The republican majority in the Missouri General Assembly, you know, the ones who brought you Proposition A – “right to get paid less”…

This past weekend at the Missouri Ethics Commission for the HRCC:

C091068 08/19/2018 HOUSE REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE, INC Uniting Missouri PAC PO Box 444 Farmington MO 63640 8/18/2018 $50,000.00

How nice for them. There were quite a few more contributions for the HRCC in this batch.

That particular contribution is from a new PAC:
