TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY CAMPAIGN CASH REPORTS TONIGHT!!!



Campaign cash reports are rolling in for July . . .

Here's some of what we find interesting . . .

MAYOR SLY STAYS WINNING AT THE CAMPAIGN FINANCE GAME THIS QUARTER!!!


Our good Mayor weighs in with a princely sum and finishes this quarter ahead . . .

$352,342.01 on hand

He raised more than $42K this quarter . . .

Lots of small donations from lawyers and civic types . . .

A few notable donations . . .

Peggy Dunn - $500

Steve Glorioso - $900

Roshann Parris - $1,250

David Westbrook - $2,220

Kenneth Block - $2,500

Populous - $3,150

Most interesting of all . . .

THE LAWYERS @ POLSINELLI CAME THROUGH WITH MORE THAN $20K FOR THE MAYOR AND FELLOW SHARK!!!

And then . . .

BAD NEWS FOR 3RD DISTRICT AT-LARGE CANDIDATE CRISPIN REA!!!


Rea only raised a measly $1,500 this period to come in at a paltry $8,205. That's not much compared to Quinton Lucas who garnered nearly $45K to start his campaign. Then again, a good deal of that cash already belongs to Freedom, Inc.

Speaking of . . . Dee Evans finishes with $4,815 this quarter but word is she is out of favor with Freedom, Inc. considering the new found influx of cash from Mr. Lucas . . .



Again, there's no denying the SEEMINGLY OVERWHELMING CASH ADVANTAGE HELD BY QUINTON LUCAS!!!

Other races we're watching . . .

TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! JOLIE JUSTUS FINALLY DECLARES HER 4TH DISTRICT COUNCIL BID!!!


She starts out with $650 in her account but she also has more than $100K in her State Senate Fund . . .

Meanwhile, pobrecito John Fierro finishes this quarter with only $5,330 in his bank account . . .


Quick verdict for tonight is that the Kansas City Mexicans stay losing . . .

Across the street @ The Courthouse . . .

SHERWOOD SMITH WINS THE INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISING BATTLE ONCE AGAIN OVER CONTENDER AND BASEBALL LEGEND FRANK WHITE!!!


Sherwood finishes with more than $45K on hand while Frank White has only $7,577 . . .

White spent more than $10k already this quarter and let's take these numbers with a bit of skepticism given that political insiders tell us Mr. Peanut is bankrolling Frank White and the big bucks local political patron is too smart to get bogged down in these campaign finance battles.

Other notables . . .

6th District Councilman Scott Taylor Keeps His Cash Stash . . .


He's still got $117K on hand for some strange reason that may or may not have anything to do with rumor that he wants to be County Exec someday very soon.

Finally . . .

The Toy Train Streetcar TDD Phase Deux Adds A Bit Of Cash To Stay On Track . . .


Funded mostly by Burns & Mac . . . The PAC pushing the toy train streetcar TDD phase deux now holds on to $73K with the promise of more to come from the Heavies.

These are the items that have most of our attention for the moment, feel free to add your own numbers but in the end the most important realization we can muster this evening is that Kansas City politics is about money and nothing besides . . .

Developing . . .

I'd fuck JOLIE JUSTUS in her ass. Then cum all over her face.

I'd rather do Frank White.

Because of the last few years one thing I'm not going to do for a while. Vote for any black and latino candidate.

Call me racist all you want, but the Obama Regime has sobered me to the fact that most of them are con men who never have the best interest at heart of the country, state, county city or town.

So for one to get my vote they have to bend over backwards to convince me to vote for them.

Anonymous said...

According to Crispin's financial disclosure, he only raised $125 during the months of May and June. Wow. Momentum DEATH. Kinda pathetic actually...

What are their views on unsolicited bulk e-mail?

I'd fuck Kathy Jolly in her ass. Then cum all over her tits.

I think you can say that about any politician regardless of race. Mensa boy, for example... .

Did JOLIE JUSTUS get any money from Snap On Tools?

Anonymous said...

POLSINELLI's TDD special toy train assessment (West Edge) is $81 bucks a year so they can afford to give S'LIE $20K.

Amazing what knowing the right people can do for your tax bill isn't it?

Sly will dictate the council! Got it?

Great reporting TKC. Nothing shows who really runs this town quite like the campaign finance report.

You mean to say that Rea might actually have to try to find a real job?
Let's see how far his "resume bulding" from serving for free on a failed school district board gets him in the real world.
He'll end up in yet another make-work job on the taxpayers' dime.
These folks never change.

Anonymous said...

The S'LIE regime just uses kids like Rea to advance their interests. Which is basically padding their resumes, making money, and leaving citizens without any life preservers.

Streetcar in midtown
Regarding the sales tax and the Kansas City streetcar project extension, a true-or-false quiz:

Third District residents are elated that we are included.

Third District residents can’t wait for a streetcar running from Main Street on Linwood Boulevard to Prospect Avenue.

There are numerous attractions on Prospect Avenue.

If for some reason the project doesn’t materialize, Third District residents won’t be stuck with the sales tax.

All of the above are false.

Anonymous said...

After 6 fundraisers at lawfirms in May, Rea raised nothing? Guess his failed school board/intern resume isn't impressing biglaw partners. What a fucking surprise.

Anonymous said...

Since City Council is obviously not a good post-law-school career plan for Crispin Rea, shouldn't he just focus on passing the bar this summer and landing a real job? And by the way, does Jean Peters Baker even know that he claims to "work for" the Jackson County Prosecutor's office in his fundraising emails? Can someone please answer that question?

