Doesn't matter how much cash he raises. He loses my vote. Any affiliation with Freedom, Inc. is a no-go. Fuck 'em. He's like all the other Negros... I got this. I got that. Look at my new J's. Been there done it. Over it.

6:20 PM Idiot. He's aligned with the old guard. His pathetic cousin Ricardo Lucas is chomps as the ass-core of the Old Guard. Did you not see that he is a Freedom Inc. troll?

Sorry, Freedom is for Dee Williams, "Eye Roll". Who are you trollin' for?

Jesus. 45K? That's gotta be a record or something. How much do the other people have? Anyone know?

And with all this money he can tell the voters about his knowledge and plans for city government.
Right?
So what are they?

***MEDIA ADVISORY***

For Immediate Release

Kansas City, MO: Crispin Rea, young gun extraordinare and America's Top Intern, announced that he has accepted an exalted position as a Conductor of the Toy Train.

"This position was really too much to turn down," said Rea. He added, "I was weighing competing offers of several internships, but this position offers full-time employment, plus a really neat conductor's hat. It's just like Fritz's."


"Along this corridor, I can see Kansas City rising. You see, I'm connected to neighborhoods," said Rea, referring to the economic revitalization going on between 12th and 20th Streets, and not much of anyplace else.

Though Rea will be leaving full-time unpaid intern life, he will stay on as a member of several unpaid advisory commissions. "Though I will be busy with my new position, I just couldn't step away from it 100%"

This is bullshit! Crispin Rea works for the prosecutor Jean Peters Baker. That means he has a job and is paid by the city. Stop spreading lies about Crispin you stupid troll.

Crispin is an attorney just like Quinton Lucas otherwise he would not be working for Jean Peters Baker. Lay off, troll!

Anonymous said...

...and he'll be able to actually practice law and get paid if he passes his bar exam.

People like Rea are just more of the same old amateur D-list celebrity "political class" in KCMO. The go from one taxpayer-funded job to the next, never accomplishing much of anything but "building their resume" of public service so they can climb the insider political ladder.
Work for the prosecutor, run for council, get termed out and work for some nonprofit that you helped get money while you were in office, run for something else, then back to the county, and on and on.
And residents in KCMO wonder why their ideas and needs aren't met?

I thought Crispin was already a practicing lawyer because it says on his fundraising letters that he works for the prosecutor's office. Is he getting paid by Jean Peters Baker or not? Is he a lawyer or not?

Anonymous said...

Not a lawyer. Crispin is an Intern. Works for free. I think he purposely writes his fundraising letters to mislead people into thinking he's a prosecutor. Hasn't even passed the bar yet.
