The KC Star features an apparently amusing little article about a”boo-boo” which resulted in a candidate for Democratic Committeeman being left off the ballot. The article portrays a little paperwork mistake, and confusion ensues between two candidates, Martin Kerr and Phil LeVota.
My BS detector is screaming.
Round 1: Phil LeVota got whipped in a campaign for a municipal judge, and Martin Kerr did the whipping on behalf of his friend, Jim Tobin.
Round 2: Phil LeVota and Martin Kerr get into an argument at a Jackson County Democratic meeting, leading brother Steve LeVota to get into a shoving match with the elderly Mr. Kerr.
Round 3: A “mistake” in the Courthouse, where both Kerr and LeVota have lots of backroom connections, somehow results in Martin Kerr’s name, out of all the names on the ballots, to somehow be removed. Now, the election will be decided in the back rooms of Democratic meetings, and the voters who should have the right to choose their Committeeman don’t get to vote on it.
I don’t think so. Methinks there’s some stinking corruption in our County Courthouse, and, if my fellow Democrats have a shred of integrity, they’ll find out who it was behind it, and fix the problem.
