Peter Kinder has 82,000-plus reasons to smile today.
Missouri's political puppet master
Rex Sinquefield yesterday made two contributions to Lt. Governor Peter Kinder's campaign coffers, totaling $82,191.
Kinder is expected to soon announce that he'll run for governor against incumbent Jay Nixon in 2012.
As Fired Up! Missouri
reports today, the Republican Kinder has announced on several occasions that he supports Sinquefield's questionable goal
of ending Missouri's state income tax.
And while $82K is nothing to snicker at, it's chump change compared to the $3.9 million
Sinquefield has already thrown at his pet project.
