"Wing of the Democratic Party made up of workingmen and reformers, opposed to monopolies and financial policies that seemed to them antidemocratic and conducive to special privilege. The Locofocos received their name when party regulars turned off the gas lights to oust the radicals from a Tammany Hall nominating meeting. The radicals responded by lighting candles with new matches known as locofocos and nominated their own slate." (From: http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9048706 )

Location: Springfield, Missouri, United States

I am husband and father in a family of four, wife Verna, son Thomas, and daughter Jennifer. We've lived in Springfield's 137th District for over ten years at 800 W Calhoun St, and love the Grant Beach area. I was born to a military family, my mother and father met at Ft Leonard Wood. I was born in Ft Hood Texas, and travelled throughout my childhood, with most of my time spent in any one place in the Rolla Mo area. When I completed my own four year hitch with the US Navy, I settled here in Missouri, living in Mt Vernon. I moved into Springfield in 1994 to attend (then) SMSU and stayed, finding our permanent home in the Grant Beach Park area.

$3935 Tickets to Springfield Cardinals games
$5914 Food and Beverages, mostly in Wash. DC area swanky restaurants
$720 paid to Gandel Liquors for Booze
$850 paid to Pacific Cigar Company
$1901 paid to Justice Jewelers for "lapel pins"
$27,939 Visa Cards
$41,259 -----more than a lot of SW MO families make for a whole year!

And don't forget his pals at Thompson Communications, they billed him for $81,117 in these three months.
