TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CLAY CHASTAIN FILES DEFAMATION LAWSUIT AGAINST KCMO CITY MANAGER TROY SCHULTE!!!



With the case against The Star recently dismissed, here's the latest legal move from a prolific Kansas City transit activist . . .

Clay Chastain files defamation suit against City Manager Troy Schulte

Every American should have the right to defend themselves against wounding accusations.

* City Manager Troy Schulte accused me of threatening Mayor Sly James' personal safety. I did not.
* For 3-years, Schulte profiled me as dangerous by placing my name on the City's "Watch List" for individuals deemed dangerous. He had no cause or right to do that.
* Schulte ordered security to place me under armed security guard while at City Hall. He had no cause or right to do that either.
* To his great credit, Mayor Sly James told the truth and said he did not recall being threatened by Clay Chastain.
* The Kansas City Star repeated and trumpeted Schulte's false and defamatory actions against me by stating on March 25, 2019, " At one point he was put on a watch list at City Hall in response to perceived threats against Mayor Sly James." The Star then added their own lie, "he's suffered from depression." I never have.

I have previously tried to sue the City and the Star over these defamatory statements and actions but twice their high-powered attorneys have out maneuvered me in court and gotten my cases thrown out on bogus technicalities.

We will see what happens this time.

Ever since I won the 2006 light rail election, the Star and City Hall have been out to make me the pariah of the community. The Star even published a headline, " Why won't he just leave us alone?"

The more accurate question is....Why won't the Star and City Hall leave Clay Chastain and his petitions alone? Could it be because my petition to build Kansas City a state-of-the-art, zero-emission and rapid citywide transit system conflicts with both the City's ambitions to expand their obsolete streetcar system (managed by Schulte) and the ATA's failed diesel bus system?

Let us pray Mayor Quinton Lucas and the new City Council desire a tabula rasa from which to work and will make peace with Clay Chastain, fire City Manager Troy Schulte and let We the People vote on their valid "Green Transit" petition designed to vastly improve public transportation and revitalize our City.

Clay sounds like a whiny bitch.

How can you defame a persons character if they don't have any. Kinda' like Jim Denning suing Steve Rose.

Clay routinely tries to sue City officials and he has always lost due to the doctrine of official immunity. Under the doctrine of official immunity, public officers such as the City Manager are not personally liable for injuries or damages arising from their discretionary acts, functions, or omissions. He knows he has no chance of prevailing. He files this kind of crap to waste our City resources (our tax dollars). He's nothing but a hack trying to stay relevant in a town that just wants him to stay in Virginia.

So many hacks trying to stay relevant.
So little time.
The real story of KCMO "politics".
And all at public expense.
It never changes.

Clay again has fallen back on his old tricks. I too was fooled when he was starting his "campaign". And I was okay with voting for an old-school democrat. However, then he started touting his conservatism which is patently false. He then started pandering at every turn and filing frivolous lawsuits; and here we are back to square one with the old Clay Chastain back at it.

Clay, just like the court probably asked in the Star lawsuit: were you or were you not, ever placed on a watchlist?

With dumbass Shulte they'll ask: did you or did you not get placed on an arbitrary watch list? Ya did because you were probably constantly in their faces. In fact, the ONLY reason anyone even knew about the watchlist was because YOU sprayed it around at every turn. I doubt that thing was even public. Thus Shulte didn't defame you, you "defamed" yourself.

Go away Clay.

10:25, here, in Clarksburg, we just fired our city manager for failing to stop crime, drug use & homelessness.

It would be funny, if they weren't serious in believing that anyone has the power to do this.

If Clay really cared about Kansas City, he wouldn't be suing all the time. How does his suit serve anyone but himself?

Clay, you whiny, pissy, bitch. What the fuck is a "tabula rasa".

Just out of curiosity where does Clay get his money?

I, Clay, have never once submitted a comment on Tony's Blog. However I am doing so today to respond to a few comments made regarding my defamation suit against Troy Schulte. Byron Funkhouser commented, "If Clay cared about Kansas City he would not be suing all the time. How does his suit serve anyone but himself. If I can prevail with this suit it will make it possible for others to challenge City Hall without fear of retaliation. I "sue all the time" because the city interfere with my petitions all the time. And finally, if it were not for your brother's great misdeed in leading the council to over turn the stated will of 75,000 voers who voted for my light rail petition in 2006, none of these subsequent clashes with the city would ever have happened.

Personally I think its great that people sue the city when our elected officials think they can operate outside the law. The city is well represented by a legal department that takes up three floors of City Hall and has a million dollar+ budget. Keep them busy?

Clay, all you are doing now is hurting Kansas City.

You don't even FUCKING LIVE HERE!

Your 15 minutes of fame is long gone.

Go away.

12:52, besides being Clay himself, you know good and well that the citizens of Kansas City pay the bill.

11:17, and a few years ago Italy brought criminal charges against state seismologists for failure to predict the L'Aquila earthquake. The only thing Clarksburg WV and Italy have in common is punishing officials for failure to do the impossible.

We love Clay. He is one of the only individuals ever to tell the truth about the incompetence and corruption of swine like Troy.

I Hate Damn Liars said...

Herr Fuckhouser you lie again. WTF is it with you, can you not even come close to telling the truth? Besides you don't' live in Clarksburg either liar.

Byron is a liar for sure, that crap he sent to Tony 8-9 years ago was full of incorrect facts and mostly a fantasy. Like Mark said, "How do you sue an idiot? I'd come off as the bad guy who sues his mentally delusional brother."
