Kansas City Council Dude Scott Taylor Crowned Mayoral Campaign Cash King

Biz Journal "news" offers a story our blog community covered back in July. But here's an update that might or might not be worth a click and is perfectly timed to coincide with the Mayoral campaign debut of Council Lady Jolie Justus:

Taylor leads KC mayoral money race by a landslide - Kansas City Business Journal

If Kansas City mayor's races were decided by the number of dollars candidates raised, Councilman Scott Taylor would appear to be an overwhelming favorite to win the city's top elective office in 2019. According to latest quarterly campaign reports filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission, Taylor is winning the money battle against three other candidates hoping to succeed Mayor Sly James - by a landslide.

I think what he means is...there will be no left in Kansas City because Jolie will have eaten everyone up.

What size will her new dildo be?

^^^ Will having your tapioca privileges revoked cause you to refrain from posting inane stuff like that?

Scott can't find enough money to get himself elected to Mayor's office. He and his wife are "smile your on TV
automatons". The public has seen what they do not accomplish. The public has listened to their talk talk with no action. I doubt he will place fifth in the race.

Taylor did a very smart thing: Even though he effectively had no opponent in 2015, he raised a ton of money (not hard for a guy who was certain to be on the Council for another four years) and spent almost none of it. He just piled it up -- something our City contribution ordinance lets him do. Since he had hardly had a campaign in 2011, either, the cumulative effect is that donors (including corporate donors until 12/1/16) were free to give him 2 1/2 to 3 TIMES what other mayoral candidates ever can receive. That is how Scott (quite legally) ends up with a $300,00+ advantage.

Does this create an unfair advantage? DUH! But "reform" laws often have unintended consequences. It is not enough to "mean well". Term limits has only made government -- City and state -- worse. Contribution limits CREATED "dark money".

There are no quick fixes or simple solutions to dysfunctional government. Citizens cannot just pass a petition and go back to "Game of Thrones." Self-government requires self-involvement.
