TKC CONFIRMED!!! CHAOS AT THE COURTHOUSE!!! PRESTON SMITH REVEALS JACKSON COUNTY DEPUTIES DEPLOYED TO CRACK DOWN ON QUESTIONS DURING PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT MEETING!!!



Earlier this week our blog community reported a ruckus, shouting match and authorities taking the cuffs out during a meeting regarding the Jackson County tax crisis.

Accordingly . . .

CHECK PRESTON SMITH OFFERING 1ST PERSON TESTIMONY ON JACKSON COUNTY SHERIFFS MOVING HIM OUT OF HIS SEAT & ENFORCING NEWLY DEVISED RULES FORBIDDING HIS QUESTIONS!!!



Here's the word . . .

Preston Smith, a Board of Equalization member who represents the Blue Springs School District, said: "They have ratcheted this up to a whole new level of conflict . . . They have a procedural hearing where you're supposed to be able to ask questions of the assessor and the staff to find out how things are going and I've attended these before . . . I've asked questions back in July and August. Well, they made a rule that they don't want me asking questions. I was in my seat, ready to have at it. And they wanted me out of my seat and told me to go sit in the audience with a deputy to move me. And then one of the other members of the Board Of Equalization just wanted to ask a question after the meeting and they, for real, dragged her out of the room."

Now, Mr. Smith is calm, smart and very cautious with his words. Our blog community says the scene was far worse and, yes, the cuffs did come out.

MEANWHILE, SHAME ON KANSAS CITY MAINSTREAM MEDIA FOR BURYING THIS LOCAL GOVERNMENT DEBACLE!!!

Subscription sites, hipster mags, country club blogs, non-profit ponzi schemes and "public" news outlets always have their hands out for cash AND THAT'S FINE . . . But we hear so much about how the public must shell out big bucks to get reporting MEANWHILE it was a freebie morning talk show that subsists mostly on rinky-dink local ads which brought this confirmation.

While our TKC blog community loves the gossipy goodness of tabloid op/ed journalism . . . Conservative talker Pete Mundo got the quote on the record:



Check the interview in its entirety:



And so we ask . . .



IS THE JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE ADMINISTRATION SO DESPERATE TO HOLD ONTO POWER THEY'RE FORCED TO USE DEPUTIES TO AVERT ANY POLITICAL CHALLENGE AGAINST THEIR AUTHORITY?!?

Big picture . . .

It's dangerous for the voting public to have an administration in power deploy law enforcement when discontent with policies AMONG COLLEAGUES has become so widespread.

If voters really cared about Democracy in Kansas City, this should be the last straw against this FAILED tenure.

Better yet, we need to talk about Exec Frank White handing in his resignation. A fact of life that's going to happen sooner or later.

Actually, this is beyond chaos.

It's a failed state.

Missouri should have no confidence in the ability of the County to function.

It's time to revoke their charter.

How can any member of the public be barred from a public meeting who is calming behaving as one would expect a citizen of the community should?

Sounds like the making of a communist leadership to me is trying to be put in place.

Handcuffs are needed but it isn't the good people of the county that needs to be wearing them.

"Better yet, we need to talk about Exec Frank White handing in his resignation."

Yeah let's talk about things that aren't ever going to happen, like Grank White's resignation and Chuck M. Lowe's National Brotherhood Week. That'll be interesting.

Again, Pete is now the King of KC talk radio. TKC had to call out Dana and Parks to talk about the assessments. Even then they did it kicking and screaming. Parks messaging Tony saying TKC had some agenda.

Please KCMO, put Mundo on 2 to 6. HE WILL BEAT DANA AND PARKS. HE WILL BEAT THEM IN SHORT ORDER.

Sounds like Frank and his deputies need to be in FBI handcuffs and spend a little time in federal prison. Maybe he can share a cell with Mike Sanders.

Ah, the continuous entertainment that results from electing totally unqualified "personalities" to public offices that actually have some considerable need of competence and ability.
And throw the entire Jackson County legislature into the mix.
The laughingstock of the entire country.
How's the jail project coming along?
Pitiful!

