TKC TIPSTERS TOLD YOU FIRST!!! CONSTANT KANSAS CITY 5TH DISTRICT CANDIDATE JACOB TURK RESIDENCY QUESTIONED!!!
Last night Kansas City TV watchers learned about residency questions confronting CONSTANT congressional candidate Jacob Turk.
NBC Action News: "Several contenders running for a chance at Rep. Emanuel Cleaver's congressional seat, but two are instead in a bitter battle over where the other one lives."
Luckily, here on TKC our blog community discussed the matter in early July.
Not many people were going to vote for the guy anyhoo but the quest to challenge Congressman Cleaver proves interesting . . .
Here's what a local insider seyz on the topic:
"Turk is unwilling to fully commit to the 5th District, and is banking on an apathetic voting public not realizing that he's now an outsider. Turk continues to falsely blame Representative Cleaver for gerrymandering him out of the district, when district boundaries were actually re-drawn by a Republican dominated Missouri legislature. Look it up. So, Turk is either lying, or he needs to prove his claims.
Regardless, even if Turk won the primary based on name recognition built up over nearly 10 years of campaigning, he can not win in November. The Cleaver campaign will bury him with the residency issue. Turk took a gamble, and lost. He gambled that playing the victim card would work, and that his non-residency would not be an issue in this election, but it is. It's better to get it out now than keep it quiet and disappoint 5th District voters (yet again), in November.
Voters want a representative that lives in their community. They don't want a carpetbagger from outside."
