Kiffmeyer (R-MN) - On Hiding ALEC Expenses

Kiffmeyer (R-MN) - On Hiding ALEC Expenses

Many times as researchers we have a hard time finding the information that we want.
That's because the people / things we are researching tend to be a little more creative than we imagine.

If you look at Mary Kiffmeyer (R-MN)
Period Covered  1/1/2010 through 12/31/2010

You will find an expenditure under
Schedule B1-NCD
Noncampaign Disbursements, Principal Campaign Committee
To
Vendor:   Kiffmeyer, Ralph R.
(who happens to be her husband)

FOR 
6/28/2010
Conference and meeting fees    $510
ALEC
   Expenses of serving in public office
   Reimburse payee for purchases as follows
   Registration Fee
     ALEC
    1101 Vermont Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20005

Also, in 2010 Mary Kiffmeyer received
$5,338.35
Public Subsidy - State of Minnesota - Campaign Finance Board

Which means as a taxpayer -
I subsidized her to attend that DAMN ALEC meeting.

If there's nothing wrong with belonging to ALEC...
   Why does ALEC  hide their membership lists and
   why do ALEC members deny belonging to ALEC and
   why do ALEC members hide money spent on ALEC?

Guess that's a lesson to me that I need to be more creative

If you don’t know what ALEC is  you should –
because they are a threat to our democracy.
– please read this, or  this, or  this, or this.

  1. To Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, please tell Congress and President Obama to

    Create jobs!
    Tax the rich and cut their salaries
    Raise the Debt Ceiling!
    Go Green! eliminate plastic bags that are not good for the environment.
    Make schools safer and put children and education first!
    Give teachers, police, firefighters, union workers and supermarket employees union and nonunion raises. Cut wasteful spending and give more money to the poor, homeless and middle class.
