Let Voters Decide, the right wingnut functionary welfare and full employment social club and industrial complex facilitated by billionaires dropping millions for lunatic fringe initiative spamming, filed their January 2012 quarterly campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on January 17th.

In their amended Statement of Committee Organization [pdf] filed on October 20, 2011 they state they’re supporting a “Constitutional Amendment to Article X, Relating to Income, Earnings, and Sales Taxes, Versions 10, 11, 12, & 13” for the November 6, 2012 general election. Rough translation: We want to gut the budget of the State of Missouri.

Forty-three individual contributions were made to the committee. There were two $10 contributions, one $20 contribution, fourteen $25 contributions, one $28 contribution, nine $29 contributions, seven $48 contributions, five $50 contributions, one $75 contribution, two $100 contributions, one $10,000 contribution, and one $1,300,000 contribution.    

Why, that’s a mighty big piece of pie you got there.

That thin line is $1,465 from forty-one contributors, the thin wedge is $10,000 from a Mark Matson in Ohio,

and the rest is $1.3 million from Rex Sinquefield.

My, that volunteer petition signature gathering is certainly quite expensive. Oh, wait…

All that fundraising expense for forty-three contributors. Anyone think they used gold plated contribution envelopes? Just asking.

$600,000.00 buys an awful lot of radio and television.

That John Temporiti?
