Press Release

"As has been reported, early this morning, a window was broken at Congressman Cleaver's Kansas City, Missouri office when an individual attempted to throw an item or items at the building," stated John Jones, Chief of Staff to Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II. "This is the second incident within the last three years. The Kansas City Police have completed their initial survey of the scene and we await their report. None of the staff was in the building, and because Congress is in session, Congressman Cleaver is in Washington, D.C. We have been in constant contact with the staff, and we thank the Kansas City Police, the Kansas City Bomb and Arson Squad, the FBI, and the ATF for their quick response and thorough work. All of the Congressman’s offices will be open for regular business."
