TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! STOP THE LIES!!! KEEP KCI!!! SCATHING ANONYMOUS MAILER HITS MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY SPARKING NEW AIRPORT QUESTION NO. 1 CAMPAIGN OUTRAGE!!!
Right now our blog community is getting 1st word of a controversial Kansas City grassroots tactic that has local corporate campaigners on edge.
To wit . . .
THIS MORNING KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS SENT FIRST WORD: AN ANONYMOUS MAILER EVOKES RAGE AMONG THE QUESTION #1 CAMPAIGN FOR THE NEW AIRPORT BECAUSE OF ITS CONTROVERSIAL ATTACK ON KANSAS CITY CORPORATE POLITICS!!!
Here's the word . . .
"Showed up in my mailbox overnight so it wasn't sent through the post office. Really mean stuff and not very complimentary of our Mayor, City Council, The Great Chamber Of Commerce Or The Civic Council. Don't get me wrong, I'm not voting for the airport but I think these kind of personal attacks and the really sarcastic comments won't encourage more people to vote no, even if it did crack me up. That being said, the section on (Councilmember) Jolie Justus was pretty funny . . . It reads kind of like a manifesto without all the racism or religious overtones and with a few dumb jokes thrown in for good measure. Weird. I thought it would be up your alley. No fish sticks!"
In the aftermath of this news there's word of an impending ethics complaint that should make some lowly clerk in Jeff City chuckle.
We're doing our best to get our hands on the document here at TKC HQ . . . Maybe after lunch. However, in the meantime a question for our blog community regarding the #NewKCI campaign:
IS THE CORPORATE CAMPAIGN FOR THE NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT LOSING GROUND TO GRASSROOTS OPPOSITION???
After Burns & Mac was pushed out of the bidding, there's very little social media mean tweet support for #NewKCI and even Mayor Sly is on record with his frustration at a campaign that lacks local enthusiasm.
The most staunch supporters of the Question #1 campaign will only admit that the numbers are "around" 50/50 despite more than a million bucks in campaign funds that out-of-town political consultants are spending to buy votes.
You decide . . .
