Kansas City Star Seyz Jackson County Exec Frank White 'Shameful' For Playing Politics With Federal Stimulus Cash



The newspaper offers far to many words to stress the OBVIOUS and something we pointed out earlier this morning . . .

Jackson County Executive Frank White has a no-good plan to politicize COVID-19 funds

Money line that targets a familiar pair . . .



"The real purpose of the delay is to force Lucas to seek funds through Schulte and James, two former City Hall figures who made no secret of their opposition to his election as mayor. Turning coronavirus funding into such a needless political spat is shameful.

“It’s really frustrating,” Lucas said Monday.

"County legislators could exercise their full authority to spend money by overruling the task force. White gave them that option on Monday, and they should take him up on the offer: The James-Schulte city-government-in-exile should not be the final word on the county’s coronavirus response budget."

Can you imagine how much interest troy made the county by sitting on 123 million dollars for as long as he has and still is?

Frank white has no shame, breaking the law over charging innocent tax payers excessive amounts of property taxes. This coming from a guy that can’t keep his house out of foreclosure. On a side note, did anybody see how fat troy is getting?

^^^ True.

The County should not give the City a penny.

That may be the only picture of Sly where he isn’t the fattest, most obese person in the picture. Too bad Allisia Canady wasn’t there. Would have needed a wide angle lens.

^^^With two tons of fun Troy Schulte and Sly James in the photo... u can see that they barely fit in the frame. Thats at least 1,000 pounds of grift and it wasnt the best capture. A wide angle lense was necessary to improve this shit show.

KC Star : isn’t that just like you? Calling the kettle black?
The star is awesome looking for tax handouts at the city’s expense.
Maybe they can help and pay back all the tax handouts they got in the past.

Hypocrisy sucks - huh KC star(less)?

Driveway paper- shame your neighbors next time you see an un-green newspaper in a driveway.

Horrible fake news people. Losers. Catholic bashers.

Frank White, Sly James and Troy Shulte are having the time of their life making Quinton Lucas miserable. Elections have consequences.

Both appear high risk as they are morbidly obese.

7:41 You do realize the citizens in that city represent most of the people living in the county? What the county shouldn't be doing is playing games with so-called emergency funding. Frank White used anti crime money to buy his boy Caleb Clifford a pickup truck and now he's got the nerve to say he's worried this money will be misused?

^^^The difference is, if the City gets money and misuses it (as if there were any doubt about that), the County is on the hook to pay it back. It is in the County's interest not to keep all the money, but to make sure that the City uses what it gets only on corona related expenses.
