TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS CALL OUT KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY STAFFER PRIVILEGE @ JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE CONCERT LAST NIGHT!!!
This morning let's take a moment of pause to consider Kansas City politicos COMPED at all of this town's best events.
To wit . . .
RIGHT NOW A KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER CALLS OUT THE SPECIAL PRIVILEGES OF THE MAYOR'S PEEPS @ LAST NIGHT'S JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE SPRINT CENTER CONCERT!!!
Here's the word . . .
"TKC, I noticed that Mayoral aides Larissa W. and Jim G.were at Justin Timberlake tonight. The mayoral and city council staff often use free tickets from the city--which seems like a form of largesse to me. Jim G. also had free tickets to Cher and Madonna. Cindy Circo is another "frequent flyer" in the free Sprint Center seats. I also often see these folks at Starlight performances--again, with comped tickets. Particularly with a show like Cher, which sold out, it seems really unfair."
There have been problems with these freebie seats before and most Kansas City Insiders kinda resent the freebie perk of elected office.
TKC FUN FACT: THE VERY BEST KANSAS CITY FREEBIE TICKETS HAVE INSPIRED A MENTION FROM NO LESS THAN HALF-A-DOZEN CITY COUNCIL CONTENDERS WHEN IT COMES TO THE REAL MOTIVATION IN THEIR RUN FOR OFFICE!!! THE SEATS ARE REALLY QUITE NICE!!!
(TKC Full Disclosure . . . Your least favorite blogger has enjoyed the sweet Mayoral/City Council Sprint Center luxury box no less than three times.)
Sadly, this Kansas City ticket comping isn't going to stop any time soon but the perk remains a constant complaint among the local elite who don't like their good times ruined by having to share the VIP rooms with smarmy politicos.
More a bit later in the morning . . .
