There’s a good chance the next mayor of Kansas City will be gay…
And I’m not talking about Kansas City councilman Jolie Justus.
Because according to several sources, the openly gay Justus’s opponent, Quinton Lucas, is also gay…just not out of the proverbial closet yet.
“I heard that Quinton Lucas is closeted gay,” says one prominent gay woman professional. “And that there may have been a man in the car with him.”
That in reference to Lucas’s high profile DUI bust in Lawrence late last year.
After months of legal maneuvering Lucas made a deal with the court to write a check and dodged a bullet by getting the charges dropped. And thanks to the hush hush way Lawrence Police and prosecutors handled his case, the full police report and dash cam video of his arrest have been kept hidden from the public.

Back to the the reason Kansas City, Missouri is likely to field its first gay mayor:
“Because both candidates are gay,” says one politically active Westport businessman, Lucas supporter and donor. “That story’s been out there for a long time.”
Ditto, adds another Lucas supporter and midtown businessman: “Quinton will be Kansas City’s first closeted mayor.”
“You hear lots of different rumblings about that,” says one politically active woman marketing exec who asked not to be named. “And I’m not sure that he is, but I hear from the gay community that he is. But the black community thinks he’s got some white girlfriend tucked away and that he’s straight. But gay guys are adamant that he goes to gay bars.”
Knowing Lucas as well as she does, the exec’s best guess as to which way he swings:
“I think I would go with gay, because he’s lied about so many things (to me) that he’s adept at it,” she says.
Adds an openly gay woman mental health professional, “I heard that he was (gay) from two separate people at two different functions. Obviously, no one is upset about him being gay, but they call him a douchebag because he hides it while Jolie is totally out.”
