Will the Last Staffer in the Koster Campaign Please Turn Out the Lights?

May 21st, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

Could Koster’s carrying water for Rod Jetton and his cavorting around at casinos with him be the reason for the recent staff defections? Or, as we’ve seen from the very beginning, (see video below) Koster’s assembled a pretty lame staff?

From Missouri Political News:

Another one of State Sen. Chris Koster’s Attorney General campaign staffers quit this week, the second in the last 10 days.

MPN has learned David Knight left Koster’s campaign to join Joan Barry’s state senate campaign.

The staff changes have led some political insiders to question whether Koster’s campaign will survive the next two months leading up to the August primary

    Hey doofus – I know you don’t care about being accurate and more interested imitating the Post Disgrace in printing factually inaccurate info but Koster wasn’t at the casino.

    You are a bigger laughing stock than you realize. I’m almost feeling sorry for you – almost.

    Hey Linda. If Koster wasn’t at the casino, then this is a softball for his campaign…….right? Why hasn’t Koster sent out a press release denying this scandalous accusation?

    Oh by the way, nice legs in the video. You Go Girlfriend!!!!! 😀

    Linda who? Why should Koster deny a false report by a nobody blogger?

    I only post it to point out that the blogger is indeed not only a nobody but a known liar to boot.

    Perhaps said blogger should spend less time in O’Brien’s and more time in the books. Perhaps he is taking the Connie Johnson route to passing the bar.

    sounds like a case of shoot the messenger if you ask me. koster, jetton, crowell and their minions, should be more concerned with who’s watching and dropping the dime on them, instead of trying to attack poor scooter.

    wasn’t this post written by j. jonah jameson? i thought i read a few weeks back that a new writer would be contributing to mopns anonymously. i think you’re angst linda would be better directed at j. jonah.

    Doesn’t matter who wrote he post – a liar is a liar. Koster wasn’t there and the liar says he was.

    Sometimes the messenger needs shot.

    Oh yeah – this post to which I so eloquently pointed out the shortcomings of Scooter was indeed written by Scooter .

    Whether the posts are written by Scooter, Parker whoever,they are no better than the PD and much worse than the guy they spend so much time trying to run down. At least people trust his stuff.

    I trust what Messenger writes a lot more than the drivel here and I don’t trust Messenge at all.

    How do you KNOW Koster wasn’t there? Were you spending the weekend with him?? Fess up….

  • 8 Benny // May 22, 2008 at 8:42 am

    Cathy – do we need to lump you in with Scooter and J?

    I direct you to the original liar posting on Boys night out. You will find the answer to your question there.

    Besides, I don’t swing that way.

    Hey Linda B! Here’s a little advice from Shakespeare:

    All that it says on the previous post is that the “boys night out” was it was over the weekend. It didn’t say which day. Maybe he was in Kansas City on SATURDAY night, but when does one night constitute a weekend? Do you no longer include Friday night (after session closes at 6pm) or Sunday night?

  • 11 Benny // May 23, 2008 at 3:14 pm

    Cathy, let me type real s-l-o-w so you can understand.

    Koster – in KC Saturday night.

    Jetton, Smith, Crowell & others – at Ameristar Saturday night – firsthand eyewitness – no Koster.

    Simple, straightforward.
