Peter Kinder's latest report with the Missouri Ethics Commission did not provide the same kind of fireworks the first one did. There are no families giving $300,000 to the lieutenant governor like the Humphreys family of Joplin did on the first day of our post-contribution limits era.
However, it is always interesting to see a $10,000 contribution from someone listed as a "homemaker."
Kinder received $31,250, according to the report filed Monday, including $10,000 from Joann Erlbacher. He also received $16,250 from TDG Cash Management, St. Louis, and $5,000 from Drury Properties, Cape Girardeau.
