What Mannies & Messenger Won’t Tell You: Part 2

October 30th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

Kudos to the K.C Star’s Prime Buzz for at least telling the other side of the unfolding Scott Eckersley saga. Tony Messenger and Jo Mannies’ tag team hit job last Sunday would have made any professional wrestling fan proud. It reminds you of when one wrestler distracts the referee, while his partner beats the hell out of the defenseless wrestler in their corner. Both journalists swept over lightly the allegations that Eckersley worked on state time for his family’s business and received explicit emails on his state account – emails suggesting bi-sexual threesomes, bondage, and spanking.

If this wasn’t enough cause for his dismissal. Mr. Eckersley, a member of the Governor’s staff, is having warrants issued for his arrest for failing to appear in court. To make matters worse, Eckersley faxes a handwritten note to Judge Schneider “desperately” requesting that he “pull back the warrant” he issued for his arrest. Why would an attorney handwrite a letter to a judge? In our opinion, it doesn’t look very professional. As an attorney, Eckersley should have known that he needed to file a motion, not fax a handwritten letter. In addition, Eckersley continues to misrepresent himself by telling the judge that he was the Governor’s “legal counsel”. We hope his legal work for Governor Blunt was better than his own.

Below is a copy of Eckersley’s handwritten note to Judge Schneider:
