Kansas City Mayor's Son Handcuffed in P&L Incident

Kyle James, the 22 year-old son of Kansas City, Mo Mayor Sly James was handcuffed during an incident in Power and Light District on Saturday morning. According to the Police report, the young Mr James was causing a disturbance, using profanity, and annoying other customers at Fran's Restaurant around 4AM. The officer noted a strong odor of alcohol on Mr James and behavior that was consistent with being intoxicated. Kyle also refused to pay for his meal.

Apparently, this is not the first incident for Kyle James at this establishment. In the incident report, the officer, who works security at Fran's, stated that he had run ins with the subject on previous occasions. On Saturday however, he really got wound up. He pulled the ol' "do you know who I am" and told the officer he would have him fired the next day. Of course, he also pulled the race card.

While being escorted out of the restaurant, he was involved in a verbal altercation with three men waiting for a cab telling them he would "fuck them like that sweet sixth grade pussy on the playground" - WTF? He also stated that if they met him at 39th & Troost he would "fuck them up". I doubt Kyle hangs out much at 39th and Troost. Sounds like an idiot and a spoiled brat. He was not arrested, but probably should have been.

Sly James is Kansas City's New Mayor

Sly James is the new mayor of Kansas City. He defeated Mike Burke by about 6,000 votes - His victory margin was particularly large in Jackson County. Turnout was a paltry 21% - about what was expected. The friendly nature of the race might have hurt turnout, or general voter apathy is a likely reason as well. It was better than the 15% turnout for the primary, however.

Though he has never been elected to political office before, James won over voters with his likable personality and his portrayal as a political outsider. He is a successful lawyer with a knack for leadership, having served as President of the Kansas City Bar Association. He had endorsements form local labor unions and hispanic organizations, as well as the Kansas City Star (whatever that was worth). Mike Burke, his opponent, was endorsed by "three former mayors", as he would tell anyone that listened - in fact, that seemed to be the only thing he said during the campaign. Congratulations Sly James, and good luck figuring out the Kansas City budget without the e-tax that will soon be defeated.
