KMBC report fact checks Hanaway claims

When Catherine Hanaway's ads have aired recently, I have been irritated by her claim, the same claim made by nearly everyone who is running for office, that they are fed up with career politicians.

Wasn't this woman Speaker of the House in Missouri and didn't she run unsuccessfully for higher office?

In the accompanying video, KMBC investigative reporter Mike Mahoney brings up that Hanaway statement, as well as fact checking some of the other things she has been claiming.

It seems odd in a race that includes two candidates, John Brunner and Eric Greitens, who have never served in public office that Hanaway is trying to claim the outsider mantle.

It will really be strange if the fourth major GOP candidate for governor, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, decides to make that claim.
