TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC PARTY POLITICOS COMPLAIN: JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE ISN'T A TEAM PLAYER!!!



As we slouch toward the August primary and then onto the toughest part of election season, there's just a bit of Democratic Party infighting regarding support from a Kansas City baseball legend turned politico.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS EXCLUSIVE KANSAS CITY POLITICAL INSIDER TESTIMONY RAGING AGAINST COUNTY EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE FOR HIS LACK OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY SUPPORT!!!

The deets confirm previous reporting that Truman Days/Gala had a tough time this year and here's one perspective on the drama.

Take a look at just a bit of political hateration of Exec Frank White by way of his newfound colleagues:

Insiders rage against Frank White's selfish fundraising . . .



"It makes no sense that a politician with no opponent would be shaking down the local labor community for campaign cash when so many Democrats are desperately trying to raise enough money to be competitive in November. Every dollar he raises today he doesn't really need, and would otherwise go to candidates looking to win in November. It is an act of extreme selfishness by a politician who is only looking out for himself, and clearly isn't invested in anyone or anything else on he ballot (including, by the way, the county car tax that he helped put on the ballot).

"Historically, the County Executive is the titular head of the Democratic Party in the KC area and, until Frank, has always worked hard to help other candidates and the party be successful. The first eyebrow raising moment was when Frank refused to HELP MUCH AT ALL with this year's annual Truman Days, the preeminent Democratic political event in this region. Since before the Kennedy administration, this event was always bankrolled by the executive for the benefit of the local party and politicians. This is a grim harbinger of what may be to come in local Democratic politics as, for the first time in history, one of this area's premier political offices is now occupied by someone who is only focused on themselves and that leaves a clear and historic vacuum of power."

You decide . . .

You should be fair. All politicians are out mostly for themselves.

The difference between Frank and the rest of the Kansas City Democrats is simple:

He doesn't need them and they know it.

The danger for Frank is that they're going to pick apart his legend piece by piece and try to make people forget that he ever picked up a baseball glove.

Disagree only with this: Frank at least showed up to the Gala.

Where was Sly? The mayor is stumping for Hillary and has certainly made one trip after the next to the white house but other than Hensley, he hasn't offered much support at all.

And all of his help comes with a huge price tag of favors and more. That's the real guy to focus on Tk, Sly is way more selfish than Frank.

Jackson County needs Trump!

What are his views on unsolicited bulk email?

Frank is just another political errand boy. This town is full of them, they don't need to anything but do what they're told.

Frank might not need the money, but I am sure the Democratic Party will love every dime he can raise.

Truth is said...

What Black man you know is a team player? The incidence of single parenthood among black families is extremely high. If they dont care about their family, being honest or engaged in their children's lives, then its impossible to assume that they are or can be team players. Sly James and every other black politician I know are fucking unbearable when they get to public office. They'd turn on themselves and often do.

White's following Hilly's playbook. Look at how the Bern got burned (other Dems as well) by "Hillary Victory Fund". Politico, The Atlantic, NPR, Washington FreeBeacon, lawnewz.com, nakedcapitalism, berniesanders.com AND MORE expose the fundraising schemes that favored Clinton. Bernie, and others, deemed HVF as money laundering. Wikileaks exposed more recent emails to further that charge.

Hey, maybe Frank will share a measly 1% of his take like Hillary.

Sharing sucks. I go to work every day and have to share my money with a bunch of lazy fucking entitlement coons. If I don't I'm a RAYSHITZ Fuck them.

^^^ Dont make coons the issue, the majority of people on welfare are white.

According to 2013 data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the program, 40.2 percent of SNAP recipients are white, 25.7 percent are black, 10.3 percent are Hispanic, 2.1 percent are Asian and 1.2 percent are Native American.Feb 28, 2015

Dont bother with facts though. They get in the way of justfying your hatred for black people.

What do you have to say about your worthless, lazy fucking entitlement White Klan members?

If you dont pay your taxes, you're not racists, you're an unAmerican, deadbeat anarchist.

Maybe he's looking out for himself for the future and the dems having difficulty raising money because NOBODY WANTS THEM in office.......

Ha! Bringing up the Huffington Post in any discussion of fact. :)

The dems must think that because he's black they're entitled to his support.

hmm, maybe there's a record of this in the latest wikileaks of the DNC's emails: https://wikileaks.org/dnc-emails/

While all this bush league drama and intrigue is going on, who's paying any attention to the basics that the county government is supposed to be providing residents?
Like running the jail.
Like professionally assessing property and collecting and distributing taxes?
Like providing oversight to the numerous no-bid contracts and jobs for family and friends?
Only the names change.

Remember that the first official act of Frank's was to get his unemployed son a sweetheart no-show 6 figure job at the KCATA. Frank had JUST appointed members to the board and VOILA! His dirtbag son gets a sweet gig on the taxpayer dime! He's just like the rest of politicians.

The libtards finally find a black guy who will work and get his own money and the chicken shits start acting like coons and think they are entitled. Fuck those white left wing clown coon wannabes. Raise your own campaign money or go back to being a next to nothing con man.

11:54 - god, you're a stupid mother fucker. According to the most recent U.S. Census, non-Hispanic Whites are 63% of the population (compared to your 40% of SNAP recipients). Blacks are 12% of the U.S. population (compared to your 26% of SNAP recipients). Note the difference, moron?

I have met Frank White several times. He is his own guy and like another commenter mentioned, he doesn't need the machine to do what he wants.

I like the guy and think his independent take on issues will add something positive (I hope) to the local conversation.

Dude is very charismatic and straight talking.

In defense of Mark Funkhouser, never got any of his siblings a job in Kansas City. For those of you educated in KCPS, Hickman Mills SD, SM North or UMKC, sibling is a person's brother or sister.

11:25 and 11:54 here's another factoid--loads of young military families (all races) avail state food programs and other welfare. Entry ranks for many enlisteds are poverty wages, sadly. I learned this while volunteering at a base and a Catholic Charities location in Kansas.

In 2008, in interviews and stump speeches, Obama claimed his mother got food stamps after his dad left them and returned to Kenya. It's in his (Ayers?) 1995 book, "Dreams From My Father". Another "bad dad" situation like Charles Barkley scolds those of "non-support" parents in black families, perhaps?

Michelle said her family received food stamps while she spoke on a campaign stop 4/16/08 in Evansville,IN. Some dispute this, since her dad was a $50,000+ per year (during the 1970s) union pump operator while Mrs. Robinson worked at Spiegel Catalogue. Uh, is this a variant on a "sniper fire" tale?

Those whites on welfare stats are a smaller proportion of the total white population, as compared to others. A yuuuuge refugee wave from Syria could up the white count on the roles. Naww, Kaine's got enough carpenter and welding training slots for 'em all.

Simple! A coon by any other name is still a coon.

I wonder if Frank has goobernatorial aspirations.

Were I to out stretch my limbs in an superimposed hallucination guided by my deepest need to define a winner and I have. The time grips my throat and gasps not to bellow but whisper this to none who really gives a shit...produce unconsciousness you you perplexed phenomena. You can't make a computer feel so why me either way? So you say? I just want a sane sound debate. Is that so wrong?

Yeah I thought he was a republican

He's a shill and a paid for token. He doesn't have a party, he'll take whatever he can get. He's running as a Democrat but that doesn't stay much.
