Fear Another Kansas City Housing FAIL

Not so long ago, Kansas City Housing came out of receivership from the Feds . . . Now another shameful scandal emerges. Check the deets in this EXCELLENT report from The Pitch: Blue Hills Blues: Why did four unfinished houses on the East Side cost the city $725,000?

Maximillian is also partly responsible for the stalled efforts at Monarch Village. He's somebody's son who is politically connected. With no real estate experience, construction expertise or anything else....What could possibly go wrong? Maggie May and Maxi are both part of the unskilled grifter gravy train. All aboard! That's why the Eastside looks like and is like, a third world country.

Just the latest example, as though another was needed, of local grifters getting fat on federal grant pennies-from-heaven money.
All that federal money comes from someone else, right?
Oversight and accountability from KCMO government?
ZERO.
How are the 18th and Vine crowd doing at making their millions disappear?

8:26, probably not, since you're not really a psychic, just mentally ill.

WTF! Those shacks couldn't be worth more than 80k max. Somebody should be in custody for this White collar crime.

It's Beacon Hill all over again. The City can't watch 4 houses on the East side... how in the world is it going to keep track of all the TIFs, CIDs, and other incentivized projects?

The article states that the City "tapped into" CDBG funding to make these homes a possibility. That's actally the City's go-to mechanism for all of its fraud-prone development schemes. There's a long list of "projects" fitting the City's low standard.

Reminds me of Emanuel Cleaver's "Green Zone" scam. Millions of dollars were devoted to lining the pockets of Cleaver's cronies. And the City Council wonders why the public is not foursquare behind its proposal to dump millions more into the Jazz District. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

^^^ Green Impact also used CDBG. See a trend?
