Jones Funds Leadership For America

Former speaker Tim Jones contributed $200K to a new political action committee, “Leadership for America.” See the paperwork on Leadership here.
Jones reported $709K on-hand at the end of last quarter. So with this diversification, he’ll still be sitting on a campaign committee with a half-million dollars in the bank. His Missouri Ethics files has his campaign committee for a 2016 statewide race. As part of “ethics reform” this year, legislation has been proposed to prevent former legislators from retaining their war-chests beyond their political careers.
Jones is now involved in various Rex Sinquefield related organizations like Missouri Club for Growth and Pelopidas LLC.
