Campaign contributors pay Richard's NRA dues
Though he is certainly making enough money to cover the costs, documents filed today with the Missouri Ethics Commission show Sen. Ron Richard, R-Joplin, used his campaign money to cover his $35 dues payment to the National Rifle Association.
Richard received $5,000, all from Leggett & Platt, during the last quarter, and has $205,324.71 in his bank account, according to the report.
Richard spent $15,608.43, including the NRA dues payment.
