TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DEMOCRATIC PARTY BOSS STEPHEN BOUGH "BOOTED" FROM NOMINATION TO JACKSON COUNTY SPORTS AUTHORITY!!!
Jackson County Democratic Chairman Stephen Bough has been withdrawn as an appointment to the Jackson County Sports Authority sources confirmed today.
In other words and in keeping with our TKC vernacular . . .
EASTERN JACK POLITICAL PAYBACK REACHED OUT AND TOUCHED STEPHEN BOUGH AND REMOVED HIM FROM THIS INFLUENTIAL JACKSON COUNTY SPORTS AUTHORITY COMMITTEE NOMINATION!!!
I'll leave the TKC Blog Community to debate the implications of this debacle. But here's what Jackson County Insiders are saying RIGHT NOW . . .
"(Jackson County Executive) Mike Sanders thought he had made the peace between (MO State Sen. Paul) LeVota and Bough and put a decent team together. That team has just fallen apart and it's clear that our County Executive has dwindling influence at The State Level."
Another insider perspective . . .
"This says nothing about Stephen Bough as a candidate. He was well qualified. It's just that certain Missouri Senators have an idea about how they want to use their influence this is how they did it . . . It's just a classic, ongoing Eastern Jack Family Feud."
The Eastern Jack Family Feud line is PERFECT, very descriptive of this controversy and brings a country music soundtrack to my mind.
Also . . .
BEHIND THE SCENES EVERYONE SEEMS TO AGREE THAT THIS IS SEN. PAUL LEVOTA BRINGING HIS INFLUENCE DOWN ON STEPHEN BOUGH OVER LONG STANDING POLITICAL BEEF!!!
Inappropriate TKC Joke . . . Jackson County Politics is tough and this squabble is important but really a lot less rough than previous fighting that led to some old man getting choked out at a public meeting.
Now, here are some important caveats: Mr. Bough was withdrawn and not rejected so he MIGHT be able to be reconsidered again. But for the moment it's back to the drawing board for Jackson County.
And so the session starts with a great deal of Missouri Democratic Party infighting as the political landscape begins to shift.
