Jay Nixon: “Chicago, My Kind of Town” (For Fundraising)

May 13th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

Jay and his surrogates are really pushing hard the class warfare rhetoric this election cycle. While they resurrect classic Marxist/Socialist applause lines:

“Sure, Jay and I have had differences in the past.”

“We need a governor who is committed to working with all of Missouri’s diverse communities, not just the wealthy and connected.”

“We haven’t always had a seat at the table where decisions are made in state government. Those seats have been reserved for the rich, the connected and the same old faces.” – Ronnie L. White, former Missouri Supreme Court chief justice.

“Jay Nixon strongly supports contribution limits so that regular Missourians, not wealthy corporate types, have the power to influence elections,” said Oren Shur, spokesman for the Nixon campaign.”

“We can once again focus on helping regular Missourians get ahead, rather than helping the same old wealthy insiders stay ahead.” – Jay Nixon

Jay is headed to Chicago on May 22nd (no word if he’s taking the private jet or his official vehicle) for a campaign fundraiser to help “regular Missourians stay ahead.” According to the invite, the price to be Jay’s “guest” is only a mere $250. For $250 more, you can be elevated to a “sponsor” and for a measely $1,350, you can call yourself a “host.” Wonder if any “wealthy corporate types” will be there?

“Wealthy Kansas City-area trial lawyer with ties to Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon stands accused of padding a client’s expenses bill.

Two former employees of well-known Independence, Mo.-based law firm Humphrey, Farrington & McClain (HFM) allege that star lawyer Ken McClain “illegally” charged a client about $274,000 in extra expenses.

HFM was one of five law firms signed on by Nixon to Missouri’s Medicaid-based tobacco lawsuit just five months before a $6.7 billion settlement was awarded in 1998. Their appointment and the subsequent fees they garnered drew charges of political favoritism.” Read more…
