TKC EXCLUSIVE QUESTION: DID JAXCO EXEC MIKE SANDERS RUIN HIS SHOT IN THE MISSOURI ATTORNEY GENERAL RACE??!?!
Kansas City political insiders are surprised at a rare misstep from Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders.
To wit . . .
JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE SANDERS DEFENDING DISGRACED MO HOUSE REP. JEREMY LAFAVER AMID A POT BUST SCANDAL MIGHT HAVE DESTROYED HIS CHANCES AT WINNING A RACE FOR MISSOURI ATTORNEY GENERAL!!!
The money quote from the otherwise politically astute Jackson County politico . . .
"Attitudes of 10, 15, 20 years ago are not the attitudes of today," said Sanders in an interview with KMBC TV, “so not only does it not impact Democrats in Missouri, I don’t think it impacts Jeremy as well, in the long term”.
Actually, that's not completely correct given that word from Jeff City is that the GOP is having a field day with this one.
Remember that County Exec Sanders and Missouri Democrats are hinting about a run for AG.
Now . . .
STANDING UP FOR A NEWBIE DEMOCRATIC PARTY POLITICO AMID A POT BUST SCANDAL AT THE OUTSET OF A RED STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL RUN DOESN'T INSPIRE CONFIDENCE!!!
The former prosecutor arguing that a weed bust is no big deal for a Democratic political ally won't play well in a statewide election. Either the County Exec has a very short memory OR he isn't serious about being Attorney General in Missouri. Either way, Jackson County still busts people weed and this CLEAR DOUBLE STANDARD reveals that elected officials in Kansas City have seemingly put political alliances above the law.
