TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL TEXTS: DAN FOWLER CHECK ON QUINTON LUCAS DUI CASE STARTS KANSAS CITY MAYOR'S RACE MUDSLINGING SILLY SEASON!!!



An otherwise nice guy from the Northland confronts a wave of criticism from his colleagues thanks to texts that depict him snooping around about a case involving a confrère that's really none of his business.

Here's the exchange that has started a ruckus among the denizens of the 26th floor.

CIRCULATING AMONG COUNCIL: "Texts from and to Dan Fowler on 02/18/2019"

"I’m trying to find out what the BAC was for Quinton Lucas. He was arrested in Lawrence on 10-18-18 for DUI. He is a city councilman and mayoral candidate for KCMO. Do you know anybody in Lawrence who can find out?"
###########

"Who is this?"

#############

"Scott, it’s Dan Fowler."

##########

"Dan:

Thanks for your text. Quinton is represented by Tim Riling in Lawrence, 785.###.####. I represented Quinton earlier in the case and cannot discuss it with you. I’m sure you understand.

Hope all is well.

Scott"
###########

"Fowler just called lawyer asking to keep his request confidential."

###################

Obviously, because this one fell into the filthy hands of TKC -- That request was too little and too late given that texts from the exchange have circulated among the entire council and senior City Hall staff.

The aftermath . . .

MOST OF THE COUNCIL IS PEEVED AT "NICE GUY" DAN FOWLER FOR TEXTS SHOWING HIM PLAYING PRIVATE DICK!!!

Even worse . . .

RUMOR HAS IT COUNCIL DUDE QUINTON IS LIVID AND WANTED TO TELL DAN FOWLER: 'IF HE HAS ANY QUESTIONS, JUST ASK HIM DIRECTLY' IN THEIR NEXT MEETUP!!!

We expect that tempers will cool by tomorrow and the expected snow avalanche might help in that regard. Brief aside, we've also reached out to Councilman Dan Fowler for his comment on this report but haven't heard back yet. We'll be happy to update this post or post a new story if he gets back to us via Twitter or e-mail.

Meanwhile, Council Dude Fowler seems to be a member of team Jolie, expressing support and social media love for her airport efforts -- Sadly, this sloppy bit of investigation also has a bit of blow back for her campaign which suffers rebuke from the council given the perception that her supporters are getting nasty and now resort to mud slinging.

Don't know why Fowler would want to associate with Jolie. She is not going to get any votes in the Northland. Dan should focus on winning his own race.

Jeez, this is a great excuse to vote against ANY incumbent. Can't believe that they all have time for this but have been silent about the snow and ice that's still on the streets while we're getting another dose tonight.

That’s perfect strategy, bring this up every month until election time and then everyday for a week before the and Lucas is sure to lose! This helps Fowler. Concerned citizens don’t want another lyin cheatin drunk in office like sLIE.

^^^^ You must be from Virginia because you don't know the northland at all. This kind of double dealing never goes over, it just pisses everybody off. I'm not a quinton supporter but I think this hurts fowler more than anybody.

Can we just go four years without a mayor, y'know just to try it out? It might end up going all right

For a current mayoral candidate, having a recent DUI conviction is absolutely relevant to all voters. For me it is disqualifying.

Anonymous said...

Agreed. We have enough problems with the credibility of City Hall.

Since it's pretty clear that TKC has been on the Team Quinton bandwagon for sometime, I'm not sure why he would post this as it hurts Quinton a lot more than Fowler.

I’ve lived in God’s country all my life and people will vote for Fowler over Lucas drunk ass all day long

Jolie was clearly drunk with Slie at the River Club when she agreed to that corrupt KCI deal. On second thought, she wasn’t drunk, she’s just STUPID!!

She ain’t stupid, she’s just CORRUPT.

Great start to our Saturday with @DanFowlerKCMO at Donuts with Dan in the mighty 2nd District! Lots of great updates — Public Works, Planning, Housing/Codes, KCI, Bike KC Plan. Thank you Councilman Fowler!

For the 2015-2019 council term, Mayor Sly James has appointed Fowler to serve as Chairman of the Ethics and Legal Review Committee, (LOL)

Vice Chair of the Housing Committee and Vice Chair of the Airport Committee. He is also a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. KCMO .gov

Chairman of the Ethics and Legal Review Committee


Okay so snooping around and trying to dig up dirt on an opponent I guess is cool and acceptable according to KCMO government ethics standards.

^^^ yup, because Lucas is too chicken shit to tell us

I think the public has the right to know since Lucas is a public elected official.

Matlock said...

What accounts for as little of 13%, but also for near half?

When you have no significant accomplishments in the last four years, and no real ideas for moving the city forward, and you're running for re-election, about all you can do is to trash the other guy.
And there's certainly plenty to trash the incumbents about.
Minor league bush league politics.
So, so KCMO.

Anytime someone running for office has a criminal record or something like a DUI which is criminal, that makes it our business. If Quinton doesn't like it he shouldn't have done it, but actually both of these guys are creepy geeks.

This is Jolie's Watergate. She has focused on The Q for the past two years. She spent a lot of money from her Senate treasury spying on him.

Ha! But she has a mole on her payroll.

Jolie got caught being so dirty. That's a damn shame. Who operates like this? she's not as "progressive" as she might seem.

Thank you T, I think it's about time that KC learns Jolie and her supporters aren't as smart as they think they are. This was just silly. They took something that should have been a win for them and they turned it into something that embarrasses them. They should have just made a commercial with the DUI arrest. End of story.

Anonymous said...

Jolie is using the Washington based consulting firm that Sly used. They have to charge 12 times before they produce anything like a commercial. Then the content sucks. Remember "Transformational Medicine?"

Why does Jolie's "wife" have a mustache?

Just wait until the public discovers there's no deal with the airlines!

Thanks to the mole she has no real campaign. It really is perfect. Too late now to make up for lost time. You lose Jolie.

There may be more than the mayoral race involved. If the current butt-pimple airport deal is to move forward, some crucial funding votes will have to come out of city hall very soon. Lucas, on the critical aviation committee, has been skeptical of the current airport deal for the last two years and is openly aligned with Councilpersons Loar and Hall, all of whom are outspoken about the way the airport is going. Is this an attempt to get leverage against Lucas to vote in favor of using taxpayer's money to keep this ass-wipe deal alive? Remember, there are literally billions of dollars at stake. You don't think the pols wouldn't ice pick their own kids to get a piece of that? At the very least, this may be the opening salvo to knock off Lucas as a mayor who could be trouble for the airport gang.

Do people remember that a billion dollars is 1000 million ?

You're talking like it's 2016 when Jolie mattered to anybody.
