Think of it as a media buyer full employment stimulus package.

In the Missouri Constitution:

Section 29
Organized labor and collective bargaining.
Section 29. That employees shall have the right to organize and to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing.

Today at the Missouri Ethics Commission for a family funded PAC:

C151174 09/27/2016 COMMITTEE FOR ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT IN MISSOURI Sarah Humphreys Atkins 4713 Rock Springs Rd Arlington VA 22207 TAMKO Building Products Quality Consultant 9/27/2016 $1,000,000.00

[emphasis added]

The Tamko Building Products family.

It’s about “right to get paid less” – they spend their money going after legislators (including republicans) who support issues sympathetic to organized labor. You know, working people. And, they also ran a lot of ads against Chris Koster (D) – someone else who makes no apologies for supporting organized labor.

$1,000,000.00 is a lot of money. But, in the current saturated market, is there any TV ad time left? And if there is, will anything cut through the escalating noise? Just asking.
