TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! MO HOUSE REP. CANDIDATE JEREMY LAFAVER EXPLAINS TAX TROUBLES AND REVEALS HE HASN'T BEEN IN KANSAS CITY FOR LONG!!!
Kansas City Midtown political drama was on blast . . .
ONCE AGAIN TKC TIPSTERS WERE PROVEN CORRECT!!!
But there's even more to the story . . .
MO HOUSE REP. HAS AN EXPLANATION FOR HIS TAX DRAMA WHICH REVEALS HE HASN'T REALLY BEEN IN KANSAS CITY THAT LONG!!!
I guess in Kansas City being a carpetbagger politico counts as experience . . .
Anyhoo, Mr. LaFaver's response basically goes like this . . .
"First things first: this lien was filed in error, as was confirmed to me by MODOR shortly after I learned of it, 3 years ago. I was assured by MODOR that the matter was closed and that the lien had been removed, and am now in contact with MODOR to see that this is corrected. "
In order to confirm that he solved this "error" that happened 3 years ago, Mr. Lafaver presents letter THAT'S DATED THIS MONTH!!!
I think the most appropriate response from the comments is this one . . .
"Mr. L's response is both lame and incomplete. It wasn't a matter of an inaccurate lien; the state SUED him and THEN he moved to correct the billing.
For those who say $2k, big deal; it is a big deal if it reflects how he handles business. And it probably wouldn't be a big deal if he hadn't brought up fiscal responsibility first!"
Either way . . . This is what we know for sure . . .
WITHOUT AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS THESE FACTS DON'T GET TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY AND NOTHING THAT WE REPORTED WAS INCORRECT!!! IN FACT . . . THIS HOT MESS SUBSEQUENTLY REVEALED THAT MR. LAFAVER DOESN'T HAVE A VERY LONG HISTORY IN KANSAS CITY!!!
Furthermore, I just don't think he's the right style for the corridor and kinda squeaked in because there wasn't a better candidate in Jason Kander's absence.
Anyhoo . . .
Now you have BOTH sides of the story that still don't inspire much confidence in Kansas City Democratic Leadership. Natch.
