“…Apparently a few people staged a die in on the street next to the Governor’s Mansion. In the afternoon in July in Jefferson City. Really? It’s not like they were blocking rush hour traffic…”
We continue to get comments:
Are you trying to justify that no law was broken because there was not “rush hour traffic”? That is pitiful. Protesters have the right to assemble, but they have no need to block the streets and expect nothing to happen. Also, please work on your grammar and sentence structure. I got a headache from reading this.
A hand wringing concern troll. Heh.
You’re here, aren’t you?
“…I got a headache from reading this.”
Then don’t read us. Or, I dunno, start your own blog and do better?
On July 4, 2020 in Warrensburg:
Interesting. People in the street. Police are present. No escalation. Peaceful protest. No pepper spray or tear gas.
Sam Page (D), the candidate challenging republican incumbent Peter Kinder in the Lt. Governor race, is the target of a lot of republican campaign trash tactics. Does anybody think Peter Kinder (R) might be a little concerned about his re-election prospects?
Gee, the letter is so “personal”, and yet it is unsigned.
Uh, yep. “Citizens Taking Charge”, the same entity behind the nasty robocalls.
The letter was reads like it was written by a junior high school age political operative.
“Heavy heart”? Instead, try “really scared of losing current job, eh Peter”?
What do you mean “we”, republican hacks?
The envelope was addressed to an individual who contributed money to Sam Page’s campaign – and who would have shown up in the itemized contribution portion of his campaign finance reports. There was no return address.
The envelope, please…
Permit, permit, who paid for the permit?
I have a sneaking suspicion we’re going to find out.
By the way, the grass is green everywhere this election cycle when it comes to Democratic candidates.
Okay, who is paying for all this? Well, according to a report filled with the Missouri Ethics Commission [pdf], “Citizens Taking Charge” received a contribution of $40,000.00 from the “American Democracy Alliance” on July 31, 2008.
The Missouri Secretary of State has an “American Democracy Alliance” listed in Kansas City, but it has a different address than the one listed in the campaign finance report. Could this be the same entity?
