TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE SANDERS LEANING CLOSER TO RUNNING FOR LT. GOVERNOR?!?



Jackson County politics is notorious for stopping the forward momentum of any political career . . . To wit, nobody would blame Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders for jumping ship.

Sanders no longer seems like the "change agent" he was just a couple of years ago. Thankfully, Mayor Funky is now out of office so The County Exec. no longer benefits from the juxtaposition with an epic FAIL. Still, Mike Sanders has some fans and it's fair to say that he might be able to scrape together some of his "good government" credentials under the right circumstances.

To wit . . .

AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS ARE TELLING US THAT JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE SANDERS IS LEANING CLOSER TO RUNNING FOR MISSOURI LT. GOVERNOR!!!

Current Lt. Gov. Kinder's war chest is huge but really signals that he's thinking about challenging Gov. Jay Nixon. A high-profile Missouri office that's open for the taking might appeal to Sanders after so much contentious Democrat infighting has taken its toll and slightly changed the perception of The County Exec. as a leader.

A classic Dem. vs. GOP fight for a State Office would give Mike Sanders a chance to rally his donkey homies across that State to his cause. Name recognition and fantastic record as a campaigner and fundraiser might push him over the top.

A great deal of this is speculation but it's also a widely accepted fact that Mike Sanders must get out of Jackson County quickly if he wants to keep his "reformer" image even partially intact.

Sanders vs. a Republican? How would Jeff Roe decide who to represent?

This is what delusional Mike Sanders does when he is getting no press. He personally creates stories like this so people are talking about him. Sly James is getting all the press and Skippy is getting none. Mike has no real plans of running because there is no way he could beat Steve Tilly who is the current Speaker of House. Sanders has no base of support, no base for financial contributions, and is as disrespected in St. Louis as he is in Kansas City. This is just a Sanders' pipe dream created by him so he can get some attention.

We will really see if he is serious about this if he finally acts like a real poltician and starts building back some of his many, many burnt bridges.

We all wish he'd get the fuck out of town and then lose the election.

Time for the A Team said...

Sanders should hire Chris Moreno now before Chris is booked. It is that important.

Sanders, you have to get your own house in order and make nice with all the people you have back stabbed here before you have my support for doing anything larger.

That is totally right. We never see Mike Sanders at KC community events, so why should we vote for him?

Anonymous said...

I think it is a great idea for him to run but he has got to go down his list of people who don't like him and go make the peace with them here at home. I know it is a long list, but that's what politics is about and how real statesmen act.

Isn't it interesting that it is 7:50 AM and the county employees are not at work yet, so there aren't all the pro-Sanders "made up" comments? Let's see what happens later in the day.

have you seen a more punchable assface? said...

Whatever that fat fuck is in favor of I am against.

Does Sanders not remember how he purposely screwed the black and hispanic community just for his own political goals this last year? You can't win statewide with that behavior. We won't forget!

He looks like a lesbian.

Sorry, I actually meant to suggest that we should all think of Aerosmith's great song, "Dude Looks Like A Lady!", but modified to be more accurate when applied to Michelle Sanders:

"Dude Looks Like A Lezzie!"

Yeah, Calvin, what's up? You shouldn't give a story to Tony so early in the day and not have your little bloggers ready to post the "Mike is great" propoganda! When you aren't ready with your minions all we get to read is the truth. Now Mike will be mad at you and won't get any loving!!

You need a foundation to build on said...

Mike has played up his appeal to urban/rural, conservatives by pissing on urban-liberal areas -- you cannot win like that as a Democrat. Even Jay Nixon had to pretend like he doesn't hate the urban areas before he ran for governor. Nixon learned that when he ran for Senate - KC and STL just did not vote for the bastard. The same would be true of Mike Sanders.

MMMMMM Good. Turn on the money machine and send it my way. I love it when Sanders runs for anything! I can build more vacation homes.

I hope like usual no one with a chance of winning runs against Mike Sanders.

Hey Charlie Wheeler! Do you want to run for LT Gov as a Republican?! Come on, it will be fun and after the primary you can get some good nap time in during the candidate debates.

Anonymous said...

Wait is someone really bashing Charlie Wheeler on the blogs as if he reads or comments on this? HAHA. What losers.

Anonymous said...

Don't think it was a bash on Charlie but it was a comment on how Sanders has never faced ANY real opposition and now he wants to run for lt. governor. Now that deserves the HAHA.

