My Klassy Kelty Kake

UPDATE: You can see pictures from the whole event HERE
(Hat Tip-CFW Reader)

This cake is from Matt Kelty's 43rd Birthday/Fundraiser event.

Take a closer look at the cake...Mr. Kelty takes a cheap shot at Nelson Peters.

Why would he continue taking shots at Nelson Peters? He defeated him in the primary, but they're in the same party and that's long done with. Is gloating one of the famous 'Kelty Values' he plans to bring to the city?

Kan you provide any kontext for this kake?

Matt did not supply the cake and had no idea what was on it until he saw it. Get over it already.

Matt did not commission the Zogby poll and did not know anything about it until he saw it.

Kelty may not have actually iced the cake himself, but he has set the mood and the example for the disciple who did.

Because I know said...

Sheesh. It was a BAKER... come ON...

And if there's one thing this blog is against, it's cheap shots against politicians.

Those Kelty people really need to get over it man. I mean, are they pissed that they won or what. Like Peters said in the newspaper, "I've heard of sore losers, but sore winners?"

Kelty may not have baked the cake, but it was not the baker who designed it. It was however, Matt who joked about, admired and ate the cake. As much as he denies it now (is anyone surprised??) the proof is in the pictures.
Geez, can't these people stop making stupid mistakes long enough to get through a simple birthday party??
Judgment and discretion would have made any other moral thinking person walk away--and it should have been double time for someone wanting to be a leader of a city.

Matt did eat the cake and laughed at the jokes. He loves to joke around

Matt is a joke.

Ellen said...

Leave Matt and Marla alone! They did not bake the cake, they barely ate any of the cake. I bet they had no idea who even brought the cake to the partay.

NOT GLENNA said...

Matt did not commission, did not bake, did not decorate and did not know anything about the cake. This is part of the Steve Shine conspiracy! GO MATT, GO!

Anonymous said...

Any leader with an iota of class would have had the cake removed and not eaten or joked about it.

Vanilla Cake said...

Can anyone confirm that Steve Shine commissioned the baking of this cake? And Ellen, what does Marla Irving have to do with any of this? Did she bake the cake and eat it too?

Because I know said...

SO how many pictures are there of the cake? How many pictures of everyone else is there? There seems to be a lot more happening in that room besides a cake.

Matt Kelty said...

Hey, I baked that cake! And Marla iced it. And Dan T. provided the props. It was a group effort, but we got 'er done! Just didn't think we'd get busted.

Just watched the 11:00 news. They mentioned that Talirico, Peters, Mitson and McGauley were the target of the ridicule on that cake but somehow didn't notice that Sauder was also. I wonder if Souder will regret "endorsing" Kelty? I'm sure he never really wanted to. The whole Kelty kamp is pathetic. Kathy Hawks was also on that cake, depicted as the wicked witch of the west. They had an outhouse (the GOP) landing on her.

And they wonder why they don't have the support from the party.

Steve Shine did not commission the cake. It took him about thirty seconds and one phone call to get the cake photos removed from Kelty's website.
Steve is a lot of things, but stupid isn't one of them. He knows this will pass and he will and does need his party to heal. The would not stoop this low.
Was the wicked witch supposed to be KH Kathy Hawks or KR Karen Richards? The party goer I spoke with said it was Richards.

I don't think anyone is blaming Steve Shine (for once) for the stupidity of Kelty and his crew. And yes, it probably will blow over like all of Kelty's dumb antics. But when you put all of Kelty's mistakes together, the clear picture you get is that he is a fool, surrounded by more fools. This cake only represents what Kelty has done throughout his campaigning, including the primary. He's immature, easily lead, politically inept and sure as hell doesn't know how to make friends. He wants the party to stand behind him yet pushes them away with his jealousy and hate. This isn't the only time he's pulled this kind of bs, but it's the only time he got caught. Someone should "come out" with all the other low things he's done and show the people what he's really like. Not the nice guy he portrays himself to be.

article from the JG here:

kelty comes across as a total idiot almost every single day. if it isn't one of his horrible campaign videos, it's the birthday cake he wasn't aware of that was made by a very caring supporter. the most consistent thing about kelty is his inconsistency - between his actions and his words and, hell, even between his words at the beginning and ending of a jg article on his birthday cake.

Because I know said...

Can't anyone find humor in politics?

Get over yourselves. You can't attack him on the issues, but you can go to town over a cake.

Losers.

Anonymous said...

because i know -

Yes, there is humor in politics. Issues? What issues? Harrison Square? The only hope that Ft Wayne has to develope a decent, thriving downtown and Kelty hates that idea. Merging city and county departments to save money? Nobody likes or respects Kelty so I don't see this as happening. His safety issues for Ft. Wayne? He's a copy-cat! Been there, done that. He will NOT be the man to bring this city together. As he has proven every time he opens his mouth.

