TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! TOLD YOU SO: EMBATTLED JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE SMACKED DOWN OVER CONTROVERSIAL COMBAT SELECTION!!!



This afternoon the political career of a former Kansas City baseball star took a serious hit.

Our blog community already knows the deal here . . .

Law enforcement, the Latino Community and legislators wanted Vince Ortega to lead COMBAT anti-crime and community outreach efforts. Exec Frank White's selection was met with curiosity and immediate opposition.



Behind the scenes . . .

THIS IS THE MOST SERIOUS SMACK DOWN THE JACKSON COUNTY EXEC HAS TAKEN AND REVEALS THAT HIS NEWBIE POLITICAL CAREER IS A WASHOUT!!!

A quote from an insider on the topic:

"This is the second strike for Exec White. The jail mess put him at a disadvantage and now a simple appointment encountering this much resistance shows us that he really doesn't really know what he's doing and he CANNOT govern effectively. Sadly, his name recognition doesn't give him the skill to do the job."

More inside baseball . . .



This FAIL is being blamed on his Chief of Staff who reportedly didn't run the selection by other legislators and counted on Exec White's popularity to push the decision forward/ Overextending on behalf of a political newcomer without much community support was seen as arrogance from Exec White's office.



Here is the official press statement just released as the Jackson County Exec could be one and done AND community crime-fighting efforts turn into a political battle royale.

Take a look:

Jackson County Executive issues statement after disappointing no vote on COMBAT Director by Legislature


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. has issued the following statement after today’s Legislative vote rescinding his appointment for COMBAT Director.

“Teesha Miller is an exceptionally qualified individual for COMBAT Director and I am proud to select her as my appointment to the position. It is unfortunate that she was blatantly dismissed at today’s Jackson County Legislative meeting and denied the chance to speak for herself, explaining her professional experience, commitment and vision for COMBAT. I am also disheartened that Teesha’s professional peers, who showed up to speak on her behalf, were also denied that chance. Despite repeated praise for Teesha’s work and character, the fact that the Legislature voted to fire her without taking the time to hear from her directly, is absurd.”

“The Charter states that the County Executive has the authority to make this appointment and I am confident that I made the strongest decision for the health and safety of our County’s future. I took this job to do what’s right, not bend to the same political pressure that has become the norm for Jackson County. Based on today’s vote, we will review our options, but we will not allow this to deter us. We will continue to move forward to make this community safer.”

Why can't Frank get along with the legislature.

He's supposed to be a team player.

Real shame here. Had hoped better for him.

This Sucks.

Frank should have stayed on the legislature. He is literally out of his league.

You want to know the real deal here Tony, he wasn't involved in this decision AT ALL.

Until now.

You people don't understand at all. She has to get the job because Frank is banging her.

^^^ B.S. Out of the loop suburbanite.

This was a payback that didn't go wrong. Frank has ZERO input in the decision.

Btw, you Johnson County people should look in your own backyard, there is A LOT of dirt to be found there. You just don't see it.

Caleb Clifford did not even come back from a "business trip" to help Frank out of the mess he made for him.

Oh yes, it is Frank's fault, just as long as he keeps Caleb around screwing things up.

Well at least 709 did not blame it all on the kid.

Well she's certainly qualified for office judging from those tweets

In other news outside the KCMO Bubble Anthony Weiner got a stiff dose of reality Monday as a judge slapped him with a nearly two-year sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl.

Weiner didn’t stop crying until after court officers had cleared the room.

Why weren't any public meetings held as part of the hiring process? Let the public that pays the taxes to fund COMBAT get a look at and hear from the candidates to direct COMBAT.

The public ought to be given a chance to see the qualifications of all the directors working under Frank White. I doubt he's hiring the best, and we taxpayers get stuck paying second-rate people's high salaries.

I'd like to know if a county employee wrote that statement for Frank. It's a blatant political statement, not something anyone being paid by county taxes should have been writing, attacking other county elected officials.

Frank hasn't made a good hire since becoming County Executive. He blew it right out of the gate hiring Caleb Clifford. Now this, after trying to get the sheriff removed from office.

Because the gave voting privileges to feral cats.

Teesha certainly is unqualified. I wonder if Frank is the only one banging her. Maybe Caleb fucks her too

Caleb calls all the shots. So far, his track record hasn't been going too well, especially with the jail scandals and lawsuits. Stay tuned.

The Legislators stood up to Frank? I'll believe it when I see it. Anyone got this on video?

Anonymous said...

Frank doesn't know what he's doing he just wants a long epitaph with all he has done while on this earth.

I say get someone in that can run things and goodbye Frank White.

Frank is just embarrassing himself. Sad to see him making a fool of himself.

Anonymous said...

Did Frank really say private citizens shouldn't have any say in who gets to run this program spending millions of taxpayer dollars? He also went on a rant about not being respected. He doesn't respect the citizens one bit. He is an angry ass.

Sounds just like Trump. Great

Oh yeah I could see gettin all up in that Teesha...I bet she is one juicy black beary.

Now how could she waste any more than the others before her and how could she craft out more than those before her and how could she fuck up COMBAT more than the Legislators.

You let Jaco and Kc become planet of the apes and now complain when a nice looking chocolate delights gets and office she could not possibly fuck up more than the County Leg has already done.

You won't give Trump a chance but shit man cain't you lease give da sista a chance.

I love it you complain about her and have an all black fucked up water department.

I would make that Ebony Luscious Lady head of any department she wanted if she was my woman.

You all be haters and white supremacists and white privilege and neo knuckle head nazis and KKK and white power skin heads and honkies. I almost forgot...and racists.

Now that will back your white asses off in a second. We calls you racist and you hunker down like a dog lickin his nuts.

Every time an lib from Jackson County talks about Trump being obviously unqualified I want them to explain why they voted for Frank White.

Kind of a bitch that if the county government ceased to exist tomorrow about the only thing we would see from it is a huge tax break.

Caleb undermined Big Dummy Number 20 and it does involve fucking. No, it is not Frank's girlfriend that is testing the nepotism rules here, but Caleb's girlfriend. Gina Robinson of the Prosecutor's Department is Caleb's choice for the COMBAT job and she happens to do several jobs for Caleb.

Still gotta say that is one fine black woman. I would have appointed her myself and begged like a dawg for some.

The real issue at hand is the fact the taxpayers in Jackson County continue to fund this worthless program that has ZERO impact on crime and exists only the pay Combat employees and other grifters. Wake Up!!!!
