WHERE ARE THEY NOW KANSAS CITY??? JAMIE METZL STAYS WINNING!!!



With so much residency fighting in the upcoming 5th District (Slap-fight) Primary, KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS thought it would be fun to take a look at the only guy to ever offer a serious challenge to Congressman Cleaver.

Not so long ago a Democratic primary tore Kansas City apart because it divided the party along racial lines and at the time a promising politico name Sly James double-crossed Congressman Cleaver in a bit of political pandering that still shapes today's KCMO landscape . . . Note: It's always fun to see Sly's supporters claim over and over again that all is forgiven and Cleaver and Sly are now best buddies and play video games together or whatever . . .

Anyhoo . . . Jamie Metzl may not have proven victorious and it turns out he's nowhere near Kansas City (just like TKC argued way back then) BUT he has moved on to bigger and better things.

Wikipedia says:

Jamie Frederic Metzl is an American writer, a partner in Cranemere Inc., an investment holding company and a Senior Fellow at the Asia Society. He was formerly the Asia Society's Executive Vice President. He developed and led the Asia Society's Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative, the organization's Pan-Asia-Pacific leadership development program.

In other words, things worked out PRETTY AWESOME for this guy even if his choice in running attire and decor seems unfortunate at best.

More in a bit . . .

Do he and his pals prance about on the furniture, drinking pumpkin ale and squealing?

Metzl claimed to have strong roots in KC, but ONLY returned when he thought he could get into Congress from here. The criticism of his "carpetbagging" ways was spot-on.

Voters saw him as a gay East-coast carpetbagger friend of the Clinton machine, and rejected him.

Why did a certain local woman hate Metzl so much?
