A weekend request earned a surprising bit of traction for Mayor Q.
As we approach campaign season we remind readers of the Mayor's campaign strategy over the past few election cycles . . .
He is extremely nice, gains confidence and then, inevitably, BACKSTABS or engages in shameless double talk.
The punchline: It works.
Two quick examples . . .
Behind the scenes candidate Quinton Lucas befriended at least three colleagues and convinced them they where real life buddies only later to join the litany of "activists" in calling them out them malevolent racists . . . Heck, he even sent one of them to "bias" training.
Another story that's on the record and we enjoy because it miffs everybody . . .
Mayor Quinton Lucas tricked the Kansas City police and their leadership into not just an endorsement but ENTHUSIASTIC support.
Their recent posturing shouldn't fool voters.
