Grisamore (47th) Takes Money from Pay Day Loan Companies and Faces Tough Opposition


KC Blue Blog does a great analysis of Rep. Jeff Grisamore taking money from pay day loan companies.

EXCLUSIVE: Vulnerable State Representative Jeff Grisamore (R-Lee's Summit) took over $2,000 in contributions from Predatory Loan Companies and their lobbyists.

Also, The Blue Blog has learned that since Grisamore has taken office in 2006, three or more Predatory Loan Companies have appeared inside his Lee's Summit district.

Grisamore's endorsement of Predatory Loan Companies and their practices is out of touch and unacceptable to the voters inside his district and across the State of Missouri.

By taking these dollars from Predatory Loan Companies, Grisamore is saying it is ok to have 400% interest rates on loans, and ok to have loan sharks inside our communities across Missouri, unchecked and unaccountable for the destruction they do to the lives and communities they prey on
.


Here's the good news. There's a great, young, hard working Democratic candidate taking on Grisamore. Jason Norbury is already working hard. Jason has some name ID from taking on Sen. Matt Bartle. Jason will get a 2 - 5% bump because of this being a presidential year (and Democrats coming out in greater numbers). Grisamore continues to get heat, including this Pitch article: Missouri State Rep. Jeff Grisamore uses the death of his infant daughter to ask for campaign cash.

Every little race counts. Every Republican with strong opposition helps out every Democrat running. Grisamore now has to stay at home and protect his seat from Norbury. All that means continued good things for our party.

The board acknowledged Grisamore and the other Representatives for their advocacy of the Lee's Summit School District. They said, "Representative Grisamore needs the Board's Support"

In other news, Jeff sponsored House Bill 2265. It would require insurance companies to provide coverage for autism spectrum disorders. This coverage would be limited to children that were diagnosed before the age of 8 and would be discontinued at age 16. That leaves out quite a few of our kids. I told him so, but he did manage to get him on the Today Show and that was really more important than making sure that the bill was good for our families.

On another note, Grisamore told the Tribune that "One aspect of the bill that was "lost to compromise," Grisamore said, "were tax credits for parents to send their children to another school if their local public school wasn't able to provide an adequate education."

"We couldn't find common ground between the public educators and the school-of-choice folks," Grisamore said.

Grisamore said some lawmakers were nervous about the potential of public funding going to private schools.

What he didn't say is that he voted no on a bill that would have allowed our children the right to go to a school that could provide them services if our school wasn't. That is why the Board and District are endorsing him.

He also sent out an email asking for campaign donations from families that are affected by autism. He said that he didn't want to get money from special interest groups. Well, he is endorsed by the NEA and the School District. Those interests are pretty special to me.

Here is a portion of his "Urgent Request"

I urgently need your help. To continue my fight for the disabled and their families, I need to raise significant funds for my re-election this year. My ability to influence funding and services for the disabled for years to come is related to how much I can raise for my campaign.

March 31st is an important deadline, as April quarterly reports for campaign financial disclosures will show contributions received through March 31st. Any and all contributions that I can receive by March 31st will greatly help our cause of advocating for the disabled.

My goal is to raise up an army of grassroots supporters by the hundreds and thousands who will stand with me to fight for the disabled and give them a stronger voice in Jefferson City.

My passion driven priorities for the disabled is very innovative and ambitious, but I can't do it without your help. I need an army of grassroots supporters to stand behind my campaign so that I can raise enough funding to assume future chairmanships and leadership in the House.

Contributions of any amount up to and totaling $325 per person in the primary cycle (now through August 5th) and $325 in the general election cycle (8/6 through 11/4). Couples can give up to $650 now in two separate checks for $325. Children 14 and over can do the same.

For those who can't give that much, even $30 is helpful and just $3 can count you among our coalition for the disabled and make a statement as we mobilize an army of supporters to fight and advocate for individuals with disabilities.

I don't know how you feel, but I don't have any money to send Representative Grisamore. Most of his constituents are broke from fighting with the school district that he is in bed with.

Investigate how Representative Grisamore lives in a $200,000 house with so many children and neither he or his wife have a job. He makes $40,000 being a Congressman. The information is on the internet. Read it.

Did Norbury's enemies circulate that creepy picture of him?

While most people do not like them because of the weaker stat types, in this game you do not have to work about that with rohan crone. The other thing that backs this up is their ability to cast many rohan online crone and stun spells. When put rohan gold to the test they can also use powerful magical attacks to fend for themselves. Templar Quite the aggressor, they are more of the fighting type healers who only use their rohan online gold to magic on themselves. By using rohan money to buy crossbows they attack slower but with their powerful attacking skills it dose not matter much.
