Jackson County Vote For Sheriff Redux

Despite the "extensive" history of both campaigners . . . Smarter people than TKC know that this one really just comes down to Eastern Jack Vs. Urban Core . . . Checkit:

Jackson County race features current, former sheriffs vying for job

JACKSON COUNTY, Mo. - Voters in Jackson County will decide on Tuesday who will lead the sheriff's office for the next four years. The race pits current Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forté against former Sheriff Mike Sharp. Forté took over the department in 2018 after Sharp resigned following a scandal involving him and a woman in the sheriff's office.

Anyone but liar Forte, even Mike Sharp.

And the residents/voters lose again.
Just like with the choice between Lucas and Justus.
The little incestuous political club goes on and on.
And all at taxpayers' expense.

The County settled with the former employee. Dismissal is not the same as exoneration. Sharp still had people on the payroll including his campaign manager who weren’t providing services to Jackson County. Sharp also covered up evidence in support of a female deputy who shot two people and us now charged with a third. Yes Sharp let his deputies run amok in KC wrecking cars, shooting people on scooters, stopping black motorists which makes his deputies happy but terrorizes they rest of us.

Yes Forte left KCPD with tons of vacation and sick time. All retirees do that and it’s allowed by personnel rules. Yes Forte has been given positions of the years because he’s black. Ok, get over it. There’s plenty of white men given positions on Boards because if the color of their skin.

I personally don’t like either one but it’s a no brainer to realize Sharp is the worse candidate.

I have lived long enough to see too many good organizations (political and commercial) destroyed by liberal racists to sit by quietly and watch the race card hustler Forte destroy another law enforcement organization without even trying to stop him. No, I do not like Mike Sharp but I fear Forte turning all of Jackson County into an East Kansas City hell because in the end the only thing that he cares about is his own black ass.

Great choice Democrats! Crooked racist black guy or crooked white guy. It's a giant douche vs. turd sandwich primary! You couldn't find a murderer to make it a 3 way huh?

If Sharp gets elected, how many more raises will he give his girlfriend?

If both these guys are so bad, why don't Jackson County Republicans come up with a qualified and electable Candidate?

Surely not EVERY Republican in the County is a Felon or Child molester.

Hey 9:50 (Darks?), what evidence do you have to support any of the above? what evidence of cover up? Who ran amok? Provide the racial profiling stats to back up your race card claim... you can't because it's all BS. Just like Forte, you are full of lies

Forte was humbug all along. They brought him in as the savior to stop the murders. Opps! It got worse. He left the Dept. in a huge morale swamp. He was never anything more than a fraud. He's poison and with incompetent Frank White, the Black Mayor and the numerous black city council members, it's clear that dark dark days are ahead. Pun intended. Thank God for Kansas.

The Scooter shooting was under Forte not Sharp. The JACO racial profiling stop rate (see attorney Generals web page) is less than KCPD and the last wreck was the Sheriff wrecking his truck. He asked KCPD for a "free tow" but didn't get one.

Forte is disposed by his deputies and commanders which is sad for them, but predictable given his tenure at KCPD where he destroyed our brand and reputation.

Forte left KCPD with far more than sick and vacation time. He hit the city for $1/2 Million with a "M" for comp time for being notified of events and occasionally riding his department motorcycle around and getting massive call back time. Don't you read the paper? He is the largest fraud ever to adorn a KCPD uniform.
