A Very Public Decline to a Very Private Meeting with Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder

July 17th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

From Missouri Politics:

Today I received a very nice e-mail from Peter Kinder.

Dear Editor MOTO,

I just wanted to follow up on my blog posting on Friday afternoon…. You can reach me at (573) 751-4727.  I look forward to talking with you soon.
Peter

How flattering! I am not a silly blogger though – I know how hard TeamKinder.com is working to impress the blog-o-sphere – so I asked:

Are you calling all the bloggers, or just me?

I got a reply! But not from Peter, from Team Kinder:

Just you, do you have a phone number, the Lt. Governor can reach [you] at?

Team Kinder

I did have the number, and as I started dialing the phone, I realized that the number I was dialing was to the Missouri State Capitol. I am making a political call. Wouldn’t that mean that the Lt. Governor was doing political work on a taxpayer phoneline? Read more…
