SURPRISE!!! KANSAS CITY STARTS TO HATE THE HALL FAMILY THIS WEEK!!!
So, it turns out TKC was completely right about criticizing Hall family privilege earlier this year when we noted that this 1% clan gets a lot more love than all of the cowtown homicide victims put together.
To wit . . .
THIS WEEK KANSAS CITY STARTED TO HATE THE HALL FAMILY AFTER A SOMEWHAT STINGY AND INDECENT PROPOSAL THAT USED A RANSOM ON A DONATION TO CHILDREN'S MERCY AS A POLITICAL GAMBIT TO PASS THE JACKSON COUNTY HEALTH RESEARCH TAX!!!
Hall Family Foundation $75 Million Pledge: Passion For Cause...Or Bribe?
Again, it's not opinion but fact that this ploy went over like a lead balloon.
Kansas City Political Consultants Steve Glorioso and Pat O'Neill are the most high profile names associated with the Jackson County tax campaign and it's hard to believe their veteran advice would have let this one pass.
Still . . .
IT'S REASSURING THAT KANSAS CITY WAS PRETTY MUCH DISGUSTED AT THE HALL FAMILY FOUNDATION USING SICK KIDS AS A POLITICAL BARGAINING CHIP!!!
Of course political pundits gave the Hall's a pass on the slight chance that they may get to kiss their ring one of these days at a cocktail party . . . And this might be overlooked in all the other stuff that happened this week:
