When contribution limits are eliminated, big money can easily buy favors from elected officials. Corporate lobbyists, corporations, and out-of-state interests prevail while working families struggle to make ends meet. The Republicans have completely rewired the state of Missouri and done immense structural damage to our electoral process. By allowing limitless contributions, gerrymandering voting districts to favor only one party, and promoting voter suppression, they are stifling the voices of Boone and Cooper counties’ residents.
It is time to put an end to corruption in the state legislature. Our state representatives are elected by the working people to work for all the people–not corporations or special interests.
