There’s a brand spanking new republican PAC funded by some recognizable names in Missouri republican circles.

Yesterday, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

C131183 02/11/2014 CITIZENS FOR A STRONGER MISSOURI David Spence 7733 Forsyth Blvd St Louis MO 63105 Self 2/11/2014 $10,000.00

C131183 02/11/2014 CITIZENS FOR A STRONGER MISSOURI William Holekamp Revocable Trust 5 Barclay Woods St Louis MO 63105 Holekamp Capital President 2/11/2014 $10,000.00

[emphasis added]

That David Spence?

Why is it no one ever names their PAC “Corporations For A Weaker Missouri”. Just asking.

The committee:

C131183: Citizens For A Stronger Missouri

4131 N Mulberry Dr Ste 200 Committee Type: Political Action

Kansas City Mo 64116

[….] Established Date: 12/12/2013

  Termination Date:

[emphasis added]

Yes, they’re new. They must have filed a fourth quarter 2013 campaign finance report.

Why, yes, they did. And they didn’t have a huge amount of money in the bank:

C131183: Citizens For A Stronger Missouri
