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Jackson County Democratic Chairman Stephen Bough has been withdrawn as an appointment to the Jackson County Sports Authority sources confirmed today.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 Bough was withdrawn and not rejected so he MIGHT be able to be reconsidered again.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.

DEVELOPING . . .

Skippy is real weak on his own. His damn lies and excruciating failed deal making is down right embarrassing to witness. That old boy wonder needs to watch "Preppers". get an idea how to survive his own doomsday from office.

A bad defeat for the party chair. Woe is Mike

Well, he looks like a nimrod!

Is everyone stupid? The county legislature sends nominees and the GOVERNOR picks the candidate. This is way bigger than some local squabble. Paul just made his first act as a senator slapping the governor's pick. We will see how that works out in the long run.

Paul is an idiot. He's still playing last year's game.

The Governor is he a Democrat

The easy story is to make it about Sanders and LeVota but this story is that Steve Bough just got a huge lesson in politics. Paul and Mike are just fine. The problem is that all of Steve Bough's arrogant ways came home to roost with many Missouri Senators, not just Senator LeVota. The Missouri Senate just made Bough pay for his actions. The governor realized that Bough was going to be embarrassed so told Bough to just resign instead of face public embarrassment on the Missouri Senate floor! And after all is said and done, Mike Sanders, Paul LeVota, and Jay Nixon will all get along famously. Its the "I'm above it all" Bough that is the odd man out.

Didn't Steve Bough lie to Freedom Inc. and backstab the minority community in Jackson County? Did you think they would forget, Stevie?

Hey folks, remember several years ago when Steve Bough was publicly telling anyone that would listen that then Missouri Senator Charlie Wheeler was a "liar.?" There are senators that served with Wheeler that may not have liked him but still would not stand for someone disrespecting a Missouri Senator and then think that guy would get through a senate confirmation without problems. Is this Bough guy that much of a moron?

Skippy BooBoo got slapped down, BooBoo didn't get his tiara? What a pity! Three cheers for whoever made this happen. The Gov is a DINO; he is no rose in the Democrat bouquet. Now if only Victor could escort Skippy out of politics.

Bough's first act as a sports authority member was to elect a REPUBLICAN instead of a DEMOCRAT as the chairman of the authority. Bough has no integrity at all and certainly isn't a democrat. Good work, Missouri Senate for not just rolling over and confirming a political hack!

The Kansas City Chiefs were adamantly against Steve Boo's confirmation and they reached out to senators from across the state. New coach, new general manager, and new politics! Go Chiefs!

Someone please find out how many of Steve Bough's friends tried to help him? Did anyone call Levota and other senators in his behalf? I am betting none because he has no friends. Just a naive and mean spirited rich lawyer that thinks his $250 donations here and there make him a political broker.

Jay Nixon and Mike Sanders just showed you how important Steve Bough is. Not at all. How's the underside of a bus feel, Steve?

You never should have called Terry Riley the "N" word, Steve! We all heard it and so did everyone else.

You shouldn't have given so much money to republican Sarah Steelman, Steve! We all know about it and you got a pass on it....until now!

Steve Bough is not the "Democratic Party boss" . He lied about his backroom deals with Freedom. We lost the chairmanship. We will never forget.

A democratic governor doesn't get one of his democratic cronies a position from a republican senate. Not really a news flash Tony.

To Steve Bough:
It was a Senate confirmation, dummy. Did you not understand that you needed to go kiss all the senator's asses? You might not like it but that's politics, dumb ass. You aren't bigger than the system.

RIP any political life for Steve Bough. A lesson in arrogance.

What is sad is that Bough not only didn't get this appointment, but he will NEVER get anything else. Go chase ambulances, Steve!

I'll bet Sanders' new appointee will get better coaching on how this process works!

Is'nt Senator Curls a member of the lied and double crossed Freedom Inc.?

Tony you just coined a new phrase describing getting your ass kicked politically......getting Boughted/Booted!!

Jason Holtzman just BOOTED Steve Bough for supporting Crystal! Looks like Big Red has some balls after all!

The patronage traditions place this appointment with the State Senators -- the governor does what the senators say.

If we like the way things work or not Paul deserves his own candidate, and he has plenty of reasons not to pick Steve Bough, the county executive has no standing in the dispute.

Steve Bough is an arrogant rich guy. He relished in the fact that he was a CONSERVATIVE Democrat, which means he claimed the right to hate Blacks, Hispanics, and Gays. In addition, he reserved the right to tell a few anti-Catholic jokes (and not about corrupt bishops) and to use SCAB printers.

Bye Steve.

Guess what Steve. You will NEVER be a Federal Judge either. Better get used to the fact that you will be chasing ambulances for the rest of your life.

Big Red is settling a lot of scores in the last few days. He is going to make Crystal vote to create a sweet job for Cathy Jolly on Monday.

THE BIG RED WON!

Don't cross the LeVotas. They can hold grudges like Eastern Europeans.

Missouri Senators just sent a message - Republicans work to ensure corruption by high-jacking citizens tax dollars in Jackson County.

Republican Senators go after one of the individuals that cleaned up the fraudulent misuse of tax dollars by the Royals and Chiefs management. NICE…….VOTE…….DUMBASSES…….So much for honest quality oversight on the spending of Jackson County Tax dollars on the local citizen owned and paid for stadiums at the Jackson County Sport Complex.

Seems Republican Senators in Springfield, Joplin, St. Charles, and Macon Missouri are better suited to decide who will best protect Jackson County tax dollars from greed driven misuses by fellow Republicans David Glass and Clark Hunt. Thanks Missouri Republican Senators…Once agin publicly displaying ignorance for a campaign donation.

Tomorrows Kansas City Star Headline:

Taxpayers lose again, Corporate Sports Owners get rich on contract loophole……... Republican Senators across Missouri see large increase in campaign donations…


Last one to leave Jackson County needs to turn off the lights …

Bough things always come full circle. It's unfortunate you did those that looked up to you wrong. Politics does that.

Most importantly: What does John Rizzo think?

Bough always opposed LGBT rights,if he did not he would have spoke up for them. What goes around comes around.

Steve Bough is a lawyer's lawyer, a good Christian, a wonderful father and a loyal friend. People like Steve who won't sell their souls to the devil can't make it in politics. Vic Callahan and Paul LeVota: it's why you've survived in politics.