Anonymous said...

Wait a minute. Didn't Sanders just defeat the Republican Powerhouse, "Fightin' Bobby" Stringfield?

Now how can anyone say that a man who faced Snoozin' Charley and Fightin' Bobby has never faced a serious opponent?

My God, they let anyone comment on these blogs.

And as far as Time for the A Team: Moreno only works for Republicans now, so I am sure he will be working for Sanders.

9:53 Moreno doesn't work for Republicans. That's just silly. Everyone knows that.

Actually Moreno does work for Republicans.

He would get his butt kicked statewide!

Theresa Garza Ruiz would kick his ass out of the County Executive's office if the election were held today.

In a way I kinda feel sorry for Skippy.

I doubt anyone has ever taken the time to sit him down and tell him that when he talks so fast he destroys his credibility.

In addition, when he wears that wig and puts the goop all over his head so that the wig does not stay dry when his natural hair is wet from sweat, he just looks like an asshole.

No one has talked to him about this stuff. They just tell him positive things, so he never knows that people just laugh at him behind his back.

You would think his wife would tell him but I guess that is not the case.

Charles said...

If Sanders wants 35% of the vote he should definitely call Team Moreno!!!

Anonymous said...

Sanders for any office? No Damn Way!! He has used up all of his goodwill with people who once supported him. He got in because no one really ran against him. Next time will be different. All the people whom he screwed over will fight him. All of the beleaguered county employees might even BEG that bitch Shields to PLEASE come back and help them rid the county of Sanders.
Mike, you just stayed TOO long. We know what you are.

Sanders is probably just a pencil dick who desperately wants to be a girl. He ain't far off now.....

Anonymous said...

How a post about Sanders turns into attacking Moreno is mind blowing. He must be doing something right if these losers keep attacking him.

Anonymous said...

3:25 it's that lunatic Michael Fletcher's crazy brother and some failed consultants that have yet to win a race. Nothing of importance.

Anonymous said...

Are those losers at the Republican Government Consulting (RGC) Firm still attacking Moreno? Didn't they work for Terrance Nash? That says it all.

Anonymous said...

You all suck.

I dont think much of sanders as a candidate either but there is no need to call him names. The annonymous cloak serves as the only source of your power. This is why we dont have better candidates than mike sanders because no sane person wants to tolerate your malicious ignorance.

Anonymous said...

A few insane ones want to and enjoy engaging that queef of a County Exec. Just wait.

Charles said...

Just answer the question Moreno. Do you want to call me names or tell the truth?

Everytime you get on here and toot your own horn, I am going to say: "35%"

Way to go!!!

Man up and say your name.

Chris Moreno should never stoop so low as to answer a question from the low, life likes of you "Charles."

Alonzo said...

Chris Moreno beat the crap out of Michael Fletcher. He should have a street named after him. That dude is a liar.

Alonzo said...

Fletcher and his brother should sell oranges in California. They will never be of value in politics. Fletcher lied to all of us and Chris Moreno called him on it. Thankfully Moreno beat him.

Harry said...

This brother of Fletcher's always gets on here and attacks this Moreno person. Quit changing subjects to fuel a personal attack "charles". Get over it. You are crazy.

Anonymous said...

Chris Moreno did a good job in that race. Get over it Charles. The entire city is glad you and your brother have no part in it.

Marilyn said...

Seriously, how much longer will Michael Fletcher and his brother be around? They are racists and bad for this city.

I like this Moreno kid. More and more.

Kiss My Ass Talboy said...

Moreno is a God worthy of our worship. No doubt about it.

Anonymous said...

Now they want to attack Moreno and Talboy. It sounds like some consultants are Anti-Latino.

I smell smoke said...

Talboy fired Moreno after Nixon fired Moreno and before Chris Benjamin fired Moreno based on what I hear.

Mike said...

10:28 all of what you posted about Chris Moreno is simply not true. Moreno has never been fired and posting anonymous attacks for no real purpose doesn't help Democrats. You obviously aren't in the know.

Anonymous said...

More of the same old busted false attacks on Chris Moreno by the same old busted losers who pretend to be consultants and Democrats.

The only Mike Fletcher and Charles Menifee have done that was positive for the black community was leave it. They should do that again!

Mike Fletcher does drugs and beats his wife.

Charles Menifee said...

I'm good enough. I'm smart enough and gosh dangit one of these days people will like me more than Chris Moreno.
