So @RoyBlunt, constituent here. Can I ask about your son's firm, Chinese timber, and money going right back to a PAC associated with you? It starts in the FARA database. 

Here we have your son's lobbying firm working for Qatar, Bangladesh, and now Chinese timber products.

Wow, FARA isn't just for countries anymore, but trade groups!

So, @RoyBlunt, is that your son's FARA-registered firm taking money from China, Bangladesh, and Qatar and putting it BACK into a PAC for your campaign? that Lacy Clay, too?


I don't want to get this wrong, so I checked "Friends of Roy Blunt" and FEC has it on radar. Looking forward to next quarter's disclosures!
