I’m sure some legal expert will correct me if I am wrong but, my understanding is that for libel to be involved it would need to be proven that the statement was false, that I knew the statement was false and some type of damages occurred. For example if a big wart grew on his nose and medical people determined it was caused by my statement then we have damages. Until these 3 things occur, in my opinion,…

The plug in digital CO monitors are nice. For like $25 mine gives a reading when it is over 30. I left a bucket of coals out for 20 minutes to test it once ... it went up to 45, I took the bucket out and it went right back down. For commercial settings they should have a couple at least and probably should read down to 20ppm. Restaurants are a little tricky since a hood on one side of the kitchen…

I believe that yes an individual should have the freedom to decide for themselves whether they join a union and get a job. However, I disagree with letting a vote of the people determine if collective bargaining is allowed. We're suppose to have representative government not pure democracy, which is anarchy.

Cullerton is a used car salesman, no offense to used car salesmen, who lies, spins and distorts the truth. The dems won't give up the power of the purse because of their fear of losing the power to buy votes with our tax dollars. If Cullerton, Madigan and the other dems really cared about Illinois and its citizens they would work to solve Illinois's budget problems not work to keep power…

Sinquefield, Busch top political donors in the fourth quarter

1 year, 1 month ago St. Louis Business Journal

In all, St. Louis individual donors contributed more than $1,022,500

From St. Louis Business Journal:

Area donors made significant contributions to Missouri candidates in the final quarter of 2013. In all, area individual donors contributed more than $1,022,500 to candidates, while area corporate donors gave more than $1.6 million, out of more than $10 million in contributions statewide.

The fourth quarter was the last reporting period before the beginning of legislative session. Lawmakers are back in Jefferson City, where they have more easy access to contributions from lobbyists and political action committees.

The list of nearly a dozen top area donors was compiled using bulk data provided by the Missouri Ethics Commission for donors who report contributions from addresses in the St. Louis-region. That means donors like Rex Sinquefield, who lists his home address in Westphalia, Mo., would not be included here, despite the fact that he has said he lives in St. Louis.

Sinquefield (a wealthy investor and political financier), for what it’s worth, contributed nearly $1.3 million in the final quarter of 2013, including $750,000 to TeachGreat.org , and $495,000 to his pro-tax cut group GrowMissouri.

The top St. Louis contributors during the fourth quarter were:

1. August Busch III

August Busch III led the pack in the St. Louis region during the final quarter of 2013, contributing a total of $50,000 to political candidates. Busch contributed $15,000 to the Missouri Republican Party, $15,000 to the House Republican Campaign Committee $10,000 to Majority Floor Leader John Diehl, R-St. Louis, and $5,000 each to Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann.

2. James McDonnell III

James McDonnell III contributed $25,000 to political candidates in the last quarter, including $15,000 to the Missouri Republican Party, $10,000 to House Speaker Tim Jones, and $5,000 to Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder. The contributions from McDonnell came after the legislature passed a massive incentive package for The Boeing Company, whose presence in Missouri was started by the McDonnell family.

3. Roy Pfautch

Roy Pfautch contributed $21,500 to candidates in 2013’s final quarter, including $20,000 to Republican State Auditor Tom Schweich’s reelection campaign and $1,000 to state Rep. Caleb Jones, R-California.

4. Jessie Bodine

Jessie Bodine, founder of Bodine Aluminum, contributed $20,000 to State Auditor Tom Schweich’s reelection campaign last quarter. Earlier this month, Schweich learned that his Democratic rival had dropped out of the race due to inability to raise sufficient funds.

5. Dave and Suzie Spence

Former gubernatorial candidate and area businessman Dave Spence contributed $15,250 to candidates last quarter, including $5,000 each to Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and House Utilities Committee Chairwoman Jeannie Riddle (who is running for state Senate). Spence also contributed $1,000 to the Missouri College Republicans.
