Who is Howard Rich? pt. 2

Where was I? Oh yeah, Missourians in Charge.

Even though there’s probably no connection whatsoever between Missourians in Charge and South Carolina politics, I figured I’d read a little more about them. Turns out, they decided earlier this month to sue the state government:
The sponsor of two ballot measures rejected by the Missouri secretary of state’s office sued Friday, arguing that disorganized petitions should not override 400,000 signatures in support[…]

Despite its name, Missourians in Charge has few ties to Missouri. Most of its funding – $1.36 million – came from the Fund for Democracy, a New York organization bankrolled by developer Howard Rich.
I wanted to find the address of this “Fund for Democracy,” the committee that bankrolls MIC from just barely outside the Show-Me State. In case I want to send ‘em a request to fund some democracy for me.

Anyway, I found the address here. It’s 73 Spring Street, New York, NY.

When Hannah Jane and I visited New York last April, we shopped a little near there, in SoHo. Mostly window shopping, if you know what I'm saying. That's how Gervais rolls. We also saw the musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (starring John Lithgow), which was a riot.

But anyway -- what does 73 Spring Street have to do with SC politics and our own dirty rotten scoundrels? Probably nothing.

Time to dump Disney stock and let former Democratic Senator and Disney Chairman of the Board George Mitchell know about it.

You would think that a company that made it's fortune of off children would be the last one to hurt so many.

It's amusing how Ross is so intent on exposing Howard Rich, but refuses to do the honorable thing and out himself on this blog.

That is amusing.

I ain't the sharpest tack in the box when it comes to understanding politics, so help me understand why Missouri cares about vouchers in SC? What is their dog in this fight? P.S. I work for The SCEA.

Janet,
Missouri doesn't care about vouchers in SC. They care about vouchers in Missouri. The point he is making is that the voucher group in Missouri and the voucher group in SC both claim to be "grass roots" organizations, but they both receive most or all of their funding from this one guy in New York who isn't from Missouri or South Carolina. Big money ideologues in a fancy Soho apartment funding local politics in a region with which they are otherwise unaffiliated. That's the problem. Just wait for part 4. Maybe it will become more clear.

I would question the ethics of any organization associating with John Stossel.
