We still don't know who is footing the bill for Jeff Flowers' campaign
According to Flowers' financial disclosure report, filed this morning with the Missouri Ethics Commission, the Joplin R-8 Board of Education president was down to his last $5.40 (the district apparently wasn't the only entity with low cash reserves) when the Joplin Progress Committee made its contribution.
Since the 40 days before election report, Flowers spent $2,629.60, including $1,293 for signs from the Sign Shop in Webb City, and $392 for signs from Custom Window Clings in Newark, N. J.
He also spent $800 for advertising with 4 State Advertising, Joplin, and $116.42 for postage.
Flowers reported receiving $395 in contributions, but listed no names for any of the contributors.
At this point in the campaign, including the $723.06 the Joplin Progress Committee gave to his campaign last week, Jeff Flowers has received $3,368.06. He has not provided a name for any of his contributors, except for Judy Priddy, who gave $200. In addition to the $1,723.06 he has received from the secretive Joplin Progress Committee, Flowers has listed no names for $1,435 in contributions.
