TKC FIRST!!! RECALL MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS SOCIAL MEDIA GROUP CONFRONTS TOUGH KANSAS CITY REQUIREMENTS!!!



Recently, a local group has been gaining traction online and pushing an effort to recall Mayor Quinton Lucas over disagreements with this coronavirus crackdown strategies.

From what we seen . . .

THE GROUP SEEMS UNFAMILIAR WITH THE ARDUOUS PROCESS FOR KCMO RECALL!!!

As always, we're here to help.

First, here's the muni-code that they'll need to understand in order to start the process . . .

Sec. 720.5. - Grounds for recall.

"Grounds for recall must relate to and affect the administration of the officials office, and be of a substantial nature directly affecting the rights and interests of the public. Grounds for recall are limited to objective reasons which reasonable people, regardless of their political persuasion, could agree would render any officials performance ineffective, which must be an act of misfeasance, the improper performance of some act which may lawfully be done, or malfeasance, the commission of some act wholly beyond the officials authority, or nonfeasance, the failure to perform a required duty. The Council shall not fail to place the matter before the voters based on the inadequacy of the grounds stated by the committee of petitioners."

(Ord. No. 051253, § 4, 5-18-06, eff. 9-1-06)

Now . . .

This is tricky because . . .

Petitioners must sign on to a legal document claiming the mayor has performed an act of malfeasance, misfeasance or nonfeasance . . . In turn, this claim opens up sponsors of the petition to a very real threat of legal push back.

In the last major effort to oust a politico from office, former recall petitioners against Mayor Mark Funkhouser were prepared to take on this risk . . . Mostly because the nincompoop politico was far less popular than current Mayor Lucas. Also, former politically inept Mayor Funky and his domineering wife didn't have as many lawyer friends as Mayor Q.

Let's also not forget that cowtown politics at this shady level is fraught with peril and scams . . . According to Midtown coffee shop legend, a long dead political consultant lifted about $10K from the group anti-Funkhouser petitioners as he pretended to "bundle" money for their cause and then pocketed the proceeds which he billed as a "fee" for his promotional services. We share this example not only as tribute to a formerly glorious grifter who is now pushing up daisies but also to warn local rubes of how easy it is to separate fools from their money in Kansas City politics.

Now, let's look at the numbers game . . .

Sec. 721. - Filing recall petition.

"A petition demanding the removal of any officer elected by the vote of the people shall be known as a recall petition. A recall petition, to be effective, must be filed with the City Clerk, or with the election authorities, within thirty (30) days after the filing of the affidavit as provided in the next preceding section, and to be sufficient, must bear the signatures of registered voters of the City or district from which such officer was elected equal in number to at least twenty per cent (20%) of the total vote cast therein for candidates for the office of Mayor at the last preceding regular municipal election. A recall petition, if insufficient as originally filed, may be supplemented as provided in this article. The committee of petitioners hereinafter described shall have the right, at their option, to file a recall petition either with the City Clerk or with the election authorities of the City, and the City Clerk or the election authorities, as the case may be, with equal force and effect, shall have the power to certify as to the sufficiency of such recall petition."

First here's a look at some math on the requirements for recall:

According to KMBC, Mayor Quinton Lucas won election by 59% with 39,216 votes. Former council lady Jolie Justus garnered 27,747 votes or 41% of the turnout

A rough calculation estimates that petitioners will need around 13,393 VALID KCMO VOTER SIGNATURES in order to start the process.

This is actually good news for petitioners given that the low turnout election which put Mayor Q in office produced a significantly easier threshold for removal than required by the previous effort. Supporters of the campaign against Mayor Funky needed to obtain 16,950 valid signatures of registered voters in order to get the issue on the August 2009 ballot. They were only able to gather 16,821 signatures. A mere 129 signatures kept Mayor Funky in office and I'm sure about half of that total was lost in the backseat of TKC's old Toyota when I overslept and forgot to send the petition sheets I had collected. My bad.

Anyhoo . . .

Now, we're not saying that a recall isn't possible . . . The social media political push back against Mayor Q is real and increasing daily . . . However, at this point, the recall effort seems far fetched and mostly looks like a gambit to garner social media attention rather than make a valid, real, political power play.

On what horizon do they see a conservative replacement? This shitty will not elect someone with the backbone to say no to libs and developers. Wasted effort.

I think in may circles and especially out north, Quinton Lucas is a lot less popular than Funkhouser ever was.

KC Voter said...

Q is a one termer whether he is recalled or not.

Anonymous said...

