Tim Jones: House will continue to be for sale to the highest bidder

With $100,000 from retired billionaire Rex Sinquefield in his pocket and the prospect of more money to come from Sinquefield and other special interests, Speaker of the House Tim Jones, R-Eureka, says bills to reimpose campaign contribution limits are not going to go anywhere in the House.

Ethics bills that could work will emphasize transparency, Jones said, repeating what has been the Republican mantra in recent years.
