To wit . . .
CHECK EXCLUSIVE COURTHOUSE INSIDER PERSPECTIVE ON JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATORS OUTMANEUVERING EXEC FRANK WHITE AND DEMANDING AN AUDIT!!!
It seems the newbie Exec has begun an adversarial relationship with this legislative body he excluded from initial decisions . . .
Here's the word . . .
"Recently, Frank White is learning that being County Exec is not as easy as it once looked from the free suites at Arrowhead and Kauffman. This afternoon, the Jackson County legislature voted unanimously (yes, 9-0) to completely ignore Team Frank and hire their own independent outside auditor to look into the ongoing jail fiasco that is quickly spinning completely out of control. Let's be clear, this was an historic event.
A sitting County Exec has not lost a substantive vote 9-0 in the over 45 years that they have been a charter from of government. Sure, they've lost the rare vote before, but a loss of 9-0 clearly indicates that Frank is a politician without any allies when it counts. All of this is made the more troubling for Frank by the fact that he spent the entire afternoon lobbying the legislature to simply "wait one week" before voting for their own independent auditor.
Even that apparently reasonable request was abruptly shot down by Tarwater and the others. Look for team Frank to downplay this historic and decisive loss, and continue to do anything they can to point to others to blame for a mess that is more and more solely of their own making."
