Previously: Campaign Finance: Did Rex forget he wrote a check the day before? (August 31, 2011)

Okay, so it probably isn’t a reporting system glitch. Rex Sinquefield makes his third identical large dollar contribution to the same candidate in as many days.

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

C031260 DOOLEY FOR ST LOUIS COUNTY [pdf] 9/1/2011

Rex Sinquefield

244 Bent Walnut

Westphalia, MO 65085

Retired

9/1/2011

$5,001.00

[emphasis added]

Wouldn’t it be easier just to write a single check for $15,003.00 rather than three checks for $5001.00 over three days? To what purpose the latter?
