KANSAS CITY #TBT!!! WHERE ARE THEY NOW??? FORMER KANSAS CITY CONSERVATIVE TALKER CHRIS STIGALL COPES WITH DUI ARREST HOT MESS!!!
Tonight we think back to the beginning of an American Conservative uprising which begat the rise of Prez Trump and one of the Kansas City architects of the movement.
Remember Chris Stigall???
He was a fiery, local talk show host back before people tuned out and just decided to troll the Internets all day long.
In fact, he was the key-note speaker to a crowd of thousands in Kansas City which was probably the highlight of his life. The old-school tea party activists cheered enthusiastically for this rising media star. Upon that momentum he earned a job in Philly and seemed to be on his way to becoming the next Rush Limbaugh.
And now . . .
Philly Mag: Chris Stigall Apologizes for DUI Arrest
"According to court records, Stigall’s blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest was between 0.10 and 0.16, while a police blotter report originally pegged the number at .167. The legal BAC limit in Pennsylvania is .08. Stigall, who was charged with traveling at 85mph in a 55mph zone, pleaded guilty to driving at 75mph. As part of the plea deal, Stigall’s drivers license was suspended. He also agreed to perform community service. Court records indicate that he has paid more than $1,500 in fines and court costs."
Chris Stigall: “There’s been talk online about my receiving a DUI last year and I’d like to take the opportunity to confirm that it did in fact happen. I made the terrible and far too common mistake of driving when I shouldn’t have been and am incredibly thankful and fortunate no one was hurt in the process. I am near completion of a diversion program for first-time offenders. During this time, I have sincerely internalized the severity of impaired driving and how it affects lives in the most tragic of ways. I apologize to anyone in the community I have disappointed. As always, I continue to commend local law enforcement who do the hard work to keep our streets safe. To my listeners, my colleagues, my friends, and our valued partners – you have my sincere guarantee you can confidently expect better from me in the future and I will demand better of myself.”
And so, we learn that even b-last media celebrity isn't easy and the trajectory of Kansas City Stars is often fraught with peril.
Nevertheless, we wish the best to this one time Kansas City power player as he confronts that aftermath of a hot mess that kinda contradicts so much of his reactionary rhetoric about personal responsibility and adherence to the law.
