TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE NEARLY FINISHED?!?!
With military helicopters and drones swirling over Kansas City, the local political rumor mill is once again circulating at full speed.
Inquiring minds among our blog community ask . . .
WILL JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE FINISH HIS TERM?!?!
We've been following this story for quite some time but for tonight, here's a glimpse at a few of the ongoing controversies surrounding an exceptionally embattled local politico who remains that the center of a firestorm . . .
- Once again there's persistent talk of another Fed crackdown at the courthouse and the consequences could go all the way to the top. We remind our blog community that the Feds move SLOWLY and on their own time frame but the tell-tale signs of Federal involvement are becoming clearer for those of us who have been around the courthouse for more than a minute.
- Bad polling numbers hit Exec Frank White HARD. He has always operated under the assumption that that voters love him as much as they did during his playing days. That's no longer the case and this is the FIRST time the leader of the Courthouse has come to terms with his UNPOPULARITY.
- Freedom, Inc is SHOUTING DOWN ANY CRITICISM OF FRANK WHITE. And they're playing tough. Urban core politicos are desperate to put down any East side opposition to one of their top ranking leaders and they won't tolerate talk about his inevitable downfall.
To be fair, the Exec seems to be quickly waking up to the fact now skating on thin ice during the hottest part of the Summer. Recent blasts to the press have shown us a bit of a shift in his rhetoric as Team Frank is now working harder to answer back to critics and clean up his political image . . . This may or may not be too little and too late.
