Buying Vouchers, One PAC at a Time

What's the hottest story coming out of the recent quarterly reports. No, it's not Jay Nixon raising more than Blunt when the caps are in effect. Its not even Dr. Sam Page having a great quarter. Its BILLIONAIRE Rex Sinquefield creating 100 PAC's and giving each of them $2,500 to get started. Yep, he just dropped $250,000 in to the old political bucket and quess who got almost half of it..

The Post did a pretty extensive write up on this extremely strange move. Why would someone do such a thing, even if they are worth a billion. Rex is the kind of guy that can and HAS written Blunt a hefty $100,000 check. As the Post pointed out, "A network of PACs, with each giving $1,275, would be a legal way for donors like Sinquefield to get around the limits while helping favored causes and candidates."

Who is Rex Sinquefield? Let's see what his friends say - "We just click on so many levels, on so many issues," said Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican who agrees with Sinquefield’s quest to abolish Missouri’s income tax. According to Wikipedia, Rex Sinquefield was the co-founder of Dimensional Fund Advisors and was its co-chairman until his retirement in 2005. In the 1970s, he did influential research on historical stock market returns and pioneered many of the nation's first index funds. Rex is a huge pro-voucher supporter.

Rex Sinquefield set up these 100 PACs and who got the money? Chris Koster. The Columbia Daily Tribune did a great job tracking Koster getting $99,450 from Rex's new PAC's. The Tribune also reported "the campaign spent $63,384.73 during the fundraising quarter, with bulk of that money going to Axiom Strategies - a firm run by GOP strategist Jeff Roe." Here's the link to Koster's recent MEC filing.

All Democrats want to welcome Senator Koster to the party. It's a big tent. Two issues that don't fit under our tent, however, are school vouchers and Jeff Roe. Expect an uproar from Harris and Donnelly about their position on school vouchers.

There are few tents under which Jeff Roe can fit.

Jeff Harris said this earlier today

“[Koster] thumbs his nose at Democratic values when he allows himself to be bought and paid for by a conservative ideologue and think tank that trashes public education, praises pay day loan sharks and opposes universal access to health care,” “I have a long and strong relationship with educators around the state and have fought tirelessly to protect and fund our public schools. You don’t fix public education by starving it. That is what my opponent supports by standing with ideologues like Right Wing Rex.”

Gail said...

First of all, Koster doesn't support vouchers. He is for public education.

Second, Harris and Donnelly need to get over their jealousy that Koster kicked *** in fundraising and they are barely in his dust.

Ok, Gail. If Koster doesn't support vouchers, why is this guy going to so much trouble to give him so much money?

When I logged into the hotel, I was surprised that I had 1000 habbo credits which is unbelievable. I logged back in 5 minutes later to discover that all my habbo gold has been stolen. It gives you a virtual environment where you can use your imagination to create your own small cartoony world with your own habbo coins and interact with different people. For decorations you actually pay real monry to buy habbo gold in the range of $0.20, it may sound ridiculous. To use Hotel navigator you need to install cheap habbo credits of macromedia hockave player. There are two types of rooms, public and guest room.

Maple Story is no uncertain terms lacking mesos ingenuity. I am sure that Maple Story is a great game and fun to play with the necessary maple mesos. The feeling to gain or reach the useful and necessary maple story mesos is very beautiful and wonderful. In other words players on the game makes cheap mesos, which the game entirely not fun to play what so ever. Wind Slayer although looking very much like Maple Story may be a game that saves this style of game play with some useful maplestory mesos.
