Kansas City Star Demands Audit Of Sketchy Tax Increase They Endorsed

Our blog community warned more than a few politicos TO STAY FAR AWAY FROM HOT MESS IN THE MAKING.

And now, from behind the paywall, the newspaper reports on a hot mess that it helped to create . . . Check-it:

Conflicts of interest, $19 million unspent - KC's East Side tax program must be audited

The Kansas City Council is close to ordering an audit of the Central City Economic Development program, known as the CCED. It's long overdue and urgently needed. In April 2017, voters approved a one-eighth-cent sales tax to fund the program. It generates around $11 million annually, providing seed money for development projects along the impoverished Prospect corridor.

"I am so, so shocked that the money was wasted and lost and probably went to City Hall cronies and buddies on the inside of this scam!!!"

The stench of mismanagement and corruption seems to follow Ken Bacchus wherever he goes. Remember the millions wasted in the Beacon Hill scandal. Bancrupcy and scandal. Bacchus was in the middle of that mess too. Freedom Inc can do better, and so can The City.

There should be an investigation and the results should be made public. Kansas City taxpayers deserve to know what's being done with their hard earned money.

And yet it will never happen. Weird.

$19 million UNSPENT?
A couple phone calls to the usual suspects would fix that problem in no time.
Turning tax dollars into thin air is their specialty.
And their community and neighborhoods continue to suffer.
And ask them and they'll tell you it's everybody else's fault.
It never changes.

And it never will change. Let em destroy the place. Doesn't bother me. Ain't paying for it. Screw em!

When will voters realize the Democrat Party is totally corrupt?

Taxpayer funds go to crony Contractors, Consultants, politicians, travel, pensions; never to infrastructure.

^^about the same time you realize the republicans are grifters, con-men, fiscal morons, and sexual predators. So likely never right?
