieutenant Governor Accuses Labor Professors Of “Terrorism”

April 29, 2011 2:54 pm ET – Media Matters Action Network

Conservative smear artist Andrew Breitbart has found his latest target in labor professors at the University of Missouri who, according to him, advocated union violence in their lectures. Like previous efforts to tarnish his political opponents, Breitbart’s allegations are based on “choppy, heavily edited videos” that take the speakers’ words out of context. As Media Matters notes, the videos were released a week after Breitbart announced his intention to “go after the teachers.”

Now, one of Missouri’s highest-ranking officials is embracing Breitbart’s campaign. During a radio interview yesterday, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) complained that the story isn’t getting more attention in the “lamestream media” and agreed with host Dana Loesch, editor of the Breitbart-owned website BigJournalism.com, that the context of the quotes didn’t matter. Going a step further, Kinder exclaimed, “This is terrorism. Let’s call this what it is. Industrial sabotage tactics are a form of terrorism….”

Nah, I don’t think working people are gonna write big contribution checks for Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder (r). That’d be like a chicken writing checks to Colonel Sanders.
