TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY URBAN CORE FAITH LEADERS HIT WITH ETHICS COMPLAINT OVER MLK BLVD CAMPAIGN!!!
Our blog community teased and gossiped about this last week but here's the REAL NEWS report and JOURNALISM documentation from a community newspaper:
NORTHEAST NEWS: A complaint has been filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission against the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Dr. Vernon Howard, and the KC 4 DR. MLK JR BLVD National Coalition.
The complaint, filed by one of the original Save The Paseo petitioners, alleges that no “paid-for-by” disclosure statement exists on campaign flyers and yard signs being distributed by the group.
A campaign flyer secured by The Northeast News does not show the required disclaimer on either side of the campaign piece.
According to Missouri election law, “any pamphlets circular, handbill, sample ballot, advertisement, sign, or other imprinted or lettered material that is relative to candidates or ballot measures must contain the proper ‘paid for by’ disclaimer.”
Again, read their story for the FULL REPORT WITH PIX as tensions mount in this campaign and the issue further divides residents along another local road.
