We just saw the television ad running in the Kansas City media market paid for by the “Missouri Alliance For Freedom – Grace River PAC” attacking Hillary Shields (D), a candidate in the 8th Senate District special election. Mike Cierpiot (r) is the republican party candidate in the election.

It was easily established that the premise of the ad is a lie.

A lot of money has been passed through to the PAC, including:

C171144 10/26/2017 Missouri Alliance For Freedom – Grace River PAC Missouri Senate Campaign Committee P.O. Box 754 Jefferson City MO 65102 10/24/2017 $20,183.00

[emphasis added]

The Missouri Senate Campaign Committee is the republican state senate PAC.

They helped pay for the ad. They own it. They probably don’t care. They probably think they can get away with it. They’d be right.

Hillary Shields (D), the Democratic Party nominee for the 8th Senate District November special election.
