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."
