At least 73 of the 100 political action committees formed by retired billionaire Rex Sinquefield have been shut down over the long Thanksgiving weekend, according to Missouri Ethics Commission documents.
The termination process apparently began Thanksgiving today and continued Friday and today.
The process apparently began right after the election, with many of the committees sending what money they had left into the account of Public Charter Schools of Missouri PAC East on Nov. 4. The committee, in a report filed Nov. 20, indicated it has spent $45,590, with all of that money going to newly-elected attorney general Chris Koster.
In a report filed Nov. 26 with the Ethics Commission, Koster reported receiving that amount on Nov. 25.
