Skippy stains don't wash out so easily.
Apropos for #TBT we take a look back into the not so distant past . . . Not for giggles but because so many progressives conveniently forget that a former Democratic Party leader recently had to do hard time in the federal pen and his connection to quite a few local politicos shouldn't be disregarded given that it's a matter of public record.

This week a photo of happier times with meth town Mayor Weir pops up again and will soon be retired now that she is dropping out of her reelection bid.
Speaking of giving it up gracefully . . .
The former courthouse power player was a strident supporter of Jason Kander before the rising star dropped out of a bid for KCMO Mayor.

The former county honcho gave Jackson County Prosecutor "Mean Jean" Peters Baker her big break. Sadly, her career trajectory is objectively moving downward after the controversial elected official quit as Missouri Democratic Chair leading up to one of the most embarrassing statewide sweeps in flyover country history.
Accordingly, tonight we remember so that readers won't forget some of the more humiliating moments in local politics that continue to impact our elections.
