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[…]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.
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.
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.
