Previously: This won’t be the last story on SB 509 (May 8, 2014)
No, it won’t.
What a difference two years can make. A lot of people are weighing in on the 51st Legislative District rematch between Dean Dohrman (r) and Gary Grigsby (D). We received this mail yesterday:
Paid for by The Committee to Protect Missouri Families.
The Warrensburg School Superintendent said the plan Dohrman voted for, “is something we don’t think is good for education.”
The UCM President said the plan Dohrman supported, “could disrupt funding for the University of central Missouri.” [….]
BUT DOHRMAN VOTED FOR IT ANYWAY.
Somehow republicans thought messing with the future of educational institutions in their districts wouldn’t be noticed around election time.
Heh. The piece also mentioned the billionaire by name.
The Committee to Protect Missouri Families is a brand new PAC (via the Missouri Ethics Commission):
C141549: The Committee To Protect Mo Families Pac Fund
Po Box 39368 Committee Type: Political Action
St Louis Mo 63139
[….] Established Date: 10/06/2014
And they’re associated with the Carpenters’ District Council of Greater St. Louis and Vicinity. Working people. And they remember those votes on SB 509 which screwed working people, public education, public services, and public infrastructure. They’re using the mail to remind voters in the 51st Legislative District of those inconvenient facts. What a difference two years can make.
Dean Dohrman (r) thinks your stoopit (October 10, 2014)
Dean Dohrman (r) thinks your stoopit – part 2 (October 16, 2014)
Dean Dohrman (r) thinks your stoopit – part 3 (October 18, 2014)
Dean Dohrman (r) thinks your stoopit (so do his friends) – part 4 (October 24, 2014)
Fancy that, the billionaire who benefited from Dean Dohrman’s (r) votes on SB 509 paid for mail in support of Dean Dohrman (r).
