TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY RECALL MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS PETITIONERS START BEGGING FOR MONEY & PAYING 'VOLUNTEERS' FOR VOTER SIGNATURES!!!
It was inevitable.
Even so-called "grassroots" organizers need cash to fund their ambitions.
Accordingly . . .
TODAY, ACTIVISTS LEADING THE EFFORT TO RECALL MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS STARTED PLEADING WITH SOCIAL MEDIA DENIZENS FOR $50K IN DONATIONS!!!
The clips are pretty cringe-worthy and offer confirmation that organizers aren't as altruistic as they first claimed AND it's harder to influence politics in the real world than it is to get a bunch of worthless social media accolades.
Recall dude Brad starts the asking and even offers campaign jobs to signature collectors.
And then, Kyle offers a nice broom analogy to begin his remarks whilst imagining that people have 500 bucks to finance this effort.
Organizers say they need money for billboards, t-shirts and signs along with paying signature collectors. Kyle was the first to talk about a $50K goal whilst Brad acknowledges that this cash will ALSO be used for other candidates and causes beyond the recall effort.
Behind the scenes, a few of our GOP friends are actually surprised these guys took the bait and will inadvertently offer up their donor list publicly for smarter right-wing local political consultants to effectively mine.
Admittedly, we thought these guys were smarter than this . . .
Still, we're certain that these rising stars know that they're dancing on the line of all the rules & regs which govern ballot initiatives by way of the Missouri Ethics Commission. These are smart guys who, obviously, now understand that many people might now categorize their efforts as a political action committee.
We're sure they're dedicated to documenting every penny and collecting info to hand over to officials should they ask.
They WILL NOT make the same mistakes that have confronted other right-wing efforts. Obviously!!!
Again, we want to remain objective here and whilst political FUN-RAISING can be tricky, again, these look like really smart dudes who obviously wouldn't trust the wrong people and get in over their heads.
Moreover, begging for money online no longer has the negative stigma that it once held at the outset of the Internets age. Heck, even former Disney youngster star Bella Thorne is now on a pr0n site asking for donations from her most dedicated fans.
No hate here . . . If people want to give their cash to a group of Northland political noobs in hopes of recalling the Mayor, that's a perfectly acceptable decision despite the fact that the American economy is struggling amid the ongoing economic impact of a pandemic.
Whilst old school petitioners like Clay Chastain never solicited donations publicly, the NextGen taking a different strategy might power their efforts to greater heights.
In fairness, we offer a look at Recall Mayor Q pitch so that readers can decide for themselves . . .
Recall KC - They've raised $1700 bucks so far.
Even better, the website is smart not to make any specific promises: "Your support and contributions will enable us to get the word out and remove the corruption in Kansas City politics."
And so we ask . . .
WILL YOU GIVE THESE NORTHLAND POLITICAL NOOB DOODS MONEY IN HOPES OF RECALLING MAYOR Q???
You decide . . .
