TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SHOCK!!! SEX OFFENDER CONTROVERSY EXPLODES ON THE KANSAS CITY NEIGHBORHOOD ADVISORY COUNCIL!!!
Tonight we bring EXCLUSIVE AND FIRSTword of a controversy in Kansas City neighborhoods.
Here are the facts:
Missouri State Highway Patrol Sex Offender Registry lists Orrin Lewis Ellis with charges of rape and sodomy against a female ages 8 and 6.
Kansas City Insiders sent info our way wondering about the service of a person named Orrin Ellis on the Kansas City Neighborhood Advisory Council.
Note that the addresses match up on Kansas City's website and the Missouri Highway Patrol site.
Now . . .
THERE IS A CONTROVERSY COMING SOON ABOUT REMOVING MR. ELLIS FROM THE BOARD GIVEN THIS HORRIFIC LISTING!!!
Sources at City Hall confirm that there has been a request to ask Mr. Ellis to resign. He has not answered the request.
To be fair, we spoke with friends of Mr. Ellis and they note the crimes took place 20 years ago but still acknowledge the serious nature of the listing.
However . . .
THIS HOT MESS REFLECTS POORLY ON THE COMMUNITY GIVEN THAT MR. ELLIS WAS AN ELECTED AND NOT AN APPOINTED MEMBER OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL!!!
He obviously has some standing in his community given that election to the Advisory Council is done by Neighborhood Associations.
City Hall insiders note that had the office been appointed by the City there would have been extensive background checks that might have made an issue about this info before it became public. Still, in the age of Google and mobile phones its hard to understand how neighborhood leaders wouldn't have performed a bit of due dilligance.
And here's how the story should unfold . . .
City Hall Insiders tell us that, if he doesn't resign first, there is an effort to remove Mr. Ellis from the board given the MO Sex Offender Database Listing that has recently come to light. A vote at the next Neighborhood Advisory Council might take place if it's required.
Special thanks to sources at City Hall, Kansas City Insider, Neighborhoods and even mainstream media TV reporters for giving us insight into this Kansas City Neighborhood Controversy.
