At the ostensible end of an era of breathtaking arrogance leave it to the campaign of a self-identified crusader against the “culture of corruption” in Jefferson City to treat us, yesterday, with enough breathtaking arrogance to beat all.

They don’t particularly care what you may think about it now because they know you’re most probably not paying attention. If you are paying attention they’re counting on your forgetfulness. They’re probably right on both counts.

At the Missouri Ethics Commission:

[….]
On November 8, 2016, Missouri voters approved Constitutional Amendment 2 which, among its provisions, imposes campaign contribution limits on certain candidates for state office including statewide offices, legislative offices and judicial offices.
[….]
… the effective date is December 8, 2016…
[….]
Section 23, subsection 3(1), provides a contribution limit of $2,600 from any person, other than the candidate, to elect individuals to state office for “one” election.