Wow!
39K votes out of a population of almost half a million people.
Apathy rules KCMO and the results are there for all to see.
High crime, horrendous homicide rate, terrible streets, high water bills, upside-down priorities, silliness like millions for bike lanes, endless "development" subsidies, financial mismanagement, insider dealing, and outright corruption.
Poor choices create terrible outcomes.
And have for decades.
Lucas and the council haven't even begun to address the actual issues of the city while they play at the BLM riots and Covid 19 declarations.
Tomorrow is not likely to be any brighter.

If the petitioners are White, they won’t have any problem getting the requisite signatures. Black voters can’t read, don’t know whether they’re actually registered to vote, registered in their mamma’s name, etc. #RecallReed

Bandit said...

If Q Ball isn't recalled he will have the three longest years of his life Either way, it will take area businesses over a decade to recover from his ineptness. Watch for legalized theft (taxes and fees not looting) to increase, more residents and businesses to vacate to friendlier climates and screams of "RACISM!" to increase when that all transpires. The man is tone deaf and a racebaiting fool. The city will pay for a long time because of it.

Doubt me? Even the liberal wingnuts in the Land of Fruits and Nuts that got the utopia that they wanted have now figured out that it wasn't what they wanted. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8631063/Hollywood-Apocalypse-rich-famous-fleeing-droves.html

This after only a year in office. Come to think of it - he turned out to be an ‘educated’ Jermaine Reed (versus the stupid Jermaine Reed we know today). This is why children shouldn’t be Mayor.

Recall Lucas over the COVID? That's only one thing. How about recall over dipping into the GO Bond money that the residents have never seen at work. How about using tax dollars for painting BLM on the streets where there is mostly white people with some pretty expensive houses. Seems pretty racist and deceitful doesn't it?

They would be better to focus on cutting the Mayor and City Council's salaries by 75% and maybe eliminating pensions for elected officials.

Recall him over:

*Creating ridiculous business regulations resulting from his own paranoia
*Creating massive unemployment directly through his own actions
*Promoting and endorsing property loss and destruction directly through is own actions
*Lowering property values directly through his actions
*Making the general climate of Kansas City unfriendly to businesses and taxpayers
*For having a racist attitude in general in part creating all of the above

Sweden has served as a control group to compare policies intended to decrease deaths from covid-19. Sweden has been unfairly criticized for its policy despite having an outcome more favorable than places with authoritarian lockdown policies (CA, NY, etc.). Sweden did not close its schools. Other than stopping gatherings of more than fifty people, the Swedish government left decisions of closing businesses, using masks, and social distancing to the Swedish people. The government encouraged the use of masks and social distancing, but there were no requirements and there were no penalties for those who declined to follow the advice. Mortality attributed to covid-19 hit a peak value of 11.38 deaths per day per million population on April 8, 2020. This mortality was matched on April 15, and mortality has decreased since then. Daily mortality has been less than one death per day per million population for the previous eighteen days. Cases are very low. For all practical purposes, the covid-19 epidemic is over in Sweden. Almost certainly herd immunity has been achieved in Sweden irrespective of any antibody test results. Testing is usually only for IgG antibody and the herd can become immune via IgA antibody or cellular mechanisms that are not detected by the usual testing. Whether covid-19 will reappear this next fall or winter remains to be seen.

The data suggest that lockdowns have not prevented any deaths from covid-19. At best, lockdowns have deferred death for a short time, but they cannot possibly be continued for the long term. It seems likely that one will not have to even compare economic deprivation with loss of life, as the final death toll following authoritarian lockdowns will most likely exceed the deaths from letting people choose how to manage their own risk. After taking the unprecedented economic depression into account, history will likely judge these lockdowns to be the greatest policy error of this generation. Covid-19 is not going to be defeated; we will have to learn how to coexist with it. The only way we can learn how best to cope with covid-19 is to let individuals manage their own risk, observe the outcomes, and learn from mistakes. The world owes a great debt to Sweden for setting an example that the rest of us can follow.

@12:47 the same reason you support a President who cheated on his first wife with his second. Cheated on his second wife with his third. Cheated on his third with a porn stars and paid hush money to shut them up. Said it was OK to grab women by the pussy, and told an accused pedophile he wished her well.

Anonymous said...

When that accused pedophile has enough info to bring down any number of prominent Democrats you fervently wish her well. You don’t want her to strangle herself with her own bedsheet or commit suicide by shooting herself a couple of times in the back of the head. That would be terribly disappointing.

NOTE TO LIBTARD DEMS: People are tired of being shut down, intentionally put out of work and followed around by your Karen Gestapo and told to do stupid shit that is pointless. There is a backlash from hell coming and you people have no idea what you've started. Please continue the heavy handed shit and the whining.

That will make the show that much more entertaining!
