From who exactly? We don’t have a clue. We might never know….

….Yes, but the eventual republican nominee will have all the money they need….

….Gee, someone must have some very wealthy out-of-state friends. Too bad we can’t tell who they are….

Today at the Missouri Ethics Commission for a PAC in Washington, D.C.:

C161307 09/29/2016 MISSOURI FREEDOM PAC Republican Attorneys General Association 1747 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Suite 800 Washington DC 20006 9/28/2016 $990,000.00

[emphasis added]

And not a penny more than needed.

Then, today at the Missouri Ethics Commission for Josh Hawley’s (r) 2016 campaign for Attorney General:

C151132 09/29/2016 HAWLEY FOR MISSOURI Missouri Freedom PAC 1747 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Suite 800 Washington DC 20006 9/29/2016 $1,000,000.00

[emphasis added]

Gee, the very same address. They must save a lot on postage.

Not particularly grassrootsie. Again. Not at all transparent. Again. That’s now $3,000,000.00 total from the same PAC, funded by another (the same) PAC in Washington, D.C.

Campaign finance in Missouri, especially as practiced by republican interests, is an obscenity.
