Today, republican State Treasurer candidate Cole McNary’s campaign benefited from the largesse of two related contributors. At the Missouri Ethics Commission:
C081190 10/24/2012 FRIENDS TO ELECT COLE MCNARY David Humphreys PO Box 4050 Joplin MO 64803 Tamko 10/22/2012 $100,000.00
C081190 10/24/2012 FRIENDS TO ELECT COLE MCNARY Ethylmae Humphreys 2505 E 11th Street Joplin MO 64801 Retired 10/22/2012 $25,000.00
Still, for now, they only get one vote apiece.
But wait, there’s more:
C081190 10/24/2012 FRIENDS TO ELECT COLE MCNARY Citizens for Diehl 2404 White Stable Rd Saint Louis MO 63131 10/22/2012 $10,000.00
I don’t believe a campaign committee gets to vote in an election. The good thing for the candidate is that these contributions show a bit of geographic diversity. A bit.
