TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! BUCKLEY BOWS OUT: STILL NO OPPONENT FOR MISSOURI HOUSE REP. JEREMY LAFAVER FOLLOWING HIS EPIC POT BUST!!!
This year's embarrassing weed bust of Missouri House Rep. Jeremy LaFaver pretty much made a joke out of just about every statewide Missouri Democratic Party politico in Kansas City.
What followed was a mostly racist effort to forgive the foibles of the elected official despite the fact that drug crime mercy is noticeably absent from the urban core and minority offenders caught in similar circumstances. In the aftermath a GOP dude made an odd and ill-timed announcement regarding his intentions to run against LaFaver.
Now it seems that same GOP dude has changed his mind and probably realized there's no way a Republican will win that seat.
The latest from Fred Buckley in a kind Christmas message sent personally to TKC so we would know "from the horse's mouth" and "in case you'd like to talk directly to me instead of about me" which is always a good idea.
Fred Buckley Seyz: "Ladies and Gentlemen, after a wonderful Christmas with my family and a lot of discussions with my wife, I have decided to withdraw from the race for State Representative of the 25th District. It is with a heavy heart that I make this decision, as I believe our district needs better representation than we are getting right now. However my family and my business must come first.
After spending 3 years in law school, it is time to focus on building up my law practice, serving my family and being a husband and father. I look forward to the day when I can serve you in some capacity. I hope that our current State Representative will work hard for the district and start setting a good example for our younger generation instead of the examples he has set in the past."
That last line offers a nice stab at the Missouri political weed smoker even if there's nothing to back it up.
Fred's website has 404'd and for the moment it seems as if a weed bust politico will be representing one of the richest districts in Kansas City for a second term.
Accordingly . . .
KANSAS CITY DEMOCRAT INSIDERS SUGGEST THAT IT MIGHT BE EASY FOR LAFAVER TO WIN REELECTION DESPITE HIS WEED BUST!!! THERE'S AN ACTIVE EFFORT TO SUPPRESS ANY COMPETITION AGAINST THE POLITICO GUILTY OF WEED CRIME!!!
And once again, like so many other Kansas City politicos . . . The political career of Jeremy LaFaver started with a lot of high ideals (giggle) and promises but has evolved into nothing more than an effort to stay in power.
