Audio: John Ross Dispells Peter Kinder's Conspiracy Theory

John Ross on the cover of the RFT in August 1998 under the headline, "Gunning for Congress."
The name John Ross made news yesterday when Peter Kinder told media outlets that Ross leaked the Riverfront Times a photo of the lieutenant governor and an ex-stripper named Tammy Chapman.

Kinder went on to assert that Ross is a Democratic operative who works as a contributing editor for the Riverfront Times. As Ross told the Riverfront Times yesterday, all of those allegations are false. He isn't our source. (We can attest to that.) He's never worked for the RFT. (We can also attest to that.) In fact, the only time he's been featured in the Riverfront Times is when the paper ran what Ross calls a "hatchet job" on him in 1998 when he was running for Congress as a gun-toting Democrat.

But as Ross told KTRS' McGraw Milhaven this morning, he's more of a Libertarian than anything and certainly not a "Democratic operative" as Peter Kinder suggests. Ross also told Milhaven that despite Kinder's allegations against him, he'd still vote for him for governor any day over Jay Nixon, whom he sees as being soft on Second Amendment rights.

But don't just take our word for it. Click the links below to the Milhaven interview and hear it directly from the horse's mouth.

Not one mention of why Kinder thinks Ross was in on it.  No mention of why Ross is tied to this.  Ross is obsessed with Chapman, hoping to sleep with her even though she is lesbian.  I saw a creepy youtube video of Ross singing a song to Chapman stating his desires.  Another blog claims that she resided with Ross in the past.  It could just be a coincidence, but why not even a mention in any STL news outlet?  How is this any less credible than the the stripper's.

I think I agree with what John has said, maybe he has dispelled Peter kinder's conspiracy theory.

Kinder completely poked holes in your entire story and all you got is "Ross doesn't work here?"   Ross being an editor for you is hardly the important part of this story.   your hit piece was proven completely false and rediculous but you didn't defend it... telling

Maybe he has dispelled Peter Kinder's conspiracy THEORY.  Too bad he cant dispell the FACT that Peter Kinder is gay.

Is there any doubt whether or not Ross would support HWL for STLGAC president?

 As I have said repeatedly, Tammy Chapman is my closest female friend.  The "creepy" video is a funny song I wrote after a cancer scare that turned out to be benign, where I tease her about being gay.  It sounds a lot better with music, but it's okay as is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

My 18 year old daughter though it was hilarious.  When I performed it on karaoke night with music in front of Tammy's gay friends, they gave me a standing ovation.

My sense of humor may not be the same as yours, but having a good friend that you tease and have fun with hardly qualifies as an obsession...
