TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! EPIC AND EXPENSIVE ETHICS BATTLE CONFRONTS JACKSON COUNTY TODAY!!!
A united Jackson County Legislature is ready to make the next move against embattled Executive Frank White in order to cut off his money supply and render him powerless.
Of course, this weekend a judge's ruling declared that Exec Frank White can't touch COMBAT anti-drug tax funds for the moment.
And now . . .
THE COUNTY WILL DEBATE ETHICS LEGISLATION THAT NOT ONLY CUTS MORE COURTHOUSE PURSE STRINGS FOR EXEC FRANK WHITE BUT ALSO THREATENS HIS TENURE MOVING FORWARD!!!
I'll spare readers the civics lesson but the "perfected" and pending legislation basically covers payments and benefit to County denizens and it threatens to not only make life harder for Team Frank but also put their tenure to rest before an upcoming election.
Real talk . . .
TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS: BEHIND THE SCENES COURTHOUSE INSIDERS ARE TALKING ABOUT EXEC FRANK WHITE REPRIMAND AND REMOVAL FROM OFFICE!!!
As this court fight proceeds, this is an option we're going to hear about more and more . . .
Nevertheless, as we gear up for this fight, here's another more detailed look at the price tag:
Already, there's a rush resolution transferring $61,000.00 within the 2018 General Fund to cover the cost of outside legal counsel to serve as municipal court prosecutor for use by the County Counselor's Office.
But it gets worse . . .

Also on the agenda today . . .
A RESOLUTION transferring $255,000.00 within the 2018 Health Fund, $22,298.00 within the 2018 Park Fund, $234,232.00 within the 2018 Special Road and Bridge Fund, and $100,000.00 within the 2018 Assessment Fund to partially cover the cost of legal services and related expenses for use by the County Counselor's Office.
And yes, the end note here, as always, is that taxpayers are left paying this bill to resolve a political impasse and decide a contentious Courthouse battle.
