* What is it with $5,001.00 almost all the time? Is there a secret handshake, too? Just asking.
* Yes, we know that the extra $1.00 over $5,000.00 means that the contribution must be reported within 48 hours to the Missouri Ethics Commission. It’s the campaign finance disclosure version of strutting your stuff – for both the contributor and the campaign.
