Portrait of Jason Grill: Hunky Mo. State Rep. loses Pics, License, Preps for Becks

When you’re hot you’re hot…

And in the case of Mo. State Rep. Jason Grill the heat just keeps on coming. It’s one thing for somebody to swipe the affable, hunky pol’s license plate sticker – that can and does happen to anyone – his framed publicity photo is another matter. Two have gone missing from the Westport Flea Market’s “Wall of Fame.”

“About a year ago I gave them a photo of me, a headshot and it was stolen,” Grill says. “And I was like, ‘Why would somebody steal that – there are so many pictures on that wall – you know, they have Holly Starr. So I gave them another photo and it was up for a couple months and it was stolen on Friday night.”

This time however the culprits were caught on the Flea’s surveillance camera.

“This blonde girl walks up to it and she takes it off the wall and looks at it and starts laughing and dancing, then she puts it back on the wall,” Grill says. “And her friend walks up and looks at it – I can’t make out who they are although the video is in color – and then the blonde girl takes it again and puts it in her purse.”

Sounds sorta stalker-iffic…

“There was an obvious agenda because she had this enormous white purse and went right over to the photo and took it even though the place was packed,” Grill says. “It’s just so weird – they obviously know who I am. I guess it’s probably sitting on some girl’s mantle or something as a joke.”

Here’s an idea; instead of replacing it, Grill should go with the flow and just put up a rack with autographed 8x10s. Heck, hang it next to the dart board with my photo.

    I’m pretty sure you read that comment wrong! I read it a few times to “try” to see where you were coming from and never got there!! He was just saying that it seemed like a joke, remember in college when you took something from a frat house and then sat it on your mantle…like haha, I got it!! I’ve ran into Jason at a few events and have always been greeted with a smile and a handshake!! I think you should figure something else to do than post negative comments about something like this!! A prank…that’s all it was:)

    You really do need to get over yourself. The only place where your picture should be up is at the bottom of a urinal, dart board or lining a trash can. You are the kind of guy that thinks he is so great and wonderful but unfortunately you really aren’t. “big fish” in a small pond? If the picture is replaced, it should include a marker so people can write on your face.

    In response to “dolphin’s” comment… really? Did you read the whole bog? Did you read the part about where Jason Grill is donating a portion of proceeds from HIS organized event to Autism Speaks? Sounds pretty “great and wonderful” to me.

    Genius is the ability to distinguish the important from the unimportant. Jason grill, in the big scheme of things is not very important. Kinda like JFK Jr. with less money and intelligence.

    Hatred – the anger of the weak.

    The negative comments are all from the same talking points and source. It’s almost funny (more like unfortunate) to think that people are trying to spin an event benefiting children with autism into something negative.

    Dolphin and Mermaid are just Bitter Betties. Take your negativity back to the Raytown bar where you usually drown your sorrows.

    If Jason exudes confidence, it’s because of all of it that he receives from the community, and because of the great things he has done early on in his career.

    Dolphin and Mermaid, what have you done for your community??

    A portion of the proceeds? Where is the rest going? And how much exactly is “a portion”? I love people that organize events to make money and deceive people by making it seem like some sort of charity event. Hey Jason, how about some transparency with this little event? I’d love to see ALL of the financial numbers when it’s all said and done. Maybe Hearne could post those numbers in another column.

    I’m not sure there’s any deception going on here. When a politician hosts an event, I typically assume they are raising funds and I’m sure the autism group is very grateful to be receiving a portion. Additionally, I would assume there are costs for the food, drinks, and labor. And from the whining attitude you portray, it seems like someone has a problem with the support he’s received.

    Great idea “Weary”, but why stop there? I say that Hearne should post all of Jason’s finances on here…we have a right to know. And what about Hearne? His financial information should be posted as well, because you can never be too sure about the chance that he is on Jason’s payroll.

    I feel your pain because I too was very disappointed recently when I contributed in the Heart Walk and not a single person working would give me a complete breakdown of where every penny was going. I therefore reasonably assumed, that much, if not all, of the proceeds were going to line the pockets of the event organizers and not to the worthy cause I wanted to help.

    The ignorance of certain people never ceases to amaze me. I believe further discussion on my lava lamp story would be more intellectually stimulating than reading another comment by someone like yourself.

    If it’s a fundraiser for him THEN SAY THAT! Say “I’m hosting an event to raise money for my future campaigns and I intend on giving x% to the Autism Group.” That’s transparent and honest. I don’t care who the fundraiser is for. I would expect the same transparency for ANY POLITICIAN. In today’s economy and with all the corruption and wasteful spending in DC I am holding politicians to higher level of responsibility.

    Birdman/Grill Campaign Manager,
    Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it? I understand that it must be a nice luxury sucking off the teat of Mr. Grill and the copious perks that come along with his elected position. I’m sorry if I expect my representatives to be forthright, transparent and honest when promoting a fundraiser campaign. I don’t care whom the fundraiser is for…I would expect the same. He is an elected public servant, and considering the track record of politicians past, it would serve him well to take the high road on all matters involving money, fundraising, or charitable donations.

    Weary and Birdman, Shark is right – there are costs to planning and managing any event. That’s the reality and a source of most of the ignorance to which you refer. Ignorance regarding the money and time associated with most events for charity or any benefit.

    I don’t see any lack of transparency here – just lots of bitterness and false accusations. And a major chip on your shoulder.

    Hold non-profit organizations accountable for their fundraising and allocation of monies received. The most FRUSTRATING ignorance is when people don’t realize the “overhead” required to run a charitable organization, even when it’s reputable in the percentage of funds that it grants or donates directly to the cause it benefits. Do your homework.

    If I am Grill’s campaign manager, then this money swindling goes deeper than i thought because I haven’t seen a dime. Might have to tender my resignation.

    I guess what I am failing to understand is what you think Jason hasn’t been “forthright, transparent and honest” about? He said, “I’m going to give a portion of the proceeds to Autism Speaks.” Not sure how you took this to mean that every cent was going to Autism Speaks, but perhaps you should read it again. Are some proceeds going to Grill’s campaign? I have no idea (man I am terrible at my position), but I assume they are. And I am pretty sure most everyone attending understands this as well. If a politician wasn’t able to raise money for his campaign, then only the very wealthy would be able to run for office. Is this your preference? Further, if Grill was to give only $50 to Autism Speaks, are they worse off for it? And would this make him a liar? No and no. I hate to be the person to teach you how the world works, but apparently no one else has. Have a good day.

    Shasta (like the cola!),

    I really hope you detected my sarcasm in my previous post about not seeing financials of fundraisers, etc. If not, I apologize and couldn’t agree with you more.
