TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED CONFRONTS ETHICS QUESTIONS OVER NEW AIRPORT PROMO FUNDED BY THE HEAVIES DESPITE KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICT QUESTION 1 SKEPTICISM!!!
Councilman Jermaine Reed believes he can be the next Mayor of Kansas City with the help of a diverse coalition of supporters and their unifying rage against Prez Trump. Meanwhile, most local political denizens think that he's just trying to line up a job after he's termed out.
Whatever the case, the latest Internets blast from the 3rd District representative is drawing criticism . . .
COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED SERVING AS SPOKESMODEL FOR A SKETCHY BIT OF QUESTION #1 PROPAGANDA HAS CONSTITUENTS CONCERNED!!!
Take a look:
The advert is funded by "America Forward" - A low rent PAC run out of a Midtown shanty. The only contribution to the organization in the latest campaign finance reporting period is $3K from The Heavy Constructions Association Of Greater Kansas City.
Documentation . . .
Legal political money laundering questions aside . . .
In addition to the fact that voter turnout projections for the upcoming election in the 3rd, 5th & 6th Districts are pathetic. There has been quite a bit of skepticism about the REALITY OF NEW AIRPORT JOB CREATION FOR THE URBAN CORE VS. MORE EMPTY PROMISES FROM CAMPAIGNERS. Translation: City Hall almost never lives up to MBE/WBE hiring requirements and the numbers are usually FAKED with payoffs going to a few politically connected shell companies but very few jobs employing skilled laborers.
Faking MBE/WBE participation is a Kansas City construction fact of life and only consultant dweebs who have never been to a building site or bother to do their own lawn work claim otherwise.
Still, the effort to buy votes by way of cash heavy electioneering continues as the real battle over KC's New Airport Question #1 is working to effectively fund and inspire greed through low-rent local chieftains who are desperate to find support.
