TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY RECALL PETITIONERS AGAINST MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS RALLY SUBURBAN OPPOSITION!!!
As the coronavirus pandemic worsens and the ensuing economic recession grows more dire, local opposition against Mayor Quinton Lucas seems to be meeting with a surprising level of support.
Moreover, here are two things we've noticed . . .
MSM HAS MOSTLY SILENCED THE RECALL AGAINST MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS!!!
Right-wing radio has offered some publicity but so far there hasn't been a worthwhile TV report -- Which is where most of KC gets its news.
Finally . . .
RECALL SIGNATURE GATHERING IS FOCUSED ON THE NORTHLAND AND MOSTLY WHITE SUBURBS!!!
This strategy is twofold . . . Political neophytes and the clueless shouldn't ignore all of the signs of a GOP-backed effort with Missouri Republican operatives sharing right-wing memes and talking points in the rapidly growing social media group. Voters against Mayor Lucas are likely pro-Trump supporters as well. There is clearly an element of recruitment and donor listing at play.
And then . . .
We'll give them time on this but the absence of an urban, Midtown or even Plaza locations will likely prove problematic from a PR & legal standpoint according to insiders. Sure, any KCMO resident can sign onto a recall petition but a signature gathering process focused totally on suburban mostly white districts has the potential to be thrown out on the grounds of disenfranchisement according to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Stranger things have happened and let's not pretend that a successful signature gathering process won't end up in court one way or another.
Nevertheless, it is a FACT that the recall petitioners continue to move forward at an impressive pace whilst the Mayor & local media are doing their best to ignore the clear signs of frustration with his coronavirus leadership.
Here's the group's Sunday agenda . . .
