SUPPORTERS CLAIM CROWD CHANTED 'CHIEFS!' AND DIDN'T BOO JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE!!!
Amid rising property taxes and growing frustration with local government there was an important bit of political push back documented yesterday and now up for debate . . .
ONLOOKERS CONTEND KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SUPER BOWL PARADE DENIZENS STARTING BOOING JAXCO EXEC FRANK WHITE!!! HIS SUPPORTERS DISPUTE THE ALLEGED OUTCRY OF OPPOSITION!!!
There's a persistent myth that the Exec retains "popularity" from his playing days but years of scandal leading the courthouse seem to have depleted the love of many sports fans.
Audio from the scene is inconclusive, check the WaPo livestream of the event at 2:20 and notice the Exec getting a little flustered as he begins his remarks.
Moreover, announcer Mitch Holthus forgets his title and introduces him as "administrator" and not Executive.
We reached out for comment and here's word sent back our way from Courthouse insiders . . .
"Yes, the crowd was more interested in current Chiefs players and that's understandable. Listen closely and you'll hear people yelling out "Chiefs" not booing the Exec. In fact, he greeted hundreds if not thousands of people during the day who remember the 1985 World Series Championship fondly, took pictures with the Executive and expressed their admiration. Some of your readers are mistaken TKC, Frank White still has a very strong base of support and fans remember all that he as done for Kansas City."
