It’s always too easy.

We don’t allow ignorant comments out of moderation to be linked with the original post, but we will present some of them in subsequent posts for the purpose of public derision and mockery. As we see fit.

We see fit.

Attempted trolling comment submitted today in response to Campaign Finance: “Oil, that is…” (June 20, 2023):

You just listed the SAME donation 6 times. I checked the registration numbers. What kind of inflated reporting is this? The same information listed 6 times is just inflammatory reporting .

Read the following SLOWLY so you can try to understand it. SOUND out the words, if that helps:

There were six different receiving entities, each with a unique Missouri Ethics Commission ID, each receiving $15,000.00, each reporting separately on June 20th.

C190996 06/20/2023 Conservative Leaders of Missouri
C171235 06/20/2023 Missouri Senior PAC
C131007 06/20/2023 Missouri Growth PAC
C151156 06/20/2023 MO Majority PAC
C171229 06/20/2023 Missouri C PAC
C141393 06/20/2023 Missouri AG PAC

[emphasis added]

There was one contributing entity, which made six separate contributions in the amount of $15,000.00 each to different receiving entities. If you need help with the math, that’s $90,000.00 total on June 20th.

Warrenton Oil Company 2299 South Spoede Truesdale MO 63380 6/20/2023

[emphasis added]

Interestingly, the reported address of the contributing entity has the same typo for five of the six reporting receiving entities:

Warrenton Oil Company 2299 South Spoede 2299 South Spoede Truesdale MO 63380 6/20/2023

[emphasis added]

What’s with that?

“…I checked the registration numbers…” No, you didn’t.
