TKC EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK: WIDOW OF SLAIN KANSAS CITY BROOKSIDE LAWYER TOM PICKERT CHAMPIONED PROGRESSIVE DEFENSE OF OBAMACARE!!!



So much of the reporting on a horrific murder in a middle-class Kansas City neighborhood lacks context. While locals lament the media focus on this homicide over the other 120 killings within city limits this year, the politics and legal battles surrounding the tragedy have inspired coverage from across the globe.

But here's something they're missing . . .

AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS REMIND OUR BLOG COMMUNITY THAT THE WIDOW OF SLAIN LAWYER TOM PICKERT WAS A STRIDENT DEFENDER OF OBAMACARE!!!

In fact, she took a leadership role in local advocacy against TrumpCare this Summer. Dr. Emily Riegel served as a member of the board of Indivisible Kansas City. Remember that this group staged protests at the offices of elected officials throughout the metro in defense of the Affordable Care Act.

Here's a sample of her fiery tirade against Republicans hoping to repeal the insurance mandate in favor of TrumpCare:

"It is galling to realize that for more than seven years, the GOP hasn’t offered any other plan, or even tried to improve upon the current plan. Despite what proponents say about AHCA being better, we are still waiting for their evidence. Where is the evidence that it will provide access to affordable, secure, evidence-based healthcare when we need it and without bankrupting us (or the nation) in the process?"

Like it or not, the powerful progressive politics Tom Picker's widow provides more context into the circumstances of this horrific murder or at least informs us that she was also a very outspoken public figure as police continue their investigation of a "targeted" killing in one of Kansas City's nicer enclaves.

Strange case.

i guess the public figure angle of both the husband and wife could open up the pool of suspects further, if that is what you're saying.

I'm hoping a certain perennial (daily?) commenter doesn't weigh in here...

Some articles list her as the lead organizer with Indivisible KC. She also helped to organize the women's march in Kansas City.

So she was actually a good person trying to make the world a better place for people who needed help. And had a horrible tragedy befall her.

And people say we don't need gun control.

^^ We have gun control. You see how well it's working, ANd you want more of it?

Sad situation, her politics doesn't make her any less of a victim along with her children who are now fatherless. Still offering prayers for the family.

So now you are attacking the widow.

You piece of shit.

She opened herself up for this so, yes. I agree she should be allowed to grieve first before we bash her politics

4:02 +1. No kidding. How dare a doctor, who takes the Hippocratic oath, want all people to have health care?!? In the warped mind of tony bo-tay-oh, she deserved to have her husband murdered by an old psychopath with a long history of violence.

Anonymous said...

She was probably trying to drum up business for the ambulance chaser that caught lead.

Plenty of replacements......hundreds right here in Killa City.

I seriously doubt the murderer was aware of her sentiments on the ACA. Jesus Christ, what a fucking ghoul.

Oh great. Post this and some strident Trump/Bannon supporter or another Bazi type will want to shoot her.

4:09 What old psychopath with a long history of violence??? If your speaking of jungerson he is not a suspect. If you have knowledge of the murderer maybe you should call the police and tell them you know who it is

She’s a good looking gal, she won’t have any trouble finding a replacement!

Tony, first of all you show your intelligence by attacking the "window" and not the "widow."
Second, no one...absolutely NO ONE deserves to be shot and killed in this country.
Third, in your blind hate for Obamacare, I should point out that 1) my autistic adult son wouldn't have insurance without it. 2) my other sons, trying to make their way in the word despite the anchor of student loans can stay on my insurance a little longer 3) An insurance company cannot cancel a policy when you make your first claim, which has happened to friends of mine years before the evil obamacare 4)for the first time in American history, hospitals are being held accountable for performance. If they screw up an operation, they can't get paid by Medicare for the fix it operations. Hospitals are penalized for readmissions. In other words, you may hate Obamacare but there are of of good programs in their helping millions of people who had no hope of being covered before.

^^^ yes,YEEEESSS, the greatness of Obamacare. My insurance premiums quadrupled under obamacare. On the exchange the cheapest plan for me is $900/month for a bronze plan with $20k out of pocket and a 50/50 split after that. How the eff is that supposed to be remotely affordable or quality? You want reform, force the hospitals to publish their rates, a procedure is a procedure. I'll be medically destitute for the rest of my life, the garbage medical industrial complex has ruined my children's future. At this point, I guess what they sought has come true. I would rather be in a single payer system administered by the government. I'd rather hospitals be simple brick and mortar structures not these gaudy temples. I'd rather be able to get gray-market care outside of the single-payer system. F the medical-industrial complex and its supporters on both sides of the aisle.

You are absolutely wrong on your second premise. Lots of hood rats and antica protestors deserve to be shot and killed.

All they had to do was beef up Medicaid and Medicare, Obamacare has made another layer of government stupidity

I have a feeling whoever is behind this is smarter than the KCPD. Which I realize is not saying much, as most criminals are.

Most lawyers, no, all lawyers backed Obamacare. Socialist liberal cocksuckers as they really are in life.

Any loss of life to violence is tragic.

May Tommy rest in peace. May Emily, her family and their friends find God's peace in recalling memories of times shared with their departed loved one.

What in the fuck do her politics have to do with anything? Nothing. Who cares? Why are you implying it got her husband killed? God Tony, you really are a worthless piece of shit.

So was the Jungerman van really seen on Pickert's street? Or do the police just not have enough to charge him yet? If Jungerman did not do it then this is an even stranger case.

So fucking what if she is an ACA supporter? Does she do other terrible things like support Harvesters or the Humane Society? Why this is even an article I have no idea.

Like it or not the American health care system remains a hostage racket. When you are sick, you will do anything to get better, and the system knows it. You will sign onto any agreement to keep yourself alive, even if the health care system ends up taking your house and your children’s educations.

True health care reform would be the vigorous application of Department of Justice attorneys on the doctors, pharma companies, insurers, hospitals, and HMOs who are engaged in routine, systematic swindling.

I gotta think that this Jungerman guy also whacked stripper Toni Anderson and then drove her car into the river in Parkville. Logic only suggests that he is the Jack the Ripper killing everybody in KC. I call this "Tony logic."

Seriously, it sucks that TonysKansasCIty is not 100 percent reliable. this news site is much better than KC Star. but half the stuff on here is straight up bullcrap.

Work on your reliability, Tony. WE, the KC Public, need your site to be better and more legit.

She will manage. She is White. I'm certain she had a large life insurance, annuity, 401K plan, or other money vehicle to protect herself plus all the inherited money passed down. Her heart might be broken but she'll manage.
