Today, via the Missouri Ethics Commission, Rex Sinquefield just dropped a lot of money on a committee:
C111024 01/30/2012 A SAFER MISSOURI Rex Sinquefield 244 Bent Walnut Westphalia MO 65085 Retired 1/28/2012 $885,000.00
According to their amended Statement of Committee Organization [pdf] filed on December 28, 2011, A Safer Missouri is supporting “Statuatory Amendment to RSMo Chapters 83, 84, 86 and 105, relating to Municipal Police Force, Version 7”. That would be about the 2012 ballot initiative concerning local control of the St. Louis Police.
Money speaks. Loudly.
