TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE'S OFFICE WASTES $25K SO FAR IN 2018 AMID STRUGGLE TO KEEP CONTROL OF COMBAT ANTI-CRIME FUNDS!!!



The price-tag of the power struggle over COMBAT is quickly adding up.

In a recent County meeting Legislators revealed . . .

- According to the Legislature speaking in open session - A high-priced GOP law firm has been paid $25K to issue their opinion in favor of Exec White keeping control of COMBAT.

- This same law firm has garnered about $250K worth of JaxCo legal work in less than a year.

- The Legislature is now hoping to cut ties with the firm and seek their own representation in the upcoming legal battle with Exec Frank White.



Remember that on Wednesday Courthouse tensions reached a fever pitch as OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY BROKE FIRST NEWS of an employee suspended for refusing to follow an "unlawful" directive from Exec Frank White's office. A coalition of Jackson County government officials then issued a groundbreaking statement against the action.

Brief aside on that . . . Today a FAILING dead-dree media outlet reported that "deputies were called to restore calm" and there's absolutely no evidence of that . . . Video of the session proves as much. Sheriff's deputies typically attend meetings of the Legislature to provide security - Sure, there was a ruckus and some yelling but no one had to be restrained or even close. TKC loves hyperbole but it's almost kinda sad to see local hacks stoop lower than a blogger without having nearly half as much fun. But I digress . . .

Anyhoo . . .

The point here is that negotiations have fallen apart and this debate will be settled in court . . . Just as our blog community reported . . . The bills taxpayers will ultimately suffer for this fight have ALREADY pass a quarter million dollars.

Somebody tell Caleb to stop feeding the trolls at the Star. They're not helping him. They can barely help themselves.

Half a million is just the tip of the iceberg. Frank and Caleb are bleeding the county dry with their sideshow and it's pretty disgusting. I would've thought he would do a lot better in office. Didn't expect such a circus.

Why is it that Caleb Clifford want to throw public money at Nazi groups? According to the email that the County sent out about the opinion, this lawyer is tied to THE FEDERALIST SOCIETY that opposes a woman's right to choose what to do with her body, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and other progressive legislation. The group supports Kris Kobach and the Klan. The group opposes immigration by those with Brown skin. Why do you not report that Tony? Combat money to MOM?

I have a theory that Caleb might be a mole for the GOP. They want to bring down Frank from the inside and replace him with a Republican.

It's the only thing that explains this stupidity.

He pays Miriam Hennosy to make sure the queers do not turn on him.
Its a pay off system. There are plenty of good Catholics who to do that job.

Caleb only recommends Republican outside counsel. He is probably a plant. He is pushing an Ashcroft attorney now who opposes women's rights, so where is Crystal Williams?

Frank White is retarded. He hired an asshole named Caleb, and that tells us everything we need to know.

Frank White lives up to the stereotype of every upwardly mobile jig. He keeps a skinny white lady at work and a fat black lady at home. His wife is a drunk who dribbles word vomit at every event he take he to. His woman at work just provides tramp blow jobs.

All of you dweebs still aren't going to find a candidate who can beat Frank.

Sorry.

^^^ 5:05 Forget re-election in November. Frank White isn't going to make it to spring at this rate before he is up to his bulging eyeballs in legal trouble for misappropriation of funds.

That $250k could have paid Franks mortgage off.

Man, we really need to stop putting dip-shit celebrities in charge of government.

4:17 Frank was a Republican til he ran for the county legislature.

Tony, can you actually read? The Star article said the Sheriff was called to the finance department this week, not on Monday at the session in Independence. I don’t think they film the employees at work, so it would not be “on tape” but you never know.

Jackson County needs a fed takeover, STAT.

657, FTW! JACOMO is so obsessed with anything sports related that the thought of having a former Royal in office gives them a stiffy. Until, of course, shit like this starts happening, making them realize that characters like Frank White should stick with ribbon cuttings.

@ 6:12 Hmm. Maybe it was Graves' law firm that bailed Frank out and now he's funneling county money to the firm as payback.

There goes the money for the Forth of July fireworks.

At this point I'd vote for a small sack of dog shit over Frank White, who has proven to be a giant sack of bullshit.
