TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE CONFRONTS CRITICISM OVER LUXURY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL HOLIDAY PARTY TONIGHT!!!



The Jackson County Executive is taking heat for an elite Kansas City event with luxury accommodations slated for tonight.

From TKC TIPSTERS . . . Here's the invite and a word about the gathering . . .




The holiday season kicks-off in true Jackson County-style eyebrow-raising fashion with a questionable holiday "reception" for Frank White that is being bankrolled completely by some unnamed and "anonymous benefactors". Forget for a moment that the County's ethics laws make any gift of over $100 to any County elected official illegal! The real gift is for anyone lucky enough to snag an invitation to this exclusive soiree on the Plaza. The bill for this event will weigh in at well over $20,000. It's fantastic to see the holiday season kicked-off in such grand style with one of this areas top politicians "gifting" to himself over $20,000 in perks and swag paid for, indirectly and discreetly of course, by the people of Jackson County.

The debate: Usually, even on the invite, there's info about sponsors and a lot of documentation to keep things on the up and up. Additionally, these luxury digs don't exactly reinforce the County Exec's image as a man of the people or a working-class baseball hero.

You decide . . .

Hey now, let's be fair to Frank. They did just declare that hotel blighted in order to get a tax break.

^^^Actually, it was the City Council of Kansas City. The county had no part in that.

Sad to see Frank with his hand out. He is quickly losing all of his good reputation in office.

Frank is bought and paid for by some of the same people as Sly. The only problem is that people actually respect Frank for his accomplishments and nobody has any real respect for the Mayor.

Sad to see that Frank is feeding at this same trough nowadays.

He's not a Kansas City Royal any longer. Just another crooked politician.

The city and county was dirty before Frank ever played ball.

Shut up Caleb, the adults are talking. Be seen and not heard.

The Ethics Commission does not require disclosure of who does not fund a expenditure, it requires that committees disclose who pays for expenditures.

Not Caleb said...

But I want to play dress-up and pretend that I am a political leader what should I wear? Can I give a speech? Will everyone applaud?

The bar was full of St. Louis business types a few hours ago.

You are throwing to the wrong base Frank.

I wonder how many of the sponsors of this event have business before Jackson County or hold contract business from it? My guess is that all of them do and that is why they do not have a host committee for this event.

Jefferson City lobbyist from St. Louis. Fucker is raising funds in KC in order to make payoffs on behalf of the St. Louis Chamber. Frank never should have let himself be used like Uncle Tom.

Shame on him.

They were using Frank White like am organ grinder's monkey. Pathetic. If he is going to do that shit, why doesn't he just do the Full Joe Louis and move to Vegas and shake hands at the door of a casino. I mean I remember when that guy was a leader. He could play ball. He demanded respect. He really should just quit this job and move to Las Vegas and do the sports celebrity greeter gig. The weather is better. It was sad to watch him tonight.

Talked to a member of the hotel's catering staff this morning while having a breakfast meeting. They said the bill was picked up by a lobbyist. Also they said that working with Mrs. White was impossible. One entitled rich Bitch, who would not even return a phone call or answer basic questions. At the same time she asked if she could have free use of any spa services that the hotel might offer. The bar tab was historic. The Manager on Duty was afraid that there would be auto accidents or high profile DUI arrests that would bring the hotel's name into the news. Very ugly.

Frank White needs to dump the Sanders people, which is the corrupt crew that probably came up with the idea for that reception.

Frank White needs to look long and hard in the mirror tonight. His conduct while in the Exec's job is totally disgusting to me, and I voted for him. It will amaze me if he is not in prison before he leaves this job. Unreal.

Shut up Caleb. You know this was your doing. Don't waste energy trying to blame things on others. Grow a pair and let'em drop. Resign.
