REPUBLICAN CONSULTANT CATHY NUGENT KICKED TO THE CURB AMID CONTENTIOUS KANSAS CITY GOP 2016 CONVENTION BID!!!
Okay, only insiders are going to care about this one but it might provide a nice bit of fun and games if we kick it around for a bit . . .
INEVITABLY, CATHY NUGENT HAS BEEN KICKED TO THE CURB AND SHE'S NO LONGER A PART OF THE EFFORT TO LURE THE GOP CONVENTION TO KANSAS CITY!!!
Helling's take on this event that happened about a week ago is pretty good: Woman who gave birth to KC's push for 2016 GOP convention is now off the team
And so . . .
Who is Cathy Nugent? Who cares?
It's kind of important and worth explaining . . .
Cathy Nugent is a local GOP Lady Republican consultant and her last big deal was a push to privatize KC's Water Department along with some other campaign work that's a bit more "grassroots" than the high flying stuff we see from guys like Jeff Roe.
Now here's the fun part . . .
FACTIONS LOYAL TO NUGENT SAY THAT MAYOR SLY'S PEOPLE BULLIED HER, STOLE HER IDEA AND THEN PUSHED HER OUT!!!
Their excuse to her: "Nobody liked her."
She seemed nice enough to me . . . But I'm an optimist like that . . .
Again, most people in Kansas City might not care about the planners of a Kansas City conservative party that's never going to happen but the tale offers a nice perspective about working with Mayor Sly and typical GOP double crossing.
