Peter Kinder’s follies upset big-time donor

Breaking news alert: Some of the people who go into politics aren’t very bright.

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder faces the possibility that dumb-assness will keep him from realizing his ambition of being the state’s next governor. Last week, a deep-pocketed Republican donor said he regrets supporting Kinder’s campaign and called on the Cape Girardeau politician to resign his office to avoid hurting the party in 2012. “If I had known this about him, I would not have supported him in the past,” David Humphreys, a southwest Missouri businessman who gave $165,000 to Kinder’s campaign in the current election cycle, told Politico.
