Previously: Campaign Finance: bad timing (November 6, 2011)
After noting Representative Mike McGhee’s (r) report of a $7,500.00 campaign contribution last week toward his senate campaign from Sam Howard Regional Group, Imagine Schools, Inc. we thought we’d take a look at other contributions over the years associated with Imagine Schools. At the Missouri Ethics Commission, from 2010:
C071342 CITIZENS FOR TISHAURA O JONES Imagine Schools-Missouri Region 1509 Washington Ave., #501 St. Louis, MO 63103 3/12/2010 $300.00
C051254 MCGHEE FOR SENATE Imagine Schools-Missouri Region 1509 Washington Ave., Ste. #501 St. Louis, MO 63103 3/27/2010 $5,000.00
C000932 REPUBLICAN CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ST LOUIS COUNTY Imagine Schools 1509 Washington Ave Suite 50 St. Louis, MO 63103 05/01/2010 $250.00
C071357 CITIZENS FOR DIECKHAUS Imagine Schools – Missouri Region 1509 Washington Avenue, Suite 501 St. Louis, MO 63103 Corporation 09/09/2010 $250.00
Representative Mike McGhee (r) was, again, the recipient of big bucks in 2010.
Representative Scott Dieckhaus (r), that paragon of support for teachers and public education? Really?
C051087 CITIZENS FOR TIMOTHY W JONES Imagine Schools Missouri Regional 1509 Washington Ave, Suite 501 St. Louis, MO 63103 9/23/2009 $500.00
C051254 MCGHEE FOR SENATE Yes Imagine Schools Missouri Regional 1509 Washington Ave., Suite 501 St. Louis, MO 63103 8/16/2008 $325.00
C061656 COMMITTEE TO ELECT REED IMAGINE SCHOOLS, INC 1005 N. GLOBE ROAD, SUITE 610 ARLINGTON, VA 22201 01/17/2007 $1,275.00
C061656 COMMITTEE TO ELECT REED IMAGINE SCHOOLS 706 N JEFFERSON ST. LOUIS, MO. 63103 06/11/2007 $1,000.00
Why did Representative Mike McGhee become a favorite? Just asking.
