I think Tony is wrong.
Bether Gottstein doesn't look like her. Or her.
No. She's a dead wringer for her. (Ok. Hair not quite as good.)
Anyway, at the end of tonight's candidate forum in South KC, during the closing statement, Beth worked in a slam on her opponent, Doug Gamble. One minute she was laying out the usual platitudes, when all of a sudden she said, completely off subject, "You know, you learn a lot of things when you run for office. When I began, I never would've expected that my opponent got a $68 million TIF for a hotel on the Plaza."
Something like that. Anyway, t was so awkward, weird and nasty, that the audience groaned.
Afterward, I heard a number of people saying it was such a gross distortion of the truth that it's pretty much a lie. In reality, from what I understand, Gamble owns 5 percent interest in a property that could get a TIF.
But still. Even if it were true, it backfired.
