Spent this much moola during the first six months of 2008 to be your State Representative according to his July "Semi Annual Report". Mercy.
The entire PDF report is here. (Quite frankly, I really don't understand the time period because he had to file several reports before the primary election that cover the same time span. )
But get this: It says he spent on $911.20 on the Wise County Messenger during that time frame. That can't be right. I think the number may be closer to a half billion dollars.
(All his filing are listed here. You guys feel free to root around in them.)
