Spin (Kansas) City

Get this...

The KC City Council passes an ordinance to keep our Mayor's wife from constantly volunteering around his office (i.e., hanging out and being a bitch).

The Mayor, whose name is Mark FUNKhouser, vetoed the ordinance.

Sooooo, the Council had to vote to overturn the veto, which they did 11-1. The one vote coming from the Mayor himself... get the FUNK out!

The ordinance states that family members of elected officials can only volunteer infrequently in their relative’s elective offices.

But the Funk Master might not stop there! He's threatened a lawsuit arguing that the ordinance is special legislation aimed at a single person and thus is unconstitutional.

You simply can't make this stuff up. This drama would be better than "Spin City" except for the fact that no one involved in this matter is remotely good looking.
