TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! TOLD YOU SO!!! KICK-ASS TIPSTER REPORT CONFIRMED: DISGRACED FORMER JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE SANDERS TO PLEAD GUILTY IN FEDERAL COURT!!!
And so the saga of a formerly great career is soon to be complete . . .
We talked about the final steps in a Jackson County downfall yesterday afternoon and now it's Kansas City news FACT. . .
To wit . . .
SPECIAL THANKS TO KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS FOR OFFERING A SNEAK PEAK OF SKIPPY'S LAST STAND!!!
Here's terrestrial radio playing catch-up to our blog community:
KMBZ: Former Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders to plead guilty in federal court
Former county executive Mike Sanders and his chief of staff Calvin Williford were implicated in a case involving misappropriation of campaign funds. The FBI had been investigating Sanders for several years. He allegedly skimmed money from campaign accounts he controlled after paying a longtime friend for consulting work that was not done.
Over months and years this drama played out and was the subject of some nasty local debate, cheese-ball stories, apologist chatter . . . The politico was even a regular guest on Public TV.
For TKC, the low point of this story was a late night resignation and local pundits actually going on TV and saying what a great job the guy did as he scampered out of office like a hobo in the night.
And so, the radio confirms that Friday will finish off another Democratic Party political career that went to 12th & Oak to die.
