TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER DISCUSES COUNCIL DUDE BROOKS AND THE $15K SEXTING SCANDAL: 'HE'S A GOOD MAN, HE DID SOMETHING DUMB'



Kansas City's journey to becoming the next Detroit continues with what is tantamount to yet another pass for a disgraced public official.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS EXCERPT OF CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER DISCUSSING THE COUNCILMAN BROOKS $15K SEXTING SCANDAL!!!



Click this link to hear the discussion in its entirety. But here's the quote that I transcribed to the best of my ability that features the Congressman's comment on Council Dude Brooks:

Congressman Cleaver From A Recent Radio Interview: "I think Michael Brooks would be the first person to acknowledge that what he did was . . . Stupid. I think he would say it. And I don't think we have to worry about that happening any more. 

"I don't think he should resign until or unless it becomes an impediment to him representing the people of the 5th District. In other words, if other Council members begin to shy away from him so that they won't enter into some kind of coalition or work with him, that's a whole other issue. I would think however that if he can demonstrate his ability to continue to get things done for the people of the 5th District then I think he should remain. And I'm sure that right now it's very tough on him and tough on other Council members because some of them may be wondering, you know "if I get to close to him, is it gonna hurt me?" and that kind of thing.

"Some of us don't care. You don't abandon a friend or somebody with whom you've worked over the years because they got in some difficulty. I'd say 90% of the whole thing is something that impacts his family and the Zion Grove Missionary Baptist Church and not necessarily the community. Unless there's something we don't know about, something that comes up at a later time. I think he's a good man, he did something dumb."
#########


A few thoughts . . .

- Residents of the 5th District would be hard pressed to find anything Councilman Brooks has accomplished.

- It's not a question of the Council moving away from him . . . Because of his lackadaisical style, Council dude Brooks doesn't have a friend on the Council. 

- Also, check Ryan Kath's reporting where he does in fact offer evidence that this scandal has greater implications beyond the family and faith life of Council Dude Brooks. 

- Forgiveness is a nice thing . . . But this is a really low standard for Kansas City and the 5th District . . . Shouldn't we expect better representation than Council Dude Michael Brooks?



Meanwhile . . . The story of Kansas City's shameful sexting hot mess continues as Mayor and City Council know they'll have very little luck passing another tax as long as Council Dude Brooks remains on Council and they do NOTHING.

Not so much a pass as a duck and cover.

Be patient TKC.

And so it begins. Cleaver gives the que to the community to move past this. And like well-trained caged animals, they will all fall in line. It's disgusting. Sorry, I don't buy any of what Cleaver is saying and this just reveals his position where his friends are concern. I believe Cleaver has more than likely had this sextual discretion but it was way long ago in his younger years when this type of behavior was acceptable.

Morals are at an all time low. To God be the glory... lolz

Brooks is the absentee Council member now. He spends more time at council meetings looking at his Iphone or Ipad than listening. At least now we know what he was looking at !!!
His colleagues disregarded him even before this shameful disclosure.
Cleaver----the losers here are the African American residents of the 5th district who badly need good, not really bad representation.

Birds of a feather, perhaps.

That guy those two use as a shield to deflect criticism from their immoral actions, he said you can't serve two masters.


Cue Dylan

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be working in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody's mistress, may be somebody's heir.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

THIS MAN LIKE CLEAVER is held to a higher standard of moral conduct , what an absolute and complete embarrassment these people are, for cleaver to say he should not resign after stealing $15,000 from the tax payers and after putting himself in a position of sending obscene pictures of himself on a taxpayers expense phone. Not only is Brooks a Council Man but he is a Reverend and holds himself out as a man of God.
To take advice from a criminal like cleaver who uses his church to take tithes from his members who he awards construction contracts to and that whole car wash fiasco he has ripped off the IRS and the taxpayers on .. HE should also step down but he is black and no matter if he was running from a prison cell and was ineffective he would be voted in over and over again simply because he is black, he has no moral fiber and like brooks will continue to steal, take, lie and deceive the people because ... well... he's black no wonder KC is in the toilet ... shameful fucking animals .. we have to live with them in office because we dont have the ability to leave so we stay and live in this shit box they have made of the community

Yessiree! That Brooks is a good nigger, that just did something dumb. How often can that be said about of any of em?

Cleaver has been an opportunist his entire life hiding behind the famous "Reverend" title (car wash, Disneyland trip, etc.).
His defense of this crook is his way of saying to the KC Star "Okay, this is no longer a story.."
Now if he can just get to KSHB's Ryan Kath this whole thing can be overlooked.

Where is the FBI?

Cleaver is just another fucking idiot, just like that criminal Brooks. I mean, this is such disgraceful commentary. But what can you expect- one brother covers for another. And brother sly will cover for him too. Electorate- wake the fuck up and see how electing these types erodes all confidence in government. And please, some good candidate run against all of them.

