TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! DID JACKSON COUNTY EXEC & ASSESSMENT DIRECTOR BETRAY TRUST OF LEGAL POWER PLAYER?!?!
Everything about the Administration of Jackson County Exec Frank White has been sloppy, sketchy and mostly a horrific disaster.
KCTV5 offers another example and some great journalism . . .
Emails show different consideration on tax assessments for those with ties to Jackson County leaders
Money line that stands out even among the bulk of the report featuring the absolute incompetence of the Director of Assessment via easily intercepted e-mails . . .
A KCTV5 News Investigation has uncovered thousands of emails from Jackson County officials, expressing concerns over the fallout from this year’s massive tax assessment debacle, and just not necessarily for the taxpayers.
Not shockingly, the emails reveal some residents may have received special consideration over others and that most of them are rich, powerful, and well-connected.
Previous KCTV5 News reports have focused on the lavish property of attorney and developer Ken McClain.
Despite being a sprawling estate in the same county where some have seen their property values jump as much as 500%, his new tax assessment came back relatively low, only a 53% increase to $690,941 from $450,215 the year before.
Coincidentally, or perhaps not at all, McClain is said to be very good friends with Jackson County Executive Frank White.
Again, read and watch the entire report.
Now here's our TKC EXCLUSIVE TIDBIT told to us earlier this year and easily confirmed by anybody who knows . . .
LOCAL LEGAL EAGLE KEN MCcCLAIN HATES BAD PUBLICITY AND MIGHT BE LOSING PATIENCE WITH FRANK WHITE FOR DRAGGING HIM INTO THIS HOT MESS!!!
Big time support from a member of the elite like Mr. McClain comes by way of longstanding trust and the power player attorney dragged through the MSM mud in a tawdry property tax political hot potato kerfuffle isn't just distasteful but possibly a deal breaker for the dude with very deep pockets who has been loyal to the embattled Exec thus far.
