LEES'S SUMMIT TURNABOUT: SUBURBAN POLITICAL CRUSADER AGAINST FORMER COUNCIL DUDE CHRIS MORENO NOW CONFRONTS FELONY CONSEQUENCES!!!



The sordid affairs of Sleaze Scummit politics keep getting curiouser and curiouser as a dude who championed reform on a suburban council is now embroiled in his own legal drama.

To wit . . .

CHECK NOTEWORTHY STORY OF STEALING CHARGES AGAINST A DUDE WHO RECENTLY RAGED OVER THE TOPIC OF SMALL TIME CIVIC ETHICS!!!

As always, we believe that any suspect is innocent until proven guilty but there is no denying the irony of the accusations.

Info:

LS Tribune: Steven M. Lathrop, Outspoken Critic of Former City Councilmember Chris Moreno, Arrested on Felony Fraud and Stealing

Deets:

"A Lee’s Summit resident, Steven M. Lathrop, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of fraud and stealing from his former employer, Master File Legal Support Services. Lathrop allegedly overcharged Master File for a total of $74,011.75 from October 2015 until May of this year.

"According to court records, Lathrop was charged with four felony counts of a Fraudulent Use of a Credit/Debit device, $500 or more; two Class D Felony counts of stealing, $750 or more; and one Class C Felony count of stealing, $25,000 or more.

"The charges were filed on August 25, 2017."

LS Tribune followup:

The arrest of a local man on felony fraud and stealing charges has raised questions about the man’s contributions to local causes, and whether he used stolen funds for those contributions.

The reality here offers just a bit of a teaching moment . . . The civic adventures of this dude make his ALLEGED misdeeds a bigger part of the public record and might, just might, spark the comeback of one of the most controversial politicos in recent local history.

Developing . . .

Another instance of pot calling kettle black.

Of course, in the case of Moreno, the kettle was really really black.
A 60% recall vote is not exactly a close election.