Kelty relies on his integrity, honesty and religion to get him votes but at every turn, we see he actually has none. Actions speak louder than words, and if Kelty keeps up his stupid shenanigans and name-calling, he doesn't have a chance. I pray he keeps talking. Talk himself right out of the running. So far, so good.

As the world turns said...

Wow, this is turning into quite the Soap Opera. Nelson Peters called Kelty and Kelty said he knew nothing about the Kake? He obviously at the Kake, and the Kake was made by a Kelty Supporter. The GOP outhouse squashing Karen Richards is a little over the top, and why is Kelty attacking Mark Souder? Souder loves Kelty and probably would have had some of the Kake.

I'm laughing so hard right now:

"I don’t endorse the comments made on the cake."

Sammy T is GOD said...

“It’s that sort of stuff that has people so concerned about the guy being mayor,” Talarico said. “This isn’t a race for student council.”

Anonymous said...

Ellen and the rest of you Kelty Klowns...at what point is Matt 100% responsible for anything that happens in his campaign? Never is my guess. This guy is a joke and always will be. I love Sam T, but don't think Matt Kelty could win a student council election-he would be too busy bragging about the person he beat the year before in middle school in the primary. "I don’t endorse the comments made on the cake" is second only to I didn't know about it even though he is pictured in the Journal holding the outhouse...which is exactly where his campaign has gone.

I don't need to attack kelty on the issues because this sort of thing makes it obvious he's not deserving of enough respect to consider his positions on 'the issues'.

and this guy is fit to be Mayor? I don't think so.

as the world turns said:

Nelson Peters called Kelty and Kelty said he knew nothing of the cake. Wait a minute. This seems like Kelty may be lying! Lying?? Not Kelty, man of honor and integrity! Lying? Kelty?

I'd write the list of things Kelty has lied about but it's just getting too long and I don't have the energy for it.

Newspaper people! Write a story on all the lies Kelty has told and give the people of Fort Wayne the true story of Mr. Kelty and his Christian ideals.

Anonymous said...

The lies continue....
Kelty said he did not know about the cake until it was already cut and served.

Whoever made that Kake put a lot of time, effort and money into it. It's made with rolled fondant, not something an amateur would use. There's absolutely NO WAY someone would bring a cake like that and NOT make sure Matt Kelty saw if before it was cut.

This guy is a liar through and through

Not the Baker said...

Someone should piece together these comments into one great letter to the editor.

KeltyKake!

Anyone have the picture of him holding the outhouse?

Anonymous said...

someone on the allen county democratic blog said that while working for lugar, kelty was known as a pathilogical liar. Imagine that.

How did the man get as far as he did?

Taking down words also has something on this story. Kelty keeps trying to down play it but it is newsworthy. Once again, it shows him using piss-poor judgement and then lying about it. I think the man needs serious help.

Anonymous said...

Maybe if the newspapers did some research they would find some information out. I agree, I think Mr. Kelty has some serious problems.

Kelty Kan be a Krazy Kake eater.

In the words of Donna Summers: Someone left the cake out in the rain.I don't think that I can take it Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again Oh, no!

Anonymous said...

If a loyal supporter created the KeltyKake, was he/she not espousing ideas common to the campaign? Or are the people Matt chooses to be surrounded by disorganized, independent indivi-duals not respresentative of the flavor of the Kampaign? How can we trust him to make good choices in a Mayoral Kabinet when he can't wrangle a bunch of Kampaign Klowns? And, why do they (yes, Matt, you are painted with the same brush as your "close supporters")continue to bash the Republican Party, some of whom voted for Nelson but were prepared to back Matt when he won the primary? Gracious? nope.Spiteful, petty,childish,deceitful,disloyal- I could go on. Suffice it to say you're digging your own mayoral grave, Matt.

Marla did. It was her idea and her design. She ate most of it too.

Roach for Deputy Mayor for the Kelty Administration. Why not?

Keepin' it real said...

Man, some people can't take a joke. I can't believe this is actually a news story. This has obviously been manufactured to make Matt look bad, like the people who last week called the campaign to tell them a forum was cancelled. The media called people featured sarcastically on a birthday cake to stir up controversy. Has anyone ever heard of a celebrity roast? It was probably meant in good fun for a private event but like many things it's been blown waaayy out of proportion.

How is Mark Souder on a piece of toilet paper not funny?

Good for Matt Kelty. I would eat his Kake anyday.

So see how many miles this silly stunt got in terms of media?
Cake-Gate!
much ado about nothing- isnt a cake supposed to be divided?
And matt surely isnt a vanilla ice cream candidate is he?
Is the wicked withc Juile Inkseep?
Maybe the Libertarians need to bake a cake- or is that "Half-baked"?
anyway- Roach- there is no substitute.

It's only a roast if the people being roasted are there.
