TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COURTHOUSE INSIDERS: NEW LEADERSHIP TEAM FOR JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE STRIKES OUT AMID ONGOING JAIL SEX ASSAULT CRISIS!!!
While the consequences of the ongoing rape crisis at the Jackson County Jail will unfold over the coming weeks and years, reaction to the role that leadership has played in this mess has been swift and unforgiving.
To wit . . .
FACING HIS FIRST MAJOR CRISIS, JACKSON COUNTY INSIDERS CLAIM EXEC FRANK WHITE AND HIS LEADERSHIP TEAM DROPPED THE BALL AMID A TRAGIC RAPE CHARGE THAT COULD COST TAXPAYERS MILLIONS!!!
Like it or not, the beloved former baseball dude isn't getting a pass amid reports that some poor woman was raped inside jail as she confronted a simple misdemeanor ticket charge.
Here's a more detailed analysis from our blog community that gets really specific and places the blame squarely on Frank and his new advisers with a nod to insiders who know the tall white guy to which this comment refers.
Check this courthouse dude crying foul:
"Over the last several weeks I've spoken with MANY long-term county employees and they all, eerily, are saying the same thing: The county under Frank White has become a very dark place, where employees now live in constant fear of losing their jobs so that they can be replaced by "loyal soldiers' of Team Frank. The new administration seems to value unwavering political "loyalty" over anything and everything else. To a person they feel paralyzed from doing their jobs as the new "management style" is to lead through fear of failure, not by rewarding positive results. Much of the blame for this is placed with the new set of advisers for Exec Frank White, nearly overnight, changed the culture at the courthouse into a House of Cards style game of intrigue, deceit and backstabbing. However, Frank is the man in charge and seems outwardly thrilled with the demeaning style of his leadership team. The recent jail debacle is a sign of the times and things to come as the lights slowly go out at the county and it descends back to what it has always historically been: The cesspool of local government."
In the final analysis, this Insider notes that "the place is simply falling apart. And people are beginning to doubt the sincerity of team Frank."
