St. Louis billionaire Rex Sinquefield is propping up Rep. Todd Akin in the last days of the Missouri Senate race. The KC Star has the story:
A group called Now or Never PAC said Wednesday it will spend $800,000 on a last-week ad campaign supporting Rep. Todd Akin's Senate campaign. Campaign finance disclosures and past reporting suggests the PAC -- and therefore the spending -- are connected to two area Republican political consultants and well-known multi-millionaire Rex Sinquefield.
Records show Sinquefield has given $200,000 to Now or Never PAC this year.
This is in addition to the $700,000 the National Republican Senatorial Committee appears to have kicked in for Akin, even after Committee Chair John Cornyn repeatedly called for Akin to get out of the race AND said the NRSC would be giving absolutely no money to the congressman in his race against Sen. McCaskill.
But back to Rex: take note, democrats. Todd Akin is who Rex Sinquefield wants to be our next senator. Todd "Legitimate-Rape-End-School-Lunches-Paying-Women-Less-Is-Freedom" Akin.
