    A Kansas City-area school district that garnered national attention when a transgender student was crowned homecoming queen in 2015 has installed gender-neutral restrooms at two new elementary schools and in some existing locations. The individual bathroom stalls at Rising Hill Elementary and Northview Elementary in the North Kansas City School District two new elementary schools are enclosed with floor-to-ceiling walls and lockable doors, the Kansas City Star reported. The restrooms still have an open alcove area with a common trough sink. Both male and female symbols adorn the same sign on the wall outside the bathrooms. The elementary schools opened...

    A Missouri woman said she’s hurt and distraught after being denied a job because her name was considered too “ghetto” — but company officials insist a hacker sent the racist message. Hermeisha Robinson, of Bellefontaine Neighbors, shared her experience with Mantality Health in Chesterfield in a Facebook post on Monday, saying she was discriminated against due to her name — even though she had what it takes to fill the job post. “I have a public service announcement,” Robinson wrote in an all-caps post. “I am very upset because today I received an email about this job that I applied...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A new poll released after the Aug. 8 primary shows incumbent U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D – Missouri) in a tie with Republican Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley. The poll, conducted Aug. 8-9 by Missouri Scout, shows the race tied, which is in line with a series of polls conducted in the race since this spring. Both candidates received 47 percent of the vote, with six percent of those polled saying they were undecided. The poll also asked respondents their thoughts on amending the state constitution to permit the use of medical marijuana, with 54 percent...
  • Pro union, still for Trump

    The Politico ^ | August 13, 2018 | Ian Kullgren
    PRO-UNION, STILL FOR TRUMP: As as many as half of Republicans who voted in the Missouri primary last week sided with unions and against the state’s right-to-work law in a ballot measure that overturned it, according to Jack Cardetti, a Democratic strategist and spokesman for the state’s anti-right-to-work campaign. Cardetti is no disinterested party, so that estimate may be high (though the returns show it’s certain plausible). But it’s remarkable any pro-union voters still favor Trump, given Trump’s staunchly anti-union policies. (POLITICO’s Timothy Noah reviewed them in November.) “Pro-union, pro-Trump voters say that even if they consider unions crucial, they...

    Lawyers paid $2,500 by campaign just after they wrote 'scathing open letter' to GOP's Josh Hawley The lawyers who were lead authors of a letter criticizing Republican Josh Hawley's performance as attorney general were paid $2,500 by the campaign of his Democratic opponent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.). The $2,500 payment from McCaskill's campaign to Trachtenberg Germinder Hirth Litigation LLC came on April 11, 2018, about three weeks after two of the firm's top lawyers, Joanna Trachtenberg and Andrew Hirth, wrote their letter criticizing Hawley as "incompetent." The payment, for "legal services," was the first TGH Litigation had received from...
  • Springfield, Missouri votes down ban on acquiring new pit bulls

    First-ever election win for pit bull advocates SPRINGFIELD, Missouri––Out-spending voices for animal and human safety by a margin perhaps as high as $10,000 to $1.00, pit bull advocates on August 7, 2018 celebrated their first-ever defeat of a pit bull ban in a municipal general election. Reversing the outcome of earlier attempts to repeal pit bull bans in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and Aurora, Colorado, pit bull advocates in Springfield, Missouri polled at least 21,142 votes, or 68% of the votes cast, against 9,772 votes (32%) for the ban.

    Missouri voters delivered a resounding victory to unions Tuesday, rejecting a right-to-work law against compulsory union fees that had been passed by Republican state officials but placed on hold for more than a year after organized labor petitioned for a referendum. National and local labor unions spent millions of dollars to defeat Proposition A, hoping to reverse the momentum against them from a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling and the adoption of similar laws limiting labor powers in other historically strong union states. Officials at the AFL-CIO called the Missouri vote "a truly historic moment."

    A deep-pocketed California member of the secretive Democracy Alliance liberal donor club is hosting a $1,000 per-plate fundraising lunch for Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) at her Piedmont home in September. Quinn Delaney, who—along with her husband Wayne Jordan—has given millions of dollars to Democratic candidates and liberal groups, is listed as the host for a midday September 21 fundraiser put on by Electing Women Bay Area PAC and authorized by McCaskill's reelection campaign. The group is putting on a second $1,000 fundraiser for McCaskill that evening at an unspecified address in San Francisco, across the bay from Delaney's home.

Hodgkinson “was a volunteer in [Bernie] Sanders’ campaign” and that “within his mental condition, there was, at least he felt, some sort of political motivation, as horrible as that is to even address.” Correspondent Garrett Haake – reporting from the scene of the attack in Alexandria, Virginia...

Claire McCaskill, focusing on past domestic violence accusations against her husband. “Claire McCaskill has been giving the back of her hand to voters and padding the pockets of her family for a generation… her husband’s treatment of women and her turning a blind eye while funding the agencies that pay her own family is hypocrisy at its finest. Missourians deserve better,” Club for Growth spokeswoman said in a statement provide to the Washington Examiner. The group noted that Suzanne Shepard, the ex-wife of Joseph Shepard,...

    Billionaire conservative businessman Charles Koch’s political network is freezing out Republicans that it believes have violated its fiscally conservative principles, and is, at least for now, only supporting four Senate GOP candidates in the fall. The Koch network is backing GOP Senate candidates in Wisconsin, Missouri, Tennessee and Florida, signaling it will be selective in where it engages as Republicans seek to retain or grow their narrow 51-49 majority. At a Monday presentation to about 500 of the network’s top donors at a five-star resort in the Rocky Mountains, Americans for Prosperity president Tim Phillips made an example out of...

    Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., probably didn't have the best birthday this year. A Kansas City Star report on Tuesday revealed that a whole lot of federal dollars have been flowing to businesses tied to the senator's husband since she took office in 2007. According to the report, more than $131 million in federal subsidies have been routed to companies McCaskill's husband, Joseph Shepard, has invested in since she entered the Senate. "Based on the data, it appears that a growing percentage of Shepard’s personal earnings come from new businesses he has invested in that are receiving federal awards, primarily rural...
