I promised myself I'd stop, but this is incredible.
According to the latest ethics disclosures, Supt. of Education candidate Karen Floyd has raked in $288,530 in about a month and a half, since her last report.
But that's not really what's incredible... most of that was from two big bank loans: $100,000 from First National Bank and $81,572 from NBSC.
So Floyd really only “raked in” $106,958 in contributions.
What's incredible is how much of that was from SCRG's boss, New York libertarian Howard Rich:
5/26 405 49 Associates 73 Spring St., Rm. 507, New York, NY, $3,500
5/26 538-14 Realty, LLC 73 Spring St., Ste. 507, New York, NY, $3,500
5/26 Silver & Silver Properties, LLC 1010 One Premier Plaza, Atlanta ,GA $3,500
6/02 123 LaSalle Associates 73 Spring St., Rm. 507, New York, NY $3,500
6/02 123 LaSalle, Inc. 73 Spring St., Rm. 507, New York, NY $3,500
6/02 Bayrich, LLC 73 Spring St., Ste. 507, New York, NY $3,500
6/02 Dayrich, LLC 73 Spring St., Rm. 507, New York, NY $3,500
That’s $24,500, or 23%, from one man's ever-growing arsenal of companies.
Another $17,500, or 16%, came from several companies -- Aspect Energy, Azimuth Energy, Walnut Software, etc. -- which share an address: 511 16th Street, Suite 300, Denver, CO, 80202. The address is also shared by a voucher organization called "Alliance for Choice in Education," whose name is not found in the ethics filing.
All told, 47% of Floyd's contributions were from out-of-state. And 23% was from Howard Rich. I don't know if I mentioned that.
