FRIDAY FACE-OFF: LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL WILLIAMS VS. EXEC FRANK WHITE AS JACKSON COUNTY JAIL CRISIS WORSENS!!!



Election season in Jackson County is coming up sooner than most people think and politicos at the Courthouse are desperate to distance themselves from the human rights crisis at the jail that's far worse than most political drama.

In a recent podcast interview, Crystal Williams was more than willing to admit that she was pretty much powerless as a legislator and the jail hot mess was solely the fault of Exec Frank White. She talked about his power over the budget but failed to mention that legislators can always vote to amend or propose legislation of their own . . . So far the Legislature hasn't done much but complain.

But more important than legislative moves is a question of optics:

IS IT WISE FOR LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL WILLIAMS TO TAKE ON JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE???

The attacks from Legislator Dan Tarwater seem more calculated as he has one last chance to run for the big chair . . . But Crystal Williams ranting is a different story. While Exec White's popularity has taken a hit, he'll always be more beloved that this high ranking Hillary Clinton campaigner even if the jail goes up in flames . . . Which seems more likely with every passing day.

What did Frank do with all the money he made playing ball? Seriously, the guy is a hot mess, and obviously desperate for dough. I'd feel sorry for him, but he is simply too big of a basket case to help.

Check that KMBZ link. Frank watched a baseball game instead of going to a meeting about the jail. That's not exactly inspiring.

Wow he is watching baseball while the jail burns kinda like Nero. He needs to focus or resign

Frank brushed off a horrible case of a woman being raped in that hell of a jail he is running as "old news." He lost my vote right then and there. Should have been national news and put enough heat on him to force a resignation. Guy is a disgrace.

Jail is just the most obvious problem at Jackson County. Voters need to fire Frank. Royals were so smart to never put him in charge.

3:58 Frank must need the money. He must need the county ex's pay. He just doesn't want to do the work.

So Frank is popular ex-jock, like that somehow qualifies him to be the county’s CEO.

Pretty sure Frank White isn't the first darkie that Crystal has "taken on".......if you know what I mean.

Just looking at those two photos tells you all you want and need to know about government in Jackson County.
The whole lot of them couldn't manage a two-car garage.
What a waste of money!

At least Crystal doesn't have a full-time photographer running around taking pictures of her at the taxpayers expense.

7:09 you mean they both couldn't run a car wash together.
