Rex Sinquefield, billionaire who spent $11.2 million on Prop. A, isn’t even registered to vote on the e-tax
Rex Sinquefield is such a magnificent bastard, it’s hard not to be in awe of him.
You might not know his name. But it’s partly because of his billions that you’ll be checking “Yes” or “No” next month when KC and St. Louis vote on whether to keep their e-taxes. Sinquefield threw millions of dollars behind Prop. A, which led to voters deciding on the 1-percent earnings tax that supplies $200 million in annual revenue to KC alone. Surely after all this time toying with us, Sinquefield would at least vote on the measure, right? Nope! As it turns out, Scrooge McDuck here isn’t even able to vote on the measure.
