TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY PETITIONERS OFFICIALLY LAUNCH RECALL AGAINST MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS!!!
A rapidly growing social media group is carefully sprinkled with a small clique of Missouri Republican political operatives and they're gaining traction in an effort to oust Mayor Quinton Lucas.
We're familiar with a few of these locals and their presence hints at something a little more organized than a simple "grassroots" effort. To be fair, the majority of the group's rhetoric touts opposition to KCMO mask orders and coronavirus restrictions.
And so . . .
THE RECALL AGAINST KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS IS OFFICIAL!!! ACTIVISTS PROMISE TO START COLLECTING SIGNATURES ON FRIDAY!!!
Now, organizers keep bragging about their social media numbers BUT a quick look at the group reveals that most of their members are from out of town.
Still . . . We don't want to show any hate to this effort that's also encouraging voters to register before the deadline.
Their effort has already surprised us and moved more quickly to start their petition than we imagined. Still, we notice that most other local media is taking their time talking about this effort. So far they've only been able to garner a five minute quickie interview with conservative talker Pete Mundo.
Anyhoo . . .
They now have 30 days to get at least 13K+ VALID signatures from KCMO voters to put their initiative on the ballot in 2021.
