TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COURTHOUSE INSIDERS DON'T EXPECT JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE TO FINISH 2019 IN OFFICE!!!



The County Exec is confronting criticism and push back from all sides.

A newspaper dude who sleeps through most public meetings has been mouthing off and dredging old stuff TV news has already covered and now the Legislature is calling him out in public over the mostly old news.

Accordingly . . .

COURTHOUSE INSIDERS THINK THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR THE FRANK WHITE ADMINISTRATION!!!

Two reasons in particular . . .

- The Legislature calling out this report is really a signal that they don't trust the County Exec as a partner in the move toward a new jail. That's unfortunate because it's going to take a united front to get a project going forward and that doesn't seem close to happening.

- Elected officials in Jackson County & The newspaper are pretty good about smelling blood in the water. Exec Frank White's personal financial turmoil along with more questions about the transfer of Courthouse funds have Team Frank on their heels.

Like it or not, without a great deal of luck & fence mending . . . The consensus is that the Exec is threatened by untenable circumstances.

Think about this for a second TKC. Frank is actually a hold over from teh Mike Sanders days. He was hand picked by Sanders and has many of the same backers. IF, and that's a big if, he doesn't finish the year then that's actually good news for voters who would like a fresh start.

Time for term limits and more public info on the audit. That's the only thing that's really going to clean up the county.

Please Sly, take Frank with you!

Frank's inaction on the jail would get anyone else fired. All of the studies and meetings are overblown and very suspicious. Everyone knows the facility is decrepit and needs to be replaced. The studies are complete. NOW it's time to do something about it. Firing Frank is just going to take more time, the Legislature would be wise to just start moving forward without him.

In Jackson County and KCMO, why is it that after clearly incompetent people are put in positions of responsibility and authority, everyone acts surprised that their performance turns out to be a disaster?
White was baseball player and a local minor "celebrity".
Sly was/is an ambulance-chasing attorney.
Justus belongs to at least two "victimized" groups.
Forte's performance as KCPD chief was there for all to see.
Governing is hard work, and the taxpaying-public either benefits from or is stuck with the expensive results for decades.
It never changes.
And it should never come as a surprise.

He can't be gone fast enough. It was over two years ago that a consultant called the jail one of the worst in the nation. Frank said "stuff happens in a jail." Last year, he stold from the combat fund to keep paying his cronies and fired a county employee who would not sign off on the illegal activity. Now we're finding out about this other consultant report Frank and his team doctored. Then there's his super secret deals to avoid foreclosure and the $50 million Rock Island scam. I hope this "old news" keeps getting reported on until the feds or new attorney general indicts Frank.

6:22 I know it's old news, but Forte collecting a half million dollars in "overtime pay" as police chief should have made him too toxic to get anywhere near another public sector job. Then Frank White and the Dim-o-rats gifted him the sheriff's badge.

Frank White, Chief Forte, Sly James, Quinton Lucas, Jermaine Reed, millions and millions to 18th and Vine, and an east side that is out of control.

I don't consider any if this old news until someone pays a price for the wrong doing. Until F-Up Frank is no longer collecting checks that my taxes are paying for I hope this crap keeps getting dredged up over and over again.

Theresa Galvin is an idoit if she ever believed a word that comes out of Caleb Clifford's mouth. Frank White has surrounded himself with snakes and skunks at the courthouse.

Hey your insiders are always wrong anyway, no reason why they won't be here.

Frank White doesn't want to talk about the past unless it's his baseball career. Less than a year after a woman is raped in the jail, he brushes it off as "old news" when that's mentioned in a public meeting. He still won't tell us who financed his mortgage bail out in a deal Slimmy Mike Sanders brokered because that's "private." He now wants to say this manipulation of a report WE PAID $280K for is already old news too. I hope this old news leads to some good news soon, Frank's removal.

Legislators need to get their heads out of their backsides. The moment they approved a budget that keeps paying for Team Frank it was going to be back to business as usual. Lies, deceit and corruption.

So Frank White wants to open a new jail that wouldn't hold any more inmates than the old one? In all these reports no one has pointed out the current jail was overcrowded the very day it opened over 30 years ago?

Not enough is being made of inmates arranging murders while in that jail. Innocent people have been killed because of the corruption or incompetence of the people responsible for running the jail. That blood is on their hands.

How many more homosexual rapes have happened in that jail since he came around? Are they still having issues with doors being unlocked and the rape bathroom? Do you need to be a Somali in order to be hired there? How’s that KCMO sewer backup into the toilets working out? Lmao what a shit hole

There should be no let's just put this behind us and move on until Frank fires the aides responsible. It is time one of his cronies paid a price and we stop paying their fat salaries.

7:24 To answer your third question, yes. You can read all about the diversity of the jail staff on the county website. What you can't read about on the website is the consultant jail reports or the grand jury report about the jail.

What are you drinking so early in the morning, 7:33? This is Team Frank. Don't do something illegal and get fired. Falsify a report about an inmate's death in the jail and get promoted.

Show me one black political person in this lousy city who has ever done anything right and for all people while in office?

Frank White, Sly James, Quinton Lucas, Jermaine Reed, millions and millions to 18th and Vine, and an east side that is out of control. These folks control the council and have their own agenda which does not represent all of the City, only their small group of folks.

Okay which construction company(s) is bribing and paying people off behind these walls and doors here?

KCMO Construction Industry Mafia said...

We need a new jail building. The current building is blighted and in disrepair, and can be converted into luxury apartments and condo's with subsidies. Why don't you ignorant rubes understand that?

I think it’s hilarious that Bazookas Showgirls is on the street car route. Cmon kids, daddy wants to take you on a street car ride to show you where he goes when mommy is angry!

Why not just rename the street Felony Lane in front of City Hall.

There is a big time flaw in the system where unqualified people get elected to positions of authority.
