Ms. Mayor Gloria Squitiro lashes out at The Star's cartoonist, services the Mayor's needs and vows to stay put!!!
Notice they're not posting Gloria Squitiro's missives on Funk's blog anymore. They've become far too embarrassing. The shoeless wonder thought she could hide from TKC but thanks to AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS, I've got a hold of this week's embarrassing statement from the Chief political adviser in the Mayor's office.
Top order of business, getting back at The Star's Lee Judge for this cartoon . . .
While we are learning to harden up to the attacks on our family, a cartoon in the Star last week took our breath away. The underlying message stated that Funk should get a divorce so that his wife would stop helping him in the Mayor’s office. What the cartoonist implied was that he would rather see the sanctity of a marriage and a family dissolve, just because he doesn’t understand what it means to pull together as a family to get a job done. This is a sad commentary on so many levels, but it does speak to why our family is in this with Funk. We believe in marriage and in family and we absolutely believe that when you make a vow, you should not only keep it, but you should work hard to bring honor, dignity and joy to it. This is important not just for the individual family, but also for the positive impact that those vows have on the greater community in which we live.What can we take from this angry quote? Obviously, endorsing nepotism and racial slurs like "Mammy" is a family value in the realm of the Funkhouser klan.
It gets worse. Here is Squitiro's vow to lurk in the Mayor's office till every bit of Mayor Funky's credibility is gone:
I’d also like to reassure you that I know that Funk will not stop until he gets to the other side. As his wife, I will continue to stand by him through it all: assisting him, tending to his needs and giving him my strength when he gets weary.EW!!!
I know it's a sad thought for the holiday season but an obstinate Mayoral administration proclaiming married love against all odds and alluding to their sex life probably isn't what (a slim majority of) people in Kansas City had in mind when they voted for the reform that Funky promised.