Anonymous said...

Seeing where the campaign cash comes from and where the taxpayer money goes, it's not hard to see why residents in KCMo don't vote.
Why not just do away with elections and the middleman city councils and just have the swells run the place?
These folks don't even try to put a little perfume on the cowpie.

The Observer said...

This 3rd District thing seems like the sleeper campaign of the season that has suddenly come into full view.

My take: when one candidate has this much cash advantage, this quick, it's game over. Most businesses, law firms, and other major donors play it safe until a "winning horse" emerges, and then they suddenly are all clammoring to jump aboard.

Expect that to happen with this Lucas guy. None of the civic elite who cares about where their money goes is going to bet on anyone else.

The others in the race are washouts, e.g., Evans, Coleman, etc.

Rea may actually have a future in KC politics. But he can't start with an embarrassing loss.

Don't know the guy, but according to this Blog it sounds like he's in the early stages of his career, as is Lucas. Rea's smartest move is to save face and live to fight another day, i.e., say he used the last quarter to assess his priorities in his career, and has decided that running for office is not the best way to serve KC at this point. Withdraw and (presumably) endorse the clear winner, Lucas, and create a friend instead of a bunch of enemies.

Rea may think this is embarrassing, but it is not. It is called smart politics. If he bows out now, people will respect him. If he burns bridges now, he will lose anyway, and his career in politics is over.

Discretion is the greater part of valor.

Anonymous said...

I have a career move for Rea: intern to Quinton Lucas. And since Quinton cares about people, Quinton might even give him his first paid job.

Anonymous said...

Or Crispin can be intern to Cindy Circo. Someone just needs to get him a blue dress.

Anonymous said...

$1500 in three months? Rea could have made more on unemployment.

Oh wait--to get unemployment, you have to have had a paying job.

Why even hold elections if its all about the money? Democracy in Kansas City is stupid.

What a total collection of cum stains. There is

more jism on the faces of that collection of

grifters than covers the floor at Bazookas jack

booths on a Saturday night.

With douche drippings like that bunch, it is very

easy to see why Killa City sucks the big one.

Fuck this place, the Bear is asking for a

transfer to "CLEVELAND"....hell that's a

happening place, nothing like this shit hole.

Sounds like P Bear should go to Cleveland, along with his fucking convention.

Bear is right. Cleveland has much more going on that KC that's for damn sure. Sounds like some of you are the real dipshits. Hint, hint 9:29 and 9:32 with your double post.

True is that 932. Really odd for anonymous avatar that does not have the sack to show his face, to call out others lack of ability.

I think it's like the cum-rape guy, notice me, notice me, NOTICE ME.

Pbear is the skin head that only sucks black cock in the adult theatre upstairs at Bazokas in hit kc weekend nights. His bald skin head is sweaty with black cum. He yells white power then plunges his hot mouth on several black cocks. We even seen Tony in the corner playing with his nipples...

P Bear, are you trying out for spoken word night?

ALL Politicians are con men/ salesmen, they tell you what you want to hear until they are voted in or make the sale then fuck you in the ass every single time. I think the citizens of KC love taking it in the ass!! You morons need to come up with a accountability program for your local government dweebs and hold them accountable when they dont hold true to their promises and take your money and use it as a condom when they bend you over and fuck you in the ass, and actually this country needs a accountability program for all its politicians as well!!! Only YOU could ever make that happen!

11:30 addition to the comment said...

Because you like taking it in the ass so you feel justified in all your bitching and doing nothing to fix anything.

She hired him as an intern, she knows. She has instructed that all “diverse" intern candidates be hired, even if not qualified or a good fit for the office.

Anonymous said...

Jean will hire him. She's already hired Tammy Dickinson's nephew for an attorney spot. Which is funny bc he hasn't taken, much less passed the bar exam at this point. Crispin Rea should ask for that same sweet deal.

elBryan said...

All that means is Crispin didn't attempt to raise $. It's the unfortunate reality of running for office that he'll have to grasp. He's running at large so of he knocks on enough doors and has the right message the $ won't make a huge difference.

Anonymous said...

Here's an idea for the whole KCMO "political class" crowd:
How about actually having a real career in a series of real jobs BEFORE you run for public office?
The notion that serving on a local school board, getting a taxpayer-funded job, and then running for city council is a "political career" is laughable.
Most of these folks bring zero accomplishments and very little in the way of expertise, training, education, or experience to their claims to be ready to make some contribution to their communities. And anyone working in a profession or occupation would tell you that not just anyone can walk through the door and do their jobs.
And the results of constantly electing amateurs and losers is there for all to see, but the swells love people like this because they don't have a clue and are so easily manipulated.
KCMO will never become a leader in the region and it's really too bad.

Wow sum you all be homiesexuals bein all creative bout black cock sukin an all.

Some very stupid individuals that bite, hook, line and sinker, for the Bears trap. He bitches you dumb asses every day.

Is it possible these people are that stupid ? Replying to a polar bear avatar, time and time again. 8:03 is correct. They must be homiesexuals. Funny.

Byron Funkhouser is in the house said...

9:29, 9:32, 10:02, 11:11, 11:15, 11:21 all the same sicko. Everytime bear makes a post he appears. Sounds a lot like Byron Funkhouser. Byron is that you ? The posts are really stupid like Byrons and they come in spurts as it takes Byron several minutes to take a toke and think of something really stupid to say. Yep, Byron Funkhouser is the poster.

Sure does sound like Byron @ 9:10. I agree with your post.
