The October 2011 quarterly campaign finance reports are showing up at the Missouri Ethics Commission. The active Lieutenant Governor campaign committees:

Since former State Auditor Susan Montee (D) just formed her campaign committee there isn’t a quarterly report:

Date Established: 10/3/2011

Becky Plattner (D) filed her quarterly report on October 10th:

REPORT SUMMARY

PLATTNER FOR LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR [pdf] 10/10/2011

2. All Monetary Contributions Received This Period $250.00

10. Expenditures made by cash or check this period $1,767.30

27. Money On Hand at the close of this reporting period $14,444.89

34. Total Indebtedness at the Close of This Reporting Period $20,000.00

[emphasis added]

That doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the campaign plan.

There is one republican and an all too familiar representative of the lunatic fringe in the race now representing the Constitution Party:

REPORT SUMMARY

ELECT CYNTHIA DAVIS [pdf] 10/12/2011

2. All Monetary Contributions Received This Period $995.40

10. Expenditures made by cash or check this period $636.97

27. Money On Hand at the close of this reporting period $983.17

34. Total Indebtedness at the Close of This Reporting Period $30,000.00

[emphasis added]

You, too, can run for Lieutenant Governor if you have $30,000.00 in campaign debt. This is priceless:

B. Itemized Expenditures All Over $100

State of Missouri Ethics Commision [sic] Jefferson City MO 65102 8/17/2011 Late filing fee $150.00

This inspires confidence in the campaign, no?

And, finally, the big money, for Steve Tilley (r) who filed his report on October 17th:

REPORT SUMMARY

FRIENDS OF TILLEY [pdf] 10/17/2011

2. All Monetary Contributions Received This Period $575,940.00

34. Total Indebtedness at the Close of This Reporting Period $0.00

[emphasis added]

$1,544,024.01 cash on hand. That ain’t no typo. It is good to be the Speaker.
