TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! CONTENDER ANN McGREGOR DID NOT KILL DUTCH NEWMAN BUT SHE COULD LOSE ELECTION TO BELOVED AND DECEASED KANSAS CITY POLITICAL MATRIARCH!!!
Right now we need to clear the name of a long-running Kansas City political contender who faces some nasty Internets allegations.
This trashy comment was recently posted and deserves a fact check . . .
"Ann McGregor killed "Dutch." Ann McGregor's hateful challenge to our beloved 5th Ward Democratic Committeewoman killed "Dutch." She did not need this stress.
"YOU WILL LIVE WITH THIS CRIME FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE ANN! God will need answers from you!"
TKC FACT CHECK: NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH, DUTCH WAS SICK FOR YEARS BEFORE HER DEMISE WAS DUE TO HEALTH REASONS NOT STRESS OR HOMICIDE!!! HER DEATH @ 95 WAS SAD BUT NOT UNEXPECTED!!!
At that age, every day is a miracle (as it is at any age) but this bit of rhetoric needs to be stopped post haste and we want to be the 1st to contradict the misguided notion that's already becoming a pretty good Midtown KC joke.
Now that we got that taken care of . . . There's something more interesting at play . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS ARE CALLING ON VOTERS TO CHOOSE DUTCH DESPITE HER CURRENT CONDITION AND McGREGOR COULD SUFFER AN EMBARRASSING DEFEAT TO A DEAD LADY!!!
Remember that this kind of Missouri political afterlife political triumph happened in 2000 when Missouri voted for Mel Carhahan over John Ashcroft after a tragic plane crash took the life of the former politico engaged in a Senate battle. And so . . . This moment of rare Democratic glory in Missouri is being used as a touchstone to keep the memory of Dutch alive despite the impulse of more macabre local Democratic denizens to look at this tragic episode as a bit of good timing for Ms. McGregor in her controversial JaxCo 5th Ward Committee quest.
TKC FIRST . . . Right now newsie hacks are working this angle and talking with JaxCo election authorities about what happens if Dutch beats Ann McGregor in death . . . But we wanted our TKC Blog Community to have the news FIRST as usual. Natch.
