Talboy increases lobbyists' gifts to $13,462.09
On a day when it is quite possible new ethics legislation will be pre-filed in the Missouri House of Representatives, Ethics Commission documents were posted showing Minority Leader Mike Talboy, D-Kansas City, has increased his record-breaking total of lobbyists' gifts to $13,462.09 for the first 10 months of 2009.
Talboy's totals were slightly down for October, according to the documents. He received $322.94 in gifts, topped by $100.19 worth of meals Oct. 5 from Julie Townsend, representing the payday loan industry's Advance America, and $189 in "entertainment tickets" from Travis Brown, representing Hunt Midwest Enterprises, Inc.
Talboy is now less than $100 away from having received $28,000 worth of lobbyists' gifts during the past three years.
