Wherever the office is located, the employees with any sense at all and certainly with any school age children will locate in Johnson County.
Then, if the office is in KCMO, they'll be really unhappy about the earnings tax unless they're made whole with a 1% raise by the feds.
And why would "incentives" be offered to one level of government by another?
All out of the pockets of the same taxpayers.
Likely only the most senior people at the agency will even consider this.
Lots of lost expertise and institutional memory.
Sad.

I’m surprised it took this long to call out Kim Gardner’s bullshit, this was purely a witch hunt and revenge case for greitens censuring that dumb loud mouth black biotch that wanted the President murdered. It’s about time too, those people in shitty Louis have been out of control for far too long.

Is anyone investigating the actions of the "Special Prosecutor" now that it has come out that he was a former partner of Greiten's Defense Attorney?
