TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY ELECTION CHALLENGE FOR CONVICTED FELON BISHOP TINDALL!!!
The biggest news in Jackson County has been kept secret so far because Dead Tree Media newsies think County Exec Mike Sanders is a good guy. Sure, he's pretty nice but that's no excuse . . .
FINALLY, JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATOR BISHOP TINDALL HAS DRAWN SERIOUS ELECTION CHALLENGERS!!!
Remember a not-so-long-ago KMBC report revealed 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."
In fairness, it's clear that Bishop Tindall has a strong base of support in his community and his constituents have sent him back to office time and time again despite his legal trouble over 20-years-ago. Last year, there was an effort to ask for his felony to be expunged.
However . . .
RIGHT NOW KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS OFFER THIS EXCLUSIVE INSIGHT INTO WHAT COULD BE THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL JACKSON COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY!!!
Here's the word from the 2nd District and a ton of election questions that OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY is asking FIRST:
"An interesting race is shaping up in the 2nd District for Jackson County Legislature: its a 3-way “Democrat” show down between known felon James Tindall, Moderate Republican turned Blue Dog Democrat Zac Berkstresser, and establishment candidate and hot dog lawyer Alfred Jordan (who very likely doesn’t live where he is registered). Word on the street Tindall will be facing a petition to be removed from the ballot due to his felony conviction. Does Jordan have residency issues? He is a class of 2007 Bryan Cave Associate (making roughly $250k). What about another home he might own with his wife that may or may not be inside the district? Another election challenge perhaps? Felons, litigation, party-switchers. Great story."
We'll have more on this ongoing discussion as Democracy in Jackson County finally swings into high gear . . .
