The rights of Tenants to a livable apartment are obviously a huge issue as out of town slumlords rip off KC citizens. The mayor was happy to ride this issue to election. So why are the Mayor and City Council shuffling around on funding the Tenants' Advocate office that would make enforcement far more efficient than waiting for the TV news, the Feds, and the US Senate to jump on the wagon?

The KCMO "Housing Authority" is really on top of their game.
All it took to get their attention to the condition of properties that they supposedly provided oversight for were weeks of investigative reporter coverage on the local TV news and speeches by a US Senator.
Anyone home at 12th and Oak?
Sad.

Why not define Biden as Senile? He is! He doesn't know who he is or where he is half of the time. He didn't even remember what he was running for, and then called himself an O-Biden-Bama democrat. But we all know how you anti-American democrats love fighting, corruption, and communism as your way of life.

Why mention the Senate? Congress, Schitz, Jerry The Toad Nadler, Pelosi et al are too busy impeaching to give a shit about this. Schumer yells at SCOTUS. This all takes precedence.
