Barnett loans himself $100K, Boldra down and out

A quick check of the FEC website shows Jim Barnett has loaned himself $100,000. This was an expected move on his part, with more to come almost a certainty. No results yet from Huelskamp, Mann or Wasinger.

Boldra reported just under $2,000 raised, with just over $6,000 on hand. Looks like Bolrda will remain a minor candidate.

Barnett also took in a handsome amount of contributions, just under $150,000. And I see a lot of Kansas addresses. However, I also see he's listed "requested" for occupation for every single contribution. That's not going to fly with the FEC and it makes no sense at all why he's done it, especially since some of them wouldn't be hard to figure out. State Rep. Don Hill for example donated. Why list "requested" for his occupation? It's not like it's a big secret.

That's all for tonight. More tomorrow or Thursday as more reports come online.

The FEC should nail him. Also interesting that a majority of his money comes from Topeka, Wichita, and Emporia.

And the $100,000 loan is going to fly about as far as Tim Barker's got him.

So the locals in Topeka are supporting Barnett?

Why shouldn't they, he takes money from Emporia and spends it in Topeka, where he and his family actually live. Have you seen the mansion he owns there?

Topeka loves the scenario of Barnett winning, it gives them another U.S. Congressman under their thumb, at the expense of the 1st District.
