A new political documentary, “I Want Your Money,” is the work of a filmmaker with Missouri ties. The New York Times today writes that:
“Raised almost entirely in Germany until he was 17, Mr. Griggs, the son of an Air Force officer, said he learned political lessons by observing life in Europe while absorbing American culture from afar. On returning to the United States, he worked at a television station in Missouri, then began his own business, making commercials and corporate videos.
“His formal introduction to politics, Mr. Griggs said, came with his work as a campaign manager, then staff member, for Rob Schaaf, a Republican in the Missouri House of Representatives. Mr. Griggs was known for whimsical campaign ads that had Mr. Schaaf talking from the bottom of a coffee cup.”
Former Missouri GOP state auditor candidate Allen Icet also makes an appearance. You can watch the trailer for the movie on YouTube.
