Conservatives from Inside The Beltway now attempt to sway local politics and generate just a bit of grassroots excitement ahead of midterm elections but jumping into the local "defund the police" debate.

A glimpse at tonight's festivities . . .

The Washington, D.C.-based organization will hold a rally 6 p.m. at the Hodge Park Amphitheater to show their support for KCPD and to push for a recall of Lucas. The group’s push comes from what the organization called recent "defunding efforts made by the city council."

Before readers get too excited, here's the deal . . .

Kansas City's recall process is actually pretty tough . . . It's not just a signature collection drive.  Petitioners need to sign a legal document claiming "malfeasance or misfeasance" against an elected official and then they must argue their case against in court, in front of a judge who is usually hesitant to screw with the status quo.

Good luck.

Here's the translation and something that activist Clay Chastain knows very well . . . Petitioners could go to a lot of trouble to raise community awareness, do a great deal of legwork and their efforts could still be thrown out.  

Nevertheless . . . 

This time around Mayor Q's detractors could easily achieve their signature quota and that alone would provide a black eye to the city hall honcho and PROVE that his support has faded.

This will be the 3rd recall attempt against Mayor Q so far.
