Bearded Pols Scratch For Cash

A Columbia, Missouri school board member has a way for Missouri politicians to increase their campaign cash.

The Columbia Missourian reports that Jonathan Sessions and a friend have created a political action committee known as Bearded Entrepreneurs for the Advancement of a Responsible Democracy; BEARD, for short.

The 30-year-old information technology specialist says he’s had his beard for the last eight years and it hasn’t hurt his election chances.

Sessions, though, won’t say whether BEARD is a joke or a legitimate polirixL super PAC able to collect unlimited contributions.  The group recently registered with the Federal Elections Committee.
