TWO YEARS AFTER HE LEFT THE JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE'S OFFICE LIKE A HOBO IN THE NIGHT: KANSAS CITY STAR ALLEGES MIKE SANDERS ENGAGED IN ILLEGAL KICKBACK SCHEME WITH DISABLED DUDE!!!
Dead-Tree media credit where it's due . . . They finally penned an interesting story about local government long after it makes much difference and based on some pretty sketchy sources . . .
Way back in the more innocent time of 2015 our TKC blog community previewed the drama surrounding Mike Sanders and reported that the Feds were circling the Courthouse AND predicted this politico was in trouble . . . All of which happened. NATCH.
Now . . . Here's the dead-tree media report which sort of explains why a baseball legend is running Jackson County and the jail into the ground . . .
Kansas City Star: Former Jackson County exec Sanders used disabled friend to run illegal kickback scheme
To be fair, its a good read and a nice look at one of the many ways political kickbacks allegedly work.
But what the implications for the public beyond a hot mess for Mike Sanders and end of his political career that stalled at the County anyhoo???
Maybe he doesn't get to appear on Ruckus any more??? After most politicos praised him for his late night hobo-like departure.
And he probably will have trouble at his big time law firm gig . . . But he was mostly serving in a minor role anyhoo.
The real news that might happen following this somewhat stale revelation . . .
NOW IS THE TIME TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE MERITS OF THE JACKSON COUNTY ROCK ISLAND CORRIDOR DEAL!!!
Give TKC credit on the above statement that regarding hundreds of thousands of dollars amid a budget crunch which will guide future policy as most people under 35-years-old have already forgotten about Mike Sanders or alleged deets of his not so glamorous political demise.
You decide . . .
