Quinn should butt out and let Rauner appoint an interim comptroller and decide if an election is needed or even wanted by Illinois citizens. Why waste more tax payer dollars for a special session, especially if Rauner disagrees with Quinn's stance. The earliest election would be 2016, so what's the hurry Quinn? The special session is a total waste of tax payer dollars

There are very few truly victimless crimes. If you look at Quincy, the arrests and names you see over and over again aren't usually getting picked up for smoking a joint, they're getting arrested for cooking and selling meth. Many times they're putting kids in danger, and the majority of the time they're also sucking from the public teat instead of cleaning up their act and getting…

Sinquefield, Busch top political donors in the fourth quarter

10 months, 2 weeks 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.