Anonymous said...

The FBI's boss, the US attorney, who decides what charges are brought, is Tammy Dickenson, an Obama appointee. That's why the FBI will do nothing about KC corruption. The cleaver and sly folks have quite a little insulation- connect the dots.

@9:57 am your absolutely right, even the FEC Clyde McQueen was brought here from Texas by cleaver and that ghetto nigger clyde promoted shelley estelle to VP of the FEC because he and shelley shared a "love child" when she was a hourly employee there, look at mark 1 electric, they sit on the MidAmerica Board with JE Dunn and Rosie donates an office building to MidAmerica, and the list goes on and on how this town is just tied together in a neat little package of corruption

Virtually anything is acceptable when it done in the name of the Lord (and/or friendship).

Two-Headed Frankenstein said...

First of all... let's get one thing straight. Kansas City is lame.

Second, power in Kansas City is based solely on a circle of friends. There are no new friends. The friendships are generational and/or a result of nepotism. The people in power either all went to college together, had sex with the same folks, cheated on the same folks or did drugs in the same circles. So, power is no more than a drug dealers delight. It has nothing to do with education, accomplishment or ingenious discovery. Sure, there are a few but the majority of these people share a sexual partner.

Absolutely, nobody from the underground will come above ground until the old guard dies off.

When has-been groups like Freedom,Inc still exist and still maintain status in a community where they've done absolutely nothing for the people since at least 1960, then its clear that a person can live a lifetime on past wins instead of present wins.

This town is such an ass backwards social experiment.

A good man congressman would not have done this stuff in the first place.

Anonymous said...

On the list of politicians who has done this stuff and gotten away with it are some mighty big names including Presidential candidates and presidents. In the end Brooks will get a pass no matter how much Tony screams. It would be great if things were different but in a city comprised of 30 percent black voters and 70 percent of thier kids are illegitimate, this shit will be taken as a minor infraction. If you want morals you came to the wrong town folks.

We had less problems with Funkhouser dude that should obvious by now. And he wasn't trying to bankrupt KCMO with stupid pie in the sky creative class boondoggles and taxpayer ripoffs.

And we we would expect something different from one of the sleaziest scumbags in Congress because...?

Cleaver has more baggage than a passenger train. he could be the next one under the spotlight, so he certainly isn't going to pretend to be some moral leader.

Two more sleazy, corrupt black politicians.

So, help me understand why Cleaver can't mind his Washington DC business? He's not still mayor is he? He sure acts like he can't think beyond KCMO, despite the fact he has many other cities in his district. Lees Summit people, why are you voting for this fool? Has he done anything for you? Grandview? Independence? How is this guy helping you?

That's about right for KC - one crooked Rev taking up for another crooked Rev. When are people going to stop revering these idiots? When are they going to be held accountable for their actions? Oh it's KC - guess I already know the answer - NEVER. Fail.

But like Air Claire, he keeps getting voted in.

If Brooks has banged a white gal then we would have seen a reaction, instead a negroe gal admits she was having a cyber affair. Brooks stays winning.

Tony, why do you keep posting that Thieving Cleaver's crap here? This is the guy who used city credit cards to pay for a first class family vacay to Disney World and only paid the money back AFTER he got caught. He has a judgment against him for more than $1.2+ million over his default on an SBA loan...hope taxpayers like eating that one. He's funneled so much cash to friends through pet projects like 18th and Vine and the Green Impact Zone, the guy is a regular Robin Hood. He presided over one of the most corrupt councils in history.

Why in the hell would we be interested in anything this deadbeat hustler has to say about anything??!!

To put it bluntly: Congressman Cleaver is a lying hustling black preacher. Brooks is a lying hustling black preacher. At least Cleaver, as far as we know, keeps it in his pants but he doesn't think twice about stiffing the SBA on his carwash loan. The black preacher is just another version of low lifes like the pimp and the gambling hustler who infect the African-Community and hold it back. Until African-Americans rise up and throw these bums out, these parasites will continue to feed upon them and turn their neighborhoods into hoods/hell holes. Yeah, I am a racist for bringing that up. All white people are racists. Yeah I heard that bullshit before. African-Americans are worse off now than under Bush and Obama wants that. As Rahm Emanuel says: “You don’t waste a good crisis.” Obama and his party need this hate and division to stay in power. The members of the Congressional Black Caucus do not lobby for pork for their districts but for more welfare. How is this good for anyone of any color?

Cleaver is as big an ass as Brooks is. They deserve one another.

Nothing to see here, move along. said...

So the Cleave says he is sure it wont happen again, no need to step down. Not unlike taking out a million dollar loan and not paying it back. People that vote for Cleaver deserve him. Fuck em and anybody like em.

I hope Brooks didn't make a false report to the FBI. But if he did he will be resigning soon.
