Northeast Kansas City Election Primary Recall Against Ingrid Burnett Campaign Tactics???

Once again talk of electioneering tactics hits the Northeast and this time word of questionable campaign operations is directed against the supporters of a white lady who usually quits when things get too tough. Take a look: Rizzo, Burnett win primaries; Abarca yet to concede

On the charge of electioneering too close to poll entrances, it would be up to the election board to police this. A civil suit over "he said /she said" isn't going to carry any weight in court.

Rizzo's won his first election by one vote, and at least two of his relatives voted for him illegally (then there were the non-citizen Somalis - another story). Even with this evidence, the judge refused to overturn the election results. So, I don't like Abarca's chances.

He already conceded in a phone call to Ingrid.

Abarca conceded. And besides, he wouldn't be filing a lawsuit against Burnett, he would need to file a lawsuit against the MO SOS. They defend those suits very aggressively. The chances of a favorable outcome on his behalf would be 0%.

I'm confused. The story says he conceded. Which is it?

Rizzo = Voter Fraud.

Manny won by 20 votes in the part of this district where Ingrid's husband used to represent because folks have seen Manny's hard work here over the past four years, and our parks are safer and cleaner because of him. However, we've seen nothing from Ingrid ever since she resigned before the end of her last elected position. Ask anyone; she doesn't attend neighborhood meetings or anything.

However, by besmirching a community activist to folks in Independence and Sugar Creek by sending out a racist and misleading mailer, she was able to dupe enough folks that are unfamiliar with Manny's qualifications and hard work into believing she was actually the more qualified candidate. Anyone who attended the forum at SVN knows better. She won by 40 votes in Independence by dropping a "Birther" strategy mere days before the election. It was absolutely shameful. I guess that's politics but certainly not the way to represent a diverse community.

Everyone who rents their home in District 19; in her own words, she does not represent you. I felt like she would have been a decent representative until I learned what a terrible person she is.

Bryan Stalder, Esq., are you insinuating that the voters of Independence and Sugar Creek aren’t educated enough to form an opinion outside of political mailers? They were duped? That’s insulting. Ingrid has an outstanding reputation in our community. She taught me and my kids, and has always gone to bat for us. I’m sure your friend, Manny, is a nice guy. Maybe he’s even picked up trash in the park. That’s great! But he came off as inexperienced and looking like he just moved into the area so that he could kick off his political career. We here in Sugar Creek need a representative who will actually listen us. Someone we know, and someone who will go to bat for us. They split up our town with district lines, and ever since then we have had NO ONE listen to us. They feel like it’s not worth it. Don’t make it out to sound like we’re a bunch of rednecks who didn’t know any better. We know Ingrid here. Manny, not so much.
