TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY LGBT COMMUNITY ANGER AS KC PRIDE DEMOCRATIC CLUB ENDORSES JUDY MORGAN OVER LGBT ACTIVIST SARAH GILLOOLY!!!
This morning there's another big shocker among Kansas City's political denizens watching an important Missouri House election.
IN A HURRIED AND SOMEWHAT SECRET MEETING KC PRIDE DEMOCRATIC CLUB ENDORSED JUDY MORGAN OVER LGBT ACTIVIST SARAH GILLOOLY!!!
This is certainly an oddball decision given that so many LGBT leaders had expressed their excitement over a young, female and dedicated activist getting into the race to represent Downtown Kansas City in the Missouri House.
This decision has already sent shockwaves among politically active members of Kansas City's LGBT community.
A TKC TIPSTER writes . . .
"KC Pride endorsed Judy AND did not even have the courtesy to give Sarah a screening. Judy and Gene Morgan are members and were present for the vote last night. Many in the LGBT community have been expressing their displeasure with the process - that Sarah was not included or considered."
It gets worse . . .
TKC TIPSTERS tell us
"Gene Morgan, Judy's husband, made the original motion to endorse his wife."
Another AWESOME TIPSTER tries to do some myth busting . . .
"Somebody needs to hit Judy Morgan with the fact that she's NOT an incumbent is this race. She holds elected office but not in this district. She is misrepresenting herself . . ."
Meanwhile . . . As all of this drama unfolded Coach Comstock was somewhere in a corner pouting that TKC is too mean to him.
Anyhoo . . .
THIS ENDORSEMENT IS QUIZZICAL GIVEN THAT KC PRIDE IS SUPPOSEDLY DEDICATED TO ADVANCING THE CAUSE OF THE LGBT COMMUNITY AND THEIR CANDIDATES YET THEY TURN THEIR BACK ON A YOUNG WOMAN WHO MEETS BOTH OF THOSE CRITERIA!!!
Stranger still . . .
A POSTSCRIPT TO THIS STORY: SARAH GILLOOLY WON AN ENDORSEMENT FROM FREEDOM INC. AND APPARENTLY WON'T EVEN BE REQUIRED TO CUT THE GROUP A CHECK!!!
As election season ramps up the only thing that's clear is that allegiances are quickly changing, candidates can't count on old school institutions and Kansas City's political landscape continues to evolve.
DEVELOPING . . .
