Yesterday, at the Missouri Ethics Commission, first, from Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) campaign:

C001135 09/26/2011 JAY NIXON FOR MISSOURI UFCW Local 655 Elect Political Fund 300 Weidman Road Ballwin MO 63011 9/26/2011 $10,000.00

[emphasis added]

Hmm. That last one is an odd amount. Do you think he emptied out his piggy bank? Well, it could be that.

Then, there’s Lieutenant Governor (R) Peter Kinder‘s campaign getting those “plus one dollar” contributions after the long drought:

Just making sure that everyone else knows about their heavy hitter contributions to the beleaguered leading republican candidate (still, not officially) for governor?
