TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! AMID SKETCHY & SECRETIVE BIDDING PROCESS KANSAS CITY NEW AIRPORT SUPPORTERS FEAR FBI QUESTIONS!!!
Here's the gossip around City Hall that "journalists" will report later whilst pretending that they don't get most of their news from our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY.
To wit . . .
WORD AROUND THE CAMPFIRE IS TALK OF THE FBI ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT BIDDING HAS EVERYBODY @ 12TH & OAK FREAKED!!!
In fact, this little tidbit worked its way down to our filthy corner of the Internets because everybody is justifiably scared of getting "door-knocked" on this one.
Don't get it twisted, TKC is also TERRIFIED of the Feds as well even if the all of those free Cuban bacon sandwiches they feed the Muslims at Guantanamo Bay sound delicious. TKC doesn't want to sweat it out under the lights or anywhere else for that matter . . .
And so we'll keep this report light, breezy and full of pr0n star cleavage so the "journalists" can comfort themselves with their integrity whilst Steve Vockrodt and Dave Helling talk about everything we've already discussed HERE two weeks prior . . .
But I digress . . .
Word of tall white guys in bad suits scaring the Bejesus out of every middle-class lawyer/lobbyist in Downtown KCMO is kinda funny even if it's very serious business.
Notice that as soon as OUR KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY started talking about "bid-rigging" Mayor Sly has backed down on just about every challenge to this screwed up new airport bidding process because his bow-tie would go over horribly in the slammer. When push comes to shove Mayor Sly is a paper tiger on this no-bid vote because of so many obvious flaws favoring his corporate pals from the start.
Only Burns & Mac lobbyist Mike Talboy remains fearless in his new airport advocacy and that might be because he disguised himself as a Latino long ago and if this SKETCHY BILLION-DOLLAR REVENUE GRAB turns out badly . . . He could always hide in some South American country where they don't have extradition. Kidding . . . Talboy rarely leaves JoCo nowadays.
Nevertheless . . .
THE POINT HERE IS THAT A SECRETIVE, RUSHED AND SKETCHY PROCESS INVOLVING BILLIONS WORTH OF REVENUE HAS EVOKED VERY REAL FEAR OF INVESTIGATION.
Unless you're Prez Trump, the FBI usually doesn't comment on their targets and it has been a couple of years since local, political suits had a good scare like this one.
And so . . . Talk of the FBI, Men in Black, Mission Impossible or The Kingsmen 2: Electric Boogaloo investigating a questionable deal in the making is bound to alarm Kansas City's wretched political elite who mostly operate with reckless abandon as if nobody was watching.
You decide . . .
