Former Grandview mayor pleads guilty to $35K fraud scheme


KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
The former mayor of Grandview plead guilty in court Tuesday to taking $35,000 intended for a charity and used it for personal expenses.

Steve Dennis pleaded guilty to a federal wiretapping charge, which is a felony. He stole money from the International House of Prayer, a Grandview nonprofit.

Outside the courtroom, though, he said he "unequivocally" did not use any tax dollars for his own use.

"This was all about the donations to the non-profit. That was it," he said. "We really need the ability for me and my family to be able to handle this and the pain that it's caused by ourselves, we'd really appreciate that."

Prosecutors and defense attorneys have worked out a deal where Steve Dennis will face one year and one day in prison in exchange for him giving up his right to appear before a grand jury. He could have faced up to 20 years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs will sentence him in the coming months, but judges generally accept plea deals worked out by defense attorneys and prosecutors.


Dennis admitted he set up fake charities and took $35,000 from International House of Prayer that he then used for his personal benefit, including paying for his family's living expenses.

I skimmed the article and didn't see any mention of party affiliation.Is it safe to assume he's a Democrat?

I looked at many articles and links, couldn't determine whether D or R. The fact that it's not mentioned at all tells me D for sure.

I would think if he was a republican that would have been the first sentence in the article.

If scrubbing $35K is the best he can do then it makes me wonder how he ever made it in politics in the first place.
I seriously doubt it.

You noticed that. I have long held the belief that people with two first or two last names are crooks, stupid or just plain idiots.

i did some searching and found this:http://www.ourcampaigns.com/PartyDetail.html?PartyID=92

The page indicates this is a new trend and actually mandated by law in a number of places (a little vague on that).Being the cynic I am I can't help but wonder if this is a new way of skirting/hiding/distancing oneself from accountability.

from the link:"Nonpartisan by Mandate
In many municipal races throughout the United States, candidates are mandated by charter to run as nonpartisans. Personal political affiliations cannot be disclosed on printed ballots and advertisements, by law. Nonpartisan elections are a new trend in municipal politics as more cities and towns are opting for it."


Steve Dennis is officially listed as "nonpartisan".

This, right after they plastered it across the page in a giant headline and followed up with every sentence beginning with "Republican mayor".

Experience is what you get right after you need it.
