TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! CONGRESSMAN SAM GRAVES HAS A LATE NIGHT DINNER WITH A BLONDE!!!



Now this is something new . . . KICKASS TKC TIPSTERS are coming all the way from Washington D.C.

Here's the sitch that's rather well described:

"Sam Graves was spotted Brickskeller, just west of Dupont Circle in Washington DC. Brickskeller is a dark, cavernous place. The type of place you would go if you didn't want to be seen -- just far enough from Capitol Hill that staffers won't see but still in the District's dining scene.

Attached are photos taken around 9PM on April 27 (last night) at Brickskeller in Dupont, Washington DC."



The photos are dark but it's definitely Graves. I don't know if it's a date but I can't see a wedding ring. What's clear to me is that the Missouri politico eats better than me considering I was struggling to find change in my car for snack cakes at QT last night. Natch.

Developing . . .

Are those papers/documents on the table beside them? Looks like a business meeting to me. Cheap shot.

They look like menus to me.

That restaurant is actually attached to a boutique hotel....

Lawsuit Lucy said...

I call Bull S--t.

I direct your attention to photo #1. She is talking and he is taking notes prior to their meal arriving. Next photo dinner comes and documents set aside. There is no way those are menus.

Next case please.

Since he accused Sara Jo Shettles of working for Penthouse (it was Onmi that she worked for), we are obligated to assume that blond is actually 7 underage prostitutes.

Tony, you've never had dinner out with a woman, have you? You're getting way too excited about this.

That is Jill Warren of the Patriot Group. She is a lobbyist skank who sleeps with members... uh oh.

Definitely menus! here's a pic of the menus at that place http://www.flickr.com/photos/mediageek/3647773538/

Jill Warren is a lobbyist representing health care institutionssystems, banks, utilities, and oil and gas interests. Don't forget to report that dinner on your ethics filing, Sam!

I thought there was a ban on lobbyist meals? has she donated to his campaign?

This looks so NOT like a date it isn't funny. The body language has business meeting written all over it. You people are really shitty.

Eric Rogers said...

At least has good taste. The Brickskeller is an amazing beer bar. I make sure to visit it at least every time I am in DC.

The photos look out of order... #2 is during dinner (food and drinks) #1 looks post-dinner (drinks almost empty). In photo #1 it looks like Sam is paying the bill. Doesn't it?

Sam is having late night with a blonde but he's apparently drinking and driving.

I was about to post same thing...

So they are menus, not papers and Graves is paying bill, not taking notes...

I wonder if this is one of Graves' Florida women?

So is this the family values part??

TONY, So what's up with the wedding ring? I can't see his left hand in either of these photos. Do you have one where you can see his left hand?

Anonymous said...

Seriously? What a cheap shot. The problem with politics today is people like Tony take it personal and therefore attacke people personally. We deserve who we get in office.

Anonymous said...

Tony, going out to dinner with people is what you do when you have a. job. b. friends.

Look into what those terms means.

Anonymous said...

A young blond, a bar, just the two of them, out of town??? Is this what we pay our congressman to do??For my hard earned Missouri dollar - not so much!

toadstool_watcher said...

Well if you are FORCED to eat with a lobbyist The Brickskeller is a very nice place to begin the business.

Samwisegam G said...

Maybe they are just pissed because they didn't get a coupon for a free blanc burger like every other blog or media outlet in town and can't write a faux EXCLUSIVE post about it.

Also, love how Tony writes "developing..." on the end of every post as if he's some news hound on the trail instead of some chump who relies on KICK ASS ANONYMOUS TIPSTERS STAND UP

Radioman KC said...

I believe, if you're going to have any street cred, you need to eat and retract this one. Don't let it stand with corrections and added facts just by commenters.

Figure out a way to do an honorable mea culpa, T.

Can you EDIT it? If so, come up with a format like a "PS" and add what you've learned so it doesn't just hang out there on the internet.

Retractions aren't bad, they're the journalistic right thing to do. We make mistakes. The dishonorable thing to do is to leave them hanging out there forever on search engines!

Will I wanna see that Republican sheep thrown out of office, not under false pretenses. I'd rather nail him for blindly voting NO to fixing health care, banking reform, and immigration policy.

The party of morals and values strikes again. Wonder how Roe will spin this? I am guessing it is not the first or the last time he will be caught with a woman.

Anonymous said...

Tony doesn't do "retractions" like legit bloggers or journalists, radioman. There was even a post he did once about Calvin Williford that was proved to be libelous because (it was like the one time Tony used records) the post was based on casenet files from a different Calvin Williford who had done adult abuse stalking or something. When this was pointed out, Tony didn't even apologize or take down the post. It's WAY past time someone sued this scum for libel.

Anonymous said...

Based on the photos we know that same had at least multiple beers. Was he driving?

I wonder if Tony has ever had dinner with a women?

