TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! FRANK WHITE SUPPORTERS STILL BELIEVE BASEBALL LEGACY WILL DISTRACT VOTERS FROM JACKSON COUNTY JAIL CRISIS!!!
There is a human rights crisis in Jackson County BUT cheerleaders for the politico in charge believe that his long-ago baseball contribution to Kansas City have made him so beloved that locals won't mind the ongoing damage this crisis is causing (and costing) local government.
Polling from the recent GO Bond election asked voters about their impressions of JaxCo Exec Frank White and most of them ranked him as the most popular elected official in Kansas City behind Mayor Sly James. Mainstream political wisdom among the KC elite (don't laugh) translates info to mean that the County Exec is nearly untouchable.
And so we ask our blog community for a more objective analysis . . .
HAS JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE'S POPULARITY TAKEN A HIT FROM THE JACKSON COUNTY JAIL CRISIS???
Before our readers decide, let's review:
A horrific story of a woman raped and an ensuing lawsuit started the crisis . . .
Don't forget that a man was allegedly raped and his lawsuit describes illicit behavior from guards.
There has been raw sewage and toilet overflow in the cell blocks which has caused lawsuits.
The feds just raided the jail.
And even after that, two female guards were attacked and injured on the job.
Even worse, these stories don't look like they're going to stop anytime soon as the news from the jail keeps getting worse and maybe more important than local sports legends.
You decide . . .
