TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! DOUBLE TROUBLE: KANSAS CITY POLITICOS SCRAMBLE TO FIND MORE BIG MONEY PATRONS AFTER DEMISE OF JAMES B. NUTTER AND NEAL PATTERSON!!!
Kansas City elected officials are mourning the loss of two of their biggest patrons this week.
While it would be callous, cruel and unkind to doubt the sincerity of political mourners . . . It's also a fact that James B. Nutter & Neal Patterson made a great many friends not only by way of their achievement but also because of their political alliances.
Point of fact . . . Neal Patterson didn't get to be an "Obamacare Billionaire" by rejecting the affections of top Democratic Party leaders . . .
We've already talked about Mr. Peanut and now must only note that they might as well bury the careers of Exec Frank White and Legislator Crystal Williams with him . . .
But this post isn't about these two rich dudes who hopefully found a way to take that money with them.
THE REAL STORY IS THAT MANY KANSAS CITY POLITICOS ARE NOW IN PANIC MODE AFTER LOSING TWO OF THEIR BIGGEST PATRONS!!!
The good news first . . .
Cerner and their top ranking execs are going to keep funneling cash to Kansas City politicos given their South KC Campus ambitions.
However, there's no replacing Mr. Peanut and his preoccupation with Jackson County. Insiders know that Mr. Peanut's heirs have long noted their aversion to the petty world of Kansas City elections and slap-fighting. The people most dependent on cash from Mr. Nutter are now some of the most desperate politicos in town and they could easily face challenges from upstart politicos according to KCMO insiders.
Meanwhile Mayor Sly cries crocodile tears for these two rich dudes whilst he hasn't really said much about the Kansas City homicide rate lately . . .
And so, many sympathies, condolences and tributes are not only powered by grief but also the desperate search for more donations as Kansas City election season approaches.
