TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY INSIDER WARNING: BISHOP TINDALL COULD SOON MEET WITH FELONY AND ELECTION CHALLENGE!!!
The topic of felony election status has been a long-contested insider topic in Jackson County.
Across Missouri, legislation that says felons can't hold elected office has been enforced more frequently as of late . . . In Jackson County, not so much.
Insiders with a great deal of knowledge inform us that it's a charter class issue that protects Bishop Tindall from any problems on this topic.
Remember a not-so-long-ago KMBC report revealing that:
"County Legislator James Tindall has a felony conviction . . . Tindall was convicted in federal court for falsifying his 1992 income tax return. Tindall, who had at the time stepped down as a legislator, was found not guilty of taking bribes. He returned to the county Legislature in 2007."
Some say that it's simply a lack of political will from Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker that leaves this issue unresolved.
To wit . . .
THE EFFORT TO CHALLENGE BISHOP TINDALL LEGALLY AND AT THE BALLOT BOX MIGHT SOON BE UNDERWAY!!!
Word is the legal challenge could come soon and that would pave the way for another candidate to swoop in at the last moment.
Alternative perspective on this topic . . . Let's not forget that Bishop Tindall has an exceptionally loyal constituency who repeatedly send him back to office year after year. This legal challenge might not go over well against a voting district that has OBVIOUSLY FORGIVEN Bishop Tindall for any past transgressions.
Without question . . . The shakeup could CLEARLY have significant racial and political implications.
