Jackson County Redux: Sheriff Forté Vs. Former Sheriff Sharp

The FAILING Kansas City newspaper is hiding their endorsement behind the paywall . . . Here's a more useful overview:

Mike Sharp running to get Jackson County sheriff's seat back from Darryl Forte'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Even though the primary election is next week, whomever wins the race for sheriff in both Cass and Jackson counties will win the office. Jackson County voters will decide between current Sheriff Darryl Forte' and former Sheriff Mike Sharp. Sharp said he's not worried about past controversies impacting this election.

Anyone but lying Forte.

I think Southpark called this election - the choice between a douche and a turd sandwich. But having a choice between an incompetent or a crook is of no consequence as long as we can get rid of a statue.

Naturally, every statue honoring a confederate traitor should be taken down.

Remember that Missouri has open primaries. Anybody can request a Democrat ballot when they go the polling station and cast a vote against the racist crony Forte.

Forte unexpectedly resigned as KCPD Chief before the scandal within the Child Victims Unit emerged.

He took a controversial half-million dollar overtime bonus, and said that he was going to law school.

He then quickly took the Jackson County Sheriff's opening because of his friendship with County Executive Frank White, Jr. He wants to get a 2nd retirement pension from the County, in addition to his generous KCPD pension.

During the Lee's Summit school district controversy with rogue superintendent Carpenter, Forte insulted the LSPD, and unnecessarily inserted the Sheriff's department onto the side of Carpenter, who was playing the race-card.

Forte has continually criticized the Sheriff's Department since he assumed leadership, accuses officers of being racist, and blames all problems on his predecessor or others.

Anybody but the bigot Forte.

Forte did leave as the child sex crimes scandal was discovered under his watch. It is still causing problems yet it is not reported. Forte should have been fired or even charged.

For Darrylicous to declare anyone else to be a corrupt racist is nothing more than a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

We need to get a good look at the County Credit Card statement issued to Mr. Forte. I'm sure the KC Scar will get right on it.
