The mandatory deadline for politicians to report quarterly earnings hit yesterday and reporters around the state filtered through over 4,000 PAC's, election committees and personal filings to decrypt who's paying who in Missouri Politics.

Statistics show most of you stop by early in the morning - so go ahead and take a look - the majority of discussion throughout the week will revolve around Missouri Ethics Commitee filings.
