FEC Complaint Filed Against Tommy Sower’s DC Gay Bar Fundraiser

June 30th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

Former Rolla mayor Floyd Ferrell has filed a FEC complaint alleging that Tommy Sowers violated election laws during his fundraiser last month at a well known gay bar in Washington D.C. According to Ferrell, Sower’s fundraiser was also a backdoor (no pun intended)  product launch with Square Inc, a firm founded by St. Louis Twitter founder Jack Dorsey.

“This complaint makes a persuasive case that Tommy Sowers violated the law when he held a dual fundraiser and corporate product launch in Washington, DC. Either Sowers does not know the law, or he willfully flaunted it. Regardless, this demonstrates once again that he is simply not ready for prime time.” Lloyd Smith, Executive Director, MRP

Definitely not ready for prime time! Who is this guy’s campaign manager?

    All I have to say Floyd Ferrell is a bigot!! Whats the big deal with him going and campaigning in a gay bar opposed to a straight bar? Floyd is from an ultra-conservative town and they have issues with homosexuals!

    That picture is inappropriate. Have some respect for our veterans. Tommy Sowers did two tours of Iraq to keep YOU safe. Sheesh.

    Why are you so concerned about a candidate campaigning at a bar [you incorrectly believe] is a “gay bar”? Can straight people not interact with gay people? Quick, Jo Ann Emerson has a Facebook account, there are gay people on Facebook (potentially even – gasp – supporting her), what can we do? I know, we’ll call her names and make a caricature of her… Let’s put horns on her too.

    Let me see, Leonard. Mr Ferrell is a bigot because he filed an FEC complaint against the Sowers campaign. And Mr Ferrell is from an ultra-conservative town, which Tommy Sowers wants to represent in Congress. Again, Leonard, this is about a corporate campaign violation since corporations may still not assist candidates in a coordinated manner. And even Sowers admitted in multiple posts that this was a coordinated fundraiser with the Square corporation. Nothing bigoted at all to point out a violation of federal election law.

    I don’t know if Ferrell is bigoted or not, but this “news” Web site/blog sure is!
