TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY COUNCILMAN JERMAINE REED CONFRONTS ETHICS QUESTIONS OVER $30K FUND TRANSFER TO MAYORAL CAMPAIGN!!!



Here's a bit of bookkeeping from our blog community that deserves attention given the dearth of political accountability in Kansas City.

Checkit . . .

SPECIAL THANKS TO KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS FOR KEEPING TRACK OF COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED'S MAYORAL CAMPAIGN AND A CURIOUSLY BIG COMMITTEE FUND SWITCHEROO RECENTLY REPORTED TO THE MISSOURI ETHICS WEBSITE!!!

And so, here's the word on the questions being posed to Councilman Reed:

"The very first donation to his mayoral campaign committee is around $30K from his last committee. The new campaign finance laws say no committee to committee contributions, and this is way over the KC municipal limits.

"At best, it is some very, very sloppy work. But it may be far more. Definitely worth a look."

And so we provide this look to our blog community regarding this questionable funding of the Council Dude's ambitions . . . Here's the contribution listing:



Even better, here's a relevant passage from the Missouri Ethics website regarding candidate committee contributions . . .

Can a candidate committee give a contribution to or receive a contribution from another candidate committee?

No. Under Article VIII, Section 23.3(4) a candidate committee cannot accept contributions from or make contributions to another candidate committee including a candidate committee or equivalent entity established under federal law. This prohibition does not apply to a candidate’s personal funds.

Now, the AWESOME TKC TIPSTER is correct in posing questions . . . This could just be typically sloppy work from the Council Dude AND there's always a chance for the politico to amend his report and account for any errors.

In the meantime, this brief insight into KCMO campaign finance rules & regs reminds us that the contest for Mayor is already underway.

Jermaine's candidacy should be taken seriously. As the field gets more crowded he could win more support. Already he has more money than Scott Wagner.

Oh, we take his candidacy seriously, but Kansas City has already had TWO African-American Mayors with inflated egos and no skills.

Not sure we need a third one at this point, we may need leadership instead.

It is entirely unfair I that sitting City council members are bound by the ethics rules. These people give their hearts and souls to us and this is what we give them in return? Ethics rules are for the Interlopers that dare to upset the fragile balance between aristocrat and proletariat.

There's ethics in Jackson County? Blahahaha

Yeah what Lord Gray Back said. I love a comedy KC politics and the mere thought of ethics. ROTFAGLMMFAO = roll on the floor and gut laugh my mutha fukin ass off.

Twowonoh: Indian Spirit Guide not allowed to offer help to KC buck dancin, grifter, minstrel, con artist, crook, dishonest and lying political system. Progressives, Democrats, liberals, homosexuals, anarchists and sub gum Afro culture want nothing to do with the Great White Spirit.

Every state has different campaign regulation laws. In Kansas, it's OK, as long as one is "upwardly mobile", eg running for a higher office. But this is Missouri, so those more restrictive rules apply.

He could return the funds to donors, and ask them to send a NEW check to his campaign, but of course, that's risky, because then the donors are asked to bet on a new horse race.

This is gonna be a very long race.

And Shields (who really has the skill set to actually GOVERN) has not even declared...

^^^Shields is an long long time polly. She can strategize better than names thrown out so far. She could pull in a lot of markers. She has deep roots and connections in the KC political fabric.


Thomas might just of given us a glimpse of real future of KC politics.

Tracy Thomas said...

Thanks, 9:19.

I assume when you say "polly", you mean politico.
Certainly not a pollyanna--Shields is nothing of the sort.
She's a realist.
And--unlike the current horsies in the race, she keeps her ego out of it.
She talks to her colleagues behind the scenes, and crafts coalitions and majorities, never needing to take CREDIT, or wear a big red hat!

She very wisely sat back and let the Burns and Mac fiasco/contract grab play out.
Sometimes doing "nothing" or just standing still is the smartest play.
It was certainly true in this case.
Those who got in bed with Burns&Mac are forever tarnished as giveaway agents of taxpayer dollars.
Jolie Justus--burned.
Sly James? The homeless mayor who rents on Union Hill? Lame duck. No trip to WDC for Sly. He sold out the taxpayers. Now he's clowning around (in his clown suit, as Tony pointed out) trying to horn in on the Las Vegas tragedy news cycle--as if ANYone cares what he thinks! He can't keep Kansas Citians safe. His leadership ended the day he jumped into the bushes at the Cheesecake Factory on the Plaza.

9:41---She's also mysteriously alluring and exudes raw sensuality.

We don't need another black mayor, and would not survive one. We don't need a woman pussy eating mayor. We don't need a woman mayor at all, whether she eats pussy or likes dick. And last but not least, we don't need a faggot mayor.

Tracy Thomas, I have a question for you.
Was your transgender surgery painful?

KC JD said...

^^^ Stupid. Gray back. You seem pissed because her comments are much more intelligent than yours. You come up with some funny shit sometimes but Tracy is obviously a very informed person and on the campaign finance issue, you can tell that she has actually worked with candidates.

KC JD....suck much political hack dick much? Glad I could be of help.

Thomas seems in the know but doesn't know polly means entrenched political actor.

Gray Back said...

KC JD, you're correct. So she worked with candidates, huh? Did any of the cum on her face?

Tracy, seriously, go back to therapy.

But if KC votes are stupid enough to elect Shields or her puppet Lucas, then they will deserve the government they get.

Anonymous said...

I like Shields. She will be a thousand times better than the acid douches we have had for mayor for the last 20 years.

She is very astute and can easily think circles around all the buck dancers, minstrels, grifters and shines.

It is time for progress and efficiency Shields for a Better Future.

We Deserve Katherine KC Deserves Real Leadership.

Vote Shields a good lady with a lifetime of public service.

Hell I could easily get her elected. She is truly the most viable of all the driftwood bleating they want to be Mayor.


Just the facts please said...

Hey you douchebags, sometimes Tracy isn't always spot on but for the most part, she is generally correct in her opinions and her ideas for critical thought.

Why do you assholes have to be rude and condescending to Tracy and say Superdave and Chuck. I guess being an asshole in life is easier than using your mind and amounting to something.

Anonymous said...

Just a Fuck....Hey Ho git off Chuck. He only brain in here and only one trying to get the truth out.

Tracy wants to be the next Steve Glorioso when it comes to being a political mover and shaker. Maybe that's not such a bad thing.

Hope Tracy does not have a hair lip and slithery nature.

He isn't broke. just morally bankrupt.

Nobody should take this assclown serious. If you are even thinking of voting for him for Mayor, just ask his constituency about him. Recall Reed mean anything? He had a recall launched to remove him from office. What else do you need to know?

Anonymous said...

Oh wait...i remember him..he is Jiggo Da Clown. Yeah he famous line "Jiggo don't play dat.

He helped whitey condemn peoples houses so whitey could build government building. Lot of community folks got a bad deal but it didn't stop Jiggo from gettin the lobbyist money to sell he constituents out.


Well with that credential he might make a good Mayor after all. We got a shady clown Mayor now why not keep a good thing going.

agentzero said...

Just give us a smart candidate of integrity who isn't in corporate orbit as front person setting fixes, Shields sounds as if she can manouvre past the usual suspects' machine

Kcpl back in monopoly expansion posture, this time they probably really spread the money around
