Kansas City mayor threatens council members over leaks

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City's mayor has threatened to file ethics complaints against his city council colleagues if he learns they have revealed information from closed council meetings. The Kansas City Star reports that Mayor Sly James made the threat during a closed session.

Sure he wants it all hush hush so nobody can shut him down when he goes crazy.

Sly referring to ethics is high comedy, he is embarrassed that people have not been buying his blather after he was found out. The best thing would be to start over, and solicit two types of proposals. Watch Sly try and make an onerous gauntlet for anyone but Burns and Mac. Council we will make sure you have some interesting information to help bring rigor to the process.

Don't you love how they say everything is transparent then go and enforce the opposite.

Sounds like the Donald getting all worried and embarrassed about leaks and such, the chamber to be sure will not be as inclined to allow his rushed sneak attack.

Is sLIE James International Airport getting scared? What will the bullhorn do next? He just recently showed his racist side when he walked out at the announcement of the new chief. Will the general attorney of Missouri get involved..... stay tuned folks this could get interesting especially if the guvner gets involved which I hear through the bat channel is possible! We can only hope!

GOOD LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sly James threatening Council members with ethics complaint? What kind of TWISTED, POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK, VOODOO style of professional public representation is that?

Other than a larger bully pulpit because he's Mayor, James has NO MORE power or authority than any other Council member. The fact that at least of few of them have figured that out, means members like Loar, Hall, Shields, and Lucas can steer this city in the right direction and away from the jagged rocks which James, Justus, and Schulte are determined to crash against.

Ethics complaints and FBI referrals should have already been made against James, Schulte, and Justus when they colluded in secret with Burns and McDonnell management to hand the company a no-bid, open-ended dream contract giveaway worth millions of dollars. James and Justus are after more campaign cash, and I can only imagine Schulte is angling for a lucrative consulting contract with the company after he can retire from KCMO with a fat pension.

For years and years, KCMO residents have rated AIRPORT satisfaction at or near the top of all city services on the annual Citizen Satisfaction Survey. So what does James, Schulte, and Justus want to do? Tear it down! Why? Because they want to reward their corporate paymaster with a HUGE engineering/construction project.

In the same annual Citizen Satisfaction Survey, what do residents rate as the services most in need of improvement? Basic maintenance of streets, sidewalks, bridges, etc. Basic maintenance which KCMO has deferred for year after year because they're too busy giving away tax money to wealthy developers from Kansas, and chasing after unnecessary pet projects! Because Mayor James doesn't have the strategic intelligence, and Schulte doesn't have the balls to do the right thing for taxpayers, KCMO is sinking ever deeper into the hole of insolvency. If not for the scare tactics, and outright lying concerning the recent G.O. bonds vote on property tax increases, KCMO would be almost on the brink by now.

Everyone knows the committee evaluating airport terminal proposals consists almost entirely of folks who decided long ago to hand a blank check to Burns and McDonnell. There is virtually ZERO chance that any proposal other than Burns and McDonnell will be given serious consideration, though I'm sure they'll publicly state it was an extremely close call. Call it public relations theater. I hope the other proposers file suit against KCMO and those named above who have acted in collusion on this matter.

With his enthusiastic support for Hillary, all the while hoping to get a job in her administration in Washington.
And then his disappointment that Greitens won the Missouri gubernatorial election, Sly has pretty well burned his bridges to higher level political jurisdictions, much to the detriment of KCMO residents getting any special help from the feds or Jeff City.
But now, with his bullying, secrecy, and political ineptness on view for all to see, it looks like he might be trying for a spot in Venezuela.
Chaos, financial collapse, dictatorship, government shenanigans...
He'd fit right in!

Tracy Thomas said...

7:23, AMEN.

Sly James is Kim Jung Il.
What's next?
After dissident Council members come down with mysterious maladies or disappear, does he lock the rest up in the Tower of London, aka Jackson County Jail??

Then aim missiles from Indian Creek at Leawood?

Sly is out of control.

Take him serious if he leaks you'll need 5hazmat teams.

Since you live in Johnson County, Tracy, your remarks would not be considered relevant.

Tracy Thomas said...

Hey 5:30--
well at least I am a HOMEOWNER!
I'm just a gal who is a crime refugee from Karnes Blve and my office at 31st and Main.

Whereas, Sly James rents on Union Hill.
Perfect plan, like Sen. Pat Roberts renting a Barcalounger in western Kansas.
Just one problem--
Hillary lost.
Sly will not be getting any appointments to the Slush Fund Admin.

I guess there is another problem: Cleaver is not retiring.

Oh yeah, 5:30--I have the courage to sign my name.
Whereas you are an Anonymous coward.
So actually, YOUR remarks are irrelevant.

Mayor Bullhorn has now demanded secrecy on all his crimes and wants a presidential pardon from the Donald. Sly passes gas and tells the council it is air freshener. All the Wizards behind the curtain are leaving sly in front of the public naked, and it isn't pretty

agentzero said...

Sometimes it seems Sly is the disposable booster to take heat off Schulte. Schulte should be assigned to airport toilet duty. If you like the fix just ask for more local control so the clown show can scale up the rig setting game- glad the star zeroed in on that priority while rubber stamping every citizen offending mess. Remember local control means special interest and Bullhorn control
