Mailboxes in the 51st Legislative District are getting inundated with Dean Dohrman (r) campaign mail paid for by everybody but Dean Dohrman.
Dean Dohrman (r) spent his time in the General Assembly in Jefferson City voting to prevent an imaginary implementation of Sharia Law, voting to stop a right wingnut paranoid fantasy concocted out of the ether in the form of Agenda 21, and voting for nullification (which was settled 150 years ago). Nope, nothing on jobs.
Dean Dohrman (r) did vote to screw education (and the University of Central Missouri) in his district. School Boards across the state opposed that ill conceived cut to public education for the benefit of the wealthiest few.
Dean Dohrman (r) did vote to allow the state to intrude on an individual’s medical decisions.
With no record of legitimate legislative achievement to speak of Dean Dohrman’s (r) benefactors have to resort to mailers like these to prop him up.
This one is paid for by the Missouri republican party.
Uh, Dean Dohrman (r) ain’t no friend of educators or public education. Think for a moment about the delicious irony of the incumbent posing in front of the University of Central Missouri football stadium with young people wearing university gear after voting to screw the institution and its students in 2013, and again in the last session in 2014.
And for more delicious irony (or cluelessness, your choice) a mail piece paid for by a PAC largely funded by a right wingnut billionaire:
….Dean Dohrman listens to his constituents, not special interests!….
Who paid for that?:
Understatement (July 20, 2014)
MISSOURI ETHICS COMMISSION

Rex Sinquefield’s campaign contribution to the Missouri Club for Growth as reported to the Missouri Ethics Commission in 2014
– compared to those of seventeen other individuals and one business entity. That tiny slice is everyone else.
Uh, one person with a lot of money spending that money for a specific political agenda is a special interest.
Wait a minute. The second piece was paid for by an “independent” entity as an “independent” expenditure. Why is the candidate’s clothing in the respective glamor shots in different mailings by different entities identical?:
Paid for by the Missouri republican party (left) and Missouri Club for Growth PAC (right).
The tie, the shirt, and the jacket are identical. The haircut is exactly the same, too. What are the odds?
Just asking. Maybe there are paparazzi prowling the 51st Legislative District capturing images of candidates while they stand around outside smiling in their suits. Nah.
And the next mailing, an attack piece paid for by the Missouri republican party, extolls the virtues of SB 509:
And who really, really, really wanted SB 509? You guessed it, a right wingnut billionaire.
Here’s the thing for candidate Dean Dohrman (r), he can’t cheerily benefit from insipid mailings (with no substance) like the first piece paid for by the Missouri republican party and at the same time escape accepting responsibility for the nasty attack pieces on his behalf paid for by that same Missouri republican party – all mailed to the same households in the district.
