TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDERS PREDICT STEVE ROSE STAYS WINNING AGAINST GOP LAWSUIT NOW THREATENING 1ST AMENDMENT FREE SPEECH!!!
Kansas City newsman and columnist Steve Rose would hate the .jpeg above because he's a Republican and actually didn't agree with Prez Obama or this iconic image which we parody because of its American flag colors that are relevant for July 4th 2019.
But more important than image, right now we bring EXCLUSIVE insight into an important legal fight that impacts all of KCMO.
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS AGREE: STEVE ROSE STAYS WINNING OVER KANSAS GOP STATE SENATOR JIM DENNING GIVEN THIS WEEK'S RULING!!!
Don't forget that a Johnson County judge on Tuesday dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought by Kansas Sen. Majority Leader Jim Denning against The Kansas City Star.
And so here's the EXCLUSIVE word from one of the top ranking KC metro insiders who has more than a bit of insight on this case and offers an important perspective based on recent evidenc.
"Inasmuch as Rose’s arguments in the Denning vs Rose lawsuit are virtually identical to those of The Kansas City Star – that the burden of proof is solely on Denning to show malice – it is virtually certain the outcome will be identical."
"Denning then would lose and pay Rose’s $40,000 in legal fees with more bad headlines for him. With re-election efforts right around the corner, legal experts would not be surprised if Denning withdrew his lawsuit, both to save time and energy in a fruitless battle, and to save the punitive legal fees. We will know the outcome later this month, when Denning and Rose are scheduled to face off."
And so, Republican infighting hasn't worked well for either side but this July 4th our blog community finds a bright side amid all of this drama and realizes that the challenges confronted by Mr. Rose actually help to secure 1st Amendment rights for all of the denizens of the Kansas City metro discourse.
