St. Louis businessman has spent millions on Missouri campaigns

Joe Yerardi, of the Columbia (Mo.) Missourian, found that retired St. Louis businessman Rex Sinquefield has spent millions to bankroll numerous campaigns in Missouri in the past two years. "The donations, which total more than $13.3 million, are the result of Sinquefield's personal wealth, his ideological passions and Missouri's lax campaign finance laws, experts and politicians say." His donations have been bipartisan, though favoring Republican campaign committees nearly 3-to-1.
