TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! AS NATION REJECTS SPORTS STARS & KANSAS CITY ROYALS SUCK AGAIN: JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE STRUGGLES AGAINST POLITICAL PUSH BACK!!!
The legacy and name recognition of Jackson County Exec Frank White powered him to top job and the courthouse but hasn't given him the skill to effectively govern.
Human rights abuses at the jail continue to make headlines and encounter ongoing lawsuits and many criticize the exec's handling of the crisis.
And, just as we warned, A controversial selection without much input from the Legislature was SMACKED DOWN this week.
Here's the MSM round-up after KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY INSIDERS broke the story:
KCUR: Jackson County Legislature Rejects Executive Frank White's Pick For COMBAT
The cleaned up reports of this controversy are leaving COMBAT Deputy Director Vince Ortega out of the drama in order to set up a racial narrative . . . African-Americans Vs. Latinos fighting over a job is too unsavory for middle-class audiences. And so this is simply Exec White Vs. The Legislature. There's also a law enforcement aspect to this drama which has also been excluded . . . COMBAT works extensively with law enforcement and Exec White's pick just doesn't have any experience in this field. Finally, Frank White's pick is a KC Newbie with very few connections in any local community and that's why SMACKING DOWN THE SELECTION WAS EASY. She is not backed up by any political groups, special interests or politicos - This might work in her favor if the drama goes long enough but doesn't give anybody a reason to fight for her beyond pride at this point.
And so . . .
Finally, we're seeing that Exec Frank White can't get by on his name recognition, legacy or baseball achievement. His administration clearly dropped the ball on this one. Moreover, with the Royals struggling again . . . Fans just aren't as excited to support a former jock now that sports stars in general have been taken down a peg in the nation's discourse by Prez Trump.
You decide . . .
