Back in March I wrote about how the Chamber of Commerce appeared to be trying to hide a $25,000 contribution from Mountain West Investment Corporation, whose president is Larry Tokarski.
Now Mountain West Investment Corporation is making campaign contributions in an indirect way by funneling five times as much money through a different political action committee.
On August 26th, Mountain West Investment Corporation gave $125,000 to the Jobs PAC.
Just two days prior, the Jobs PAC gave $2,500 to Republican Danielle Bethell’s campaign for Marion County Commissioner. On the same day, the Jobs PAC gave $10,000 to Republican Raquel Moore-Green’s campaign for the Legislature and on September 4 they gave $15,000 to Republican Denyc Boles' campaign for the Legislature.
Here's a screenshot of part of the most recent Secretary of State's transaction report for the Jobs PAC. I indicated the Mountain West Investment Corporation contribution in red.
As I noted in a May post, Hit piece on Trevor Phillips gets facts horribly wrong, the Jobs PAC is run by the Public Affairs Counsel firm in Salem. The treasurer of the Jobs PAC is James L. Wilson, who heads up that lobbying firm.
