TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! SHOW-ME A STRONG DEFENSE OF MISSOURI SEN. PAUL LEVOTA!!!



TKC Note: Yesterday we posted a missive regarding the influence of MO State. Sen. Paul LeVota and the piece elicited more reaction than we thought . . .

For a second, I tried to play reporter and get a comment on the story before it ran but I was pleasantly surprised that Sen. LeVota was busy . . . Which is rare for a politico.

Anyhoo . . . Here's some more insight on the story from another Kansas City Insider who provides additional deets.

Check it:

Sen. Paul LeVota Probably Gonna Be Okay

For the record, Councilwoman Roxann Thorley was the democratic incumbent who was selected by the council to fill the term until April. Thorley was a political unknown with no previous experience but proved to be a good advocate in her six months on the council and gained labor's endorsement. She was challenged by republican dentist Scott Roberson who has lived in Independence for 60 years. Also on the ballot that day was his brother, insurance salesman Scott Roberson who was running for school board that he had served on for over 12 years on the ballot. Roberson had huge name recognition and it was obvious that it would be a tough re-election as Thorley had never run before. And in the days before the election Roberson dumped over $10,000 in negative mailers against Thorley.

So Roberson had name recognition and outspent Thorley, 3 to 1. That is the objective take away from that race. Senator LeVota endorsed her because he supported a labor endorsed democrat over a republican. LeVota did not donate money to her campaign. To categorize it as only LeVota's endorsement as a reason for the loss and a comment on his influence fails to mention that he also endorsed the new mayor Eileen Weir and the new mayor pro tem Councilman Chris Whiting (who is also his best friend of over 30 years) who both won election last week. LeVota endorsed a mayor and 3 councilmembers in the race. The mayor and 2 of them were elected. How about that as a comment of influence? Oh, that's right, the person trying to feed you half of a story to get a negative posted forgot to tell you that. I think his influence in Independence is just fine.

Bear had you covered !


Anyways , the Lavotas ? They run the whore shops and freak place near Erotic City? How about the scrap yards and such on the East side? Sounds like they think they are the shit over there..

Glad to help "u-b-e guy"

The Bear loved the "pegging Skippy" comment. That was stratospheric.

When the combination of underfunded pensions, the Bass Pro bonds and an arena without a tenant bankrupt Independence you can thank all these incompetent pols who spend their days fighting for the scraps.

Okay. 7:08 . You mean the LeVotas correct?

Sounds like a bunch of crooks. Did they help with the Bass Pro Shop inside job. ???

OK, this is total BS. Thorley outspent Roberson by a wide margin and the Levotas were all in on her. they can try to spin this giant turd, but they got their bell rung by a newbie moderate republican candidate in their own back yard. they better watch out because Paul has shown his weakness.

Cant spin also that those tools helped Schultz. They were 0-3. The R's are coming Paul. Its your turn after all the BS you pull in Jeff.

Wait, Phil RAN HER CAMPAIGN, and PAUL APPEARED ON 4 if her 7 (yes, 7) mailers. They went all over town touting her as THEIR hand picked person. No way to talk around it, they got schooled and embarrassed. Now they look VERY VERY vulnerable. Payback time for the Cierpoit lies.

Wow! With all the interlocking names and drama this reads like a Russian novel.
A very bad and amateurish Russian novel.
And the public actually has to PAY for people like this?

Thorley was an unknown beaten by a known Roberson family name. Looks like 9:26 is a Levota hater. Don't be jealous because you didn't have the balls to file ANYONE against Paul. You're just jealous because Paul is the senator and continues to be one of the most effective leaders in Jackson County & Jefferson City. As a democratic leader, he endorsed a democratic candidate but her loss has nothing to do with HIS ability. Paul's handpicked mayor won and his best friend (who crushed your friend Cierpiot)is the new mayor pro tem. Don't see much vulnerability there. But you are just one of the anonymous cowardly trash talker and lie spreaders. And frankly, if you see any vulnerability, I'm betting the Levota boys would tell you to "bring it!"

11:30 Effective leader in Jackson County...... BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
LeVota boys ... BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You got very lucky against Patrick. His "campaign manager" was in bed with you and he purposely tanked his campaign. We don't make the same mistakes a second time. Paul's sad performance did display his vulnerability to people all over this state and the 11th will be back on the map for 2016. Good luck trying to cut deals to keep an opponent away, you're going to need it. We're energized, well funded and coming for some deserved payback. Oh, and also, you guys are lazy and not very good at what you do.

So Weir is Paul's handpicked Mayor of Methtown, huh? Tell us more 11:30 AM unless you too are as cowardly as you advance to others.

And btw speaking of "coward" how 'bout namin' names unless you fit yer own pusillanimus term.

Paul will have opposition and Phil will have his hands full. That is another bet you can get in on for a bettin' man such as your Levota lovin' self.

News Flash...I am runnin' against the Senator with that magnificent and intelligent smile who has Phil's hand all the way up his ass to his lips.

Wow, 1:10 and 1:13, if you are know of opposition or you are running against Levota, let's hear specifics and identify yourself. Didn't think so. The other poster got it right, you are cowards.

12:35, 1:10, and 1:13 are the same person. Simple IP address check.

12:35. There was no luck when Chris Whiting CRUSHED your candidate Patrick Cierpiot and that had nothing to do with Levota. And if you were so mad and well funded, why didn't you file against Whiting this year? Oh I think the word being thrown around is "coward" because that's what you are. Big talker as anonymous but I guess you are not as energized and well funded as you talk because you showed your inability when you missed your opportunity to avenge Patrick Cierpiot against Whiting this year and you didn't even file anyone against him. Now Whiting is mayor pro tem for four years and you are still an anonymous blogger that will never be anything!

Ya know sumthin 1:32 pm...You're Right.

The LeVota gang and cronies can not be beat.

Nothing to be concerned about here.

Paul will lose to a republican or a bold Democrat. No two ways about it!

Anonymous said...

Patrick was the superior candidate, but got sold out by John Carnes. You didn't win, Patrick lost. Lesson learned. Whiting won this time because no one ran against him. Duh. His only negative is his relationship with the corrupt Levotas. But, he is beginning to see the light too after the wood was laid on April 8th. How's it feel boys? Like feeling my paddle on your ass? Paul/Phil better start circling the wagons, because the indians are coming. And they are looking for Shrek's scalp.

"The LeVota gang and cronies can not be beat."...Um, except they just were, 2-1 in all races, with less money. By Republicans in a Democratic district. Only races they win is when they scare, bully and threaten decent people out of the races. These people are scum, and lazy scum at that.

BTW, can Phil and Paul cheat on their wives any more? I swear I thought they were both divorced. And don't think that won't come up in 2016 boys.

Wait 5:08, now you are mad at the Levota boys because women like them more than you? Don't know about their attraction but safe to say it it is probably much better than your anonymous blogging, non-game, miserable attempt at girls or you wouldn't be posting on here!! Grow up and don't be such a hater. Try talking to a girl. They aren't so scary.

And you ought to be careful with your public allegations about non-political stuff. A simple subpoena can get your IP address for a slander lawsuit and we all know you can't afford a lawyer!!
