TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! SUPPORTERS OF KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS TARGET RECALL PETITIONERS WITH CAMPAIGN FINANCE THREATS!!!
Supporters of a recall against Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas tragically discover that social media "support" doesn't always equal real world success.
To wit . . .
PUSH BACK AGAINST RECALL PETITIONERS RAMPS UP AND NOW INSIDERS ADVANCE CAMPAIGN FINANCE VIOLATION THREATS!!!
Once again, a KICK-ASS TKC INSIDER shares deets on one allegation out of many that will confront this so-called local grassroots movement.
"The consultants are arguing that the recall "movement" is actually a PAC according to Missouri law (RSMo. 130.011.7) and are likely in violation of several campaign finance laws. Their GoFundMe has plenty of anonymous donations, and their website doesn't have any of the required language, so it seems they aren't collecting or disclosing the required information.
"I hope these new guys realize that campaign finance laws are no joke and they can face fines up to the amount collected and spent, or could get a misdemeanor (RSMo 130.081) which could carry a fine of $2,000 or up to a year in jail (RSMo 558.011). They just need to be a lot more careful!
"For a guy who just moved to KC from Overland Park in April (Brad) and a guy who lives in Independence (Kyle), they are certainly getting a baptism by fire in KCMO politics! Hopefully they can stand the heat without getting themselves in too much trouble."
There's a lot more to this story but here's another tease . . .
TOP KANSAS CITY POLITICAL CONSULTANTS ARE NOW GETTING INVOLVED AND WE CAN EXPECT EVEN MORE SCATHING LOCAL MEDIA REPORTS IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE!!!
Again, to be fair, the Recall KC group is enthusiastic and they have many really fun online conversations . . . This morning an extensive discussion of fluoride in the water poisoning our precious bodily fluids provided a remarkable laugh.
More to the point . . .
AS OF THIS WRITING, THE MISSOURI GOP HAS POLITELY IGNORED THE RECALL KC PETITION AND WOULD RATHER FUND THEIR OWN CANDIDATES!!!
When we started asking around about the petition we were impressed with the political insiders who took meetings with this crew, turns out they were mostly just sizing up the leaders and looking to exploit any potential funding sources that could be hijacked. The reality is that there is very little ideological loyalty among most power players in Kansas City . . . Conservative/Progressive "values" are just something to sell the clueless plebs whilst sources of cash are far more important for people who make a living working in local politics.
Meanwhile . . .
Putting an initiative petition on the ballot is serious business and Mayor Q has no shortage of powerful friends who would be happy to win a favor at the expense of political noobs who have made more than a few rookie mistakes in full public view.
