TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY INSIDERS BLAME LEGISLATORS THERESA GARZA RUIZ AND CRYSTAL WILLIAMS FOR QUESTION 1 FAIL TOO!!!
For the record, there will be a lot of people taking a fall if Question 1 goes down in flames.
TKC EXCLUSIVE . . .
BEHIND THE SCENE WE HEAR THAT QUESTION 1 IS TRAILING IN LOCAL POLLING BY AS MUCH AS 6 POINTS WHILE SUPPORTERS SAY IT'S A CONTEST TOO CLOSE TO CALL!!!
But more important than that . . .
JACKSON COUNTY INSIDERS ARE CALLING INTO QUESTION THE VOTES OF "REFORMERS" CRYSTAL WILLIAMS AND THERESA GARZA RUIZ FOR THEIR TACIT SUPPORT OF THE CONTROVERSIAL JACKSON COUNTY QUESTION 1 SALES TAX!!!
Both of them helped put it on the ballot in one way or another . . . Behind the scenes we hear this has NOTHING AT ALL to do with one of their homies getting a job with the County.
But their decision in and of itself has consequences . . .
For Theresa . . . She's might now headed into a City Council run on a losing streak and in support of an unpopular measure. If the tax loses . . . Her ability to bring home the bacon will be called into question by her Union backers.
But here's the real fun . . .
WHAT HAPPENED TO CRYSTAL WILLIAMS AND HER PROMISES TO REFORM JACKSON COUNTY GIVEN HER SUPPORT FOR THIS OLD SCHOOL REGRESSIVE TAX?!?!
Seriously . . .
IF CRYSTAL WILLIAMS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SOOOOOOOOO MUCH DIFFERENT THAN ALL OF THESE OTHER POLITICOS . . . WHY DID SHE VOTE IN SUCH A TYPICAL FASHION ON THIS TOPIC?!?
Once again, when it comes to actions as a legislator and not just happy talk . . . We've seen that Crystal Williams has absolutely no substance or accountability as a legislator and she has simply used identity politics to swindle her way into office. Look at her legislative record and it's clear to see that she's not any different than the so-called "good old boy" network she vowed to replace . . . If anything, she's simply less effective and far more hypocritical.
We don't forget that Crystal was one of the clueless politicos who mindlessly vowed to fight the 1% during an afternoon of protest @ Occupy KC not so long ago but then quickly forgot the cause.
Midtown Kansas City liberals talk a good game about change and hope and reform but this tax exposes one of their champions - Crystal Williams - As nothing more than a fraud doing the bidding of the corporate elite while claiming to promote a "progressive" agenda.
