Who Buys Office Supplies at Bass Pro?: Billy Long Goes Fishing
Long's campaign reports show he spent $422.70 at Bass Pro Shops on office supplies.
Who buys office supplies from Bass Pro? It appears Congressman Billy Long buys office supplies from Bass Pro according to his campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. Knowing Billy, his office is probably decorated with Billy Bass.

However, the amount spent at Bass Pro Shops either means Long has Billy Bass on every wall of his office or he is increasing the size of his tackle box using campaign contributions. In case you haven't been paying attention, Long's opponent, Tom Stilson, who by the way still lives with his mom and dad, attacked Congressman Long claiming Billy was having serious financial problems. As well, word around Southwest Missouri is Billy Long's Highland Springs home was facing foreclosure and Long borrowed a hundred of thousands of dollars from his dad to get out of trouble.
Based on this, it is very possible Long is dipping into his campaign funds to pay for his fishing supplies and his trips to Las Vegas based on these curious entries that are listed in the required July 2012 FEC report and reports Long and Stilson's attack that Long is having a personal financial crisis.