But that's what the people of KC keep voting for, and now they see what socialism is all about and they still don't get it. You people knew what he was like and you put him right back in again!

The Deputies don't work for Frank. They work for the Sheriff. Seems a poor decision on their part to be so draconian. Shouldn't come to that. That County Ordinance was violated by the gentleman I wonder?

Where's Fuck-up Frank ? He'll be no where to be seen until well after the bills go out. I cannot wait till the FBI hauls the whole lot of them away. Then they can put his mugshot next to his happy-ass picture that this town is so sick of seeing.

Nice job Tony.

12:22 so frank and forte are making the deputies drag anybody out of the building that seek answers that they have every right to ask, god damn this is bad, where’s this Galloway broad, the fbi and the state when you need them?

Galloway supposedly only goes after republicans and leaves the dimwits alone, because she’s a dimwit that’s why.

Jackson County business and politics have always been and will always be dirty. Under the table deals, Gestapo-type actions,a failed ex-chief of police, a once great ballplayer who is now a huge joke, along with countless other clueless minions will keep this entity the laughing stock of the state.

Frank got this from the Clintons, Silence your critic's. There is a little corruption in County Government. Where there is money. Or taking money from its Citizens .OR not spending taxpayers dollars correctly$ The Feds have there eye on Jackson County I'm I could be wrong. Only time will tell.

Sheriff Deputies had no legal Authority to enforce rules set by assessment department.

You mean, "nice job Pete Mundo."

Without a single doubt some zip code areas where targeted with huge assessment increases with the deliberate intention of forcing people to sell, even at a loss, or go bankrupt and end up in foreclosure.

Start asking Beatty's big contributors in the McHome Building and McReal Estate rackets.. hello whats going on with you people?

Sorry to tell all you conspiracy mongers out there, one of the real scandals is that Frank is truthfully a Republican, just ran as a Democrat because It’s easier to win in Jackson County. He gets his and screw the rest of you is his true motto.

Just wait a while longer as always, waiting and hoping is important if you live here in Show Me land, and the great Midwest Unicorn of frosty goodness and deliciousness, like Godzilla, will swoop down out of the clouds and save everyone from these monster tax bills.

We need to bail out the local dream home builders still struggling from the great recession. In order to prosper they need a big supply of cheap homes to tear down. Frank and Gail are just delivering the goods.

I was over on the east side this afternoon and overheard someone say, "When did our Sheriff Deputies become a pack of goons for the power elite."

Probably when some Leawood based Real Estate land sharks pulled aside the board and said, we want you to shut these fuckers up! You know what I'm sayin?

we need to elect our assessor just like every other county in Mo

Forte is the perfect thug enforcer for our local banana republic.

How come Frank is getting dirt cheap low assessments on his urban core properties when everyone else in the urban core is getting reamed?

Frank White Jr Softball Complex

Doesn't pay one single penny in property taxes very interesting.

How did Frank get a 2019 assessment of $11,250 on his 3 beds 1.5 baths 1,955 sqft property on Olive? Very interesting. It's no wonder they have the cops removing anyone who dares ask questions at these meetings.

Forte has done all he can do to protect Frank. Forte was an asshole as KCPD and stile 500,000 from the taxpayers. It’s time they both go. Forte, when are you going to address how you owned properties bought up to build East patrol? Jackson County needs a sheriff that isn’t corrupt. Time to find someone who will stand up for the troops and those that they serve.

Only 28 comments? Hmm

What is even funnier is Lucas bragging about all the incredible things he has accomplished already to provide affordable housing to the KCMO market.

LMAO

Well he won't have to pay a property tax bill thats increased 1008% in just one year. So he's sittin' pretty!

7:16 Tweety's payin 309.84 on his two cars. Taking a massive hit- major setback in his life plans.

Plus KCMO is paying a whopping ZERO taxes on his apartment building. Assessed at $72,205 2019 apparently just for looks.

Why not just hire KCPD riot cops to stand outside when the BOE has meetings for special frosty effect? Form a riot line when the media pulls up to ask questions?

^YES!!

Forte is the ultimate diversity hire. As a sheriff he makes a great self-enricher and defender of the local corruption class.