Sam Graves better stay out of DuPont Circle since it's the gay hood in Washington, D.C. His opponent Clint Hylton may have friends there.

GRAVES SHOULD SUE TONY FOR LIBEL.

Anonymous said...

Dear Anyone Tony Libels:

You should SUE this fucking scumbag for libel already. E-fucking-nough.

Radioman KC said...

A public person can't sue for libel and win very often. It's been done successfully but not often.

I have run a couple stories that commentors corrected me... and I decided to just edit the piece at the bottom and say in bold caps, "UPDATE" and make an addendem. lets face it, Awesome tipsters can come in emails OR comments.

It encourages comments and it's all good, imho.

I notice RUSH is famous for not doing it. Just today he ragged on the now destroyed ACORN, still citing that they were telling a pimp operation how to set up a whorehouse, when it fact, it's already been proven that it was both a setup and soundbites taken out of context.

Shame on Rush for keeping up the falsehoods. He has no cred in my mind at all. I don't believe a word he says.

Tony only has one thing going for him. His street cred and like all journalists, he has to protect his credibility at all costs. Learning that is the main thing you learn in J school. All you have as an asset is your word.

Unless you're funded by a very rich guy... then you can run a cable network and say whatever you want... no matter if you have street cred or not. Like Faux News. But we all know what they are, except the sheep who have small brains anyway.

T needs to UPDATE his original post and bring in the lobbiest aspect. Which in itself isn't a bad story! But no, it's not gotcha with another woman! Not every story is about sex.

Anonymous said...

What is libelous about this post? Did he not have dinner? Was she not blonde? Reread the post. There is nothing insinuated in it, much less stated. Brush up on your internet law degrees and gain some respect for the First Amendment.

"Tony only has one thing going for him. His street cred and like all journalists, he has to protect his credibility at all costs."

You really think Tony has credibility? He openly admits that he prints false stuff all day long and doesn't bother to check it. What about the libelous piece on Calvin Williford that he never apologized, corrected or took down? Completely 100 percent false. A journalist never would have made that mistake in the first place - you can't just assume someone is the same person because they have a similar name - you check it out to make sure it's the same person before you print something.

Tony implies this is an affair, which it's obviously not. Maybe he worms out of this being libel by not openly stating that it's an affair, but c'mon. Calling the woman a "blonde," (yes, only women are defined by the color of their hair ... ever hear a man called "a blonde"?) commenting about not seeing a wedding ring. Tony needs to learn some fucking respect for other human beings.

"That's not his wife! Family Values..."

You're absolutely right. She should be wearing a burqua and there should be a chaperone there. No, scratch that. Women aren't allowed in business. They might tempt men to sin and cause earthquakes.

Tony hates women which is why he supports the waldo rapist so much. They work for the same team. INTIMIDATE THE BROADS they are all CHICKENHEADS right on Tony keep up the great work! Hey women how do Hearne's balls taste! KickASS tipsters told me women eat dinner. all of you haters are all NATCHES especially WHITE PEOPLE!

I'm more concerned he is politically in bed with a lobbyist like this than it not being his wife.

Anonymous said...

You'd have to ask Tony what Hearne's balls taste like since Tony works for the guy for free. Tony probably throws in a blow job every now and then too.

Har har. Take THAT, broadies. (5:39 wipes slobber off chin.)

TKC Referee said...

Just here to clear up some facts:

No, Tony has never had dinner with a woman and if he has his mom paid.

This is a post about Dinner. Lighten up people.

Tony gets paid but it's only in tacos.

Thank you, that is all.

Tony, this is the greatest photojournalism on your blog since you posted the pic of Funkhouser's daughter shopping at the grocery store.

That's not the usual blonde I see Graves with in DC, this one is older. Then again if this was business - wrong restaurant for the lobbyist crowd, Monocle, etc more common.

Bs. get the story before you pull this Tony.

Again - this guy spouts family values like it's his mantra. Don't see any family values in this pic. We're paying this guy $175,000.00 +++ a year to take out young blonds!
Tony - keep up the good work. At least you had the balls to post it - no one else seems to give a s**t. And at least his opponent is open and honest about his relationships - which is a lot more than I can say -obviously- about this guy! Hope his wife and young kids are understanding. And about retraction...PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!After what Sam Graves has dished out to people in the past this is like childsplay.
GOOD JOB TONY!!!!!

Though, of course, we all know Tony doesn't even have $500 to pay that judgment against him.

It's hilarious reading all the people making excuses for something that is so obviously inappropriate in many ways.
It must hurt you brain making so many contortions to explain this away.

Anonymous said...

Why am I not surprised? I guess more pictures should be taken while he's at the Pub House in Liberty, Mo.

I'm waiting for the next set of pictures.

Well you can bet he's not having dinner with an illegal Mexican. He'll help send them back to that wonderful country they're so proud of that they can't wait to leave and be a blight on ours.

I wonder if these pictures meant more than we realized now that Mr. Family Man has a divorce pending.
