Our household received this campaign piece in today’s mail:
Because Kansas is doing so well? Right.
Conservative candidates need your help to make Missouri’s Economy strong again. Liberals and special interests are relentlessly trying to make it harder to run a business; they want to raise taxes to fund government, create unnecessary red tape and drive up costs that slow success.* They are counting on low voter turnout to make it happen. It’s your civic duty to vote on November 4th.
Go tell it to Kansas.
Yeah, irony of ironies, they refer to the travesty that is SB 509.
And this is particularly rich (pun intended):
….WHAT ARE WE VOTING FOR?: [….] Greater Access to Healthcare….
Is there anyone left on the planet who seriously believes that right wingnut republicans want people to have greater access to healthcare? Any twenty-something campaign consultant who shovels this mail is either delusional or a sociopath.
Yes, it’s the PAC with the blimp that confuses supporters of legalization:
The Rex Sinquefield funded PAC Grow Missouri’s moving billboard at
the University of Central Missouri’s Skyhaven Airport near Warrensburg [file photo].
And the money comes from:
How “a broad based coalition” is now defined in Missouri and America (September 12, 2014)
The Grow Missouri PAC’s “broad based coalition” consists of $6,045,000.00 from Rex Sinquefield (in blue)
and $22,000.00 (in-kind) from Pelopidas LLC over the fourteen month existence of the PAC.
Welcome to Missouri and America in the 21st century.
