TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! BEHIND THE SCENES: KANSAS CITY URBAN POLITICAL GROUPS DENOUNCE DIVISIVE JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL WILLIAMS!!!

Division among the Republican party tops nationwide headlines but in Kansas City there's a very similar local dispute gaining steam at the Jackson County Courthouse.

First, let's review . . .

Because local media is too busy gleaning all their info from Anderson Cooper, our blog was first to report a power shift on the Jackson County Legislature.  

Here's confirmation from local guv for those who want to read the official version: The Jackson County Legislature selected Dan Tarwater III as Chairman and Ron Finley as Vice-Chair during its first meeting of the new year.

Now . . . 

A controversial vote by Legislator Crystal Williams has merited outcry among the political leaders in the local African-American community. 

For those who don't know, Legislator Ron Finley is a solid local elected official who has garnered experience throughout Kansas city politics over more than a generation. He has served at the courthouse and on city council and garnered the respect of his constituents & colleagues.

And here's the point of contention . . .

OUT OF SPITE, JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL WILLIAMS VOTED AGAINST THE NEW VICE CHAIR WITH NO OTHER CANDIDATE IN OPPOSITION!!!

Just like so much of her career. The vote seems to be powered out of spite but urban leaders argue a more relevant point . . .

"Crystal voting against the only Black candidate for Legislative Vice Chair when there was no alternative is just a slap in the face to the African-American community. She has turned into a Jackson County 'Karen' who is taking out her anger on Black man who doesn't deserve her scorn . . . This has become a routine for the 'White Women's Political Caucus' that has very little diversity and has continually sold out the Black & brown community in favor of their own little clique."

Frustration with Legislator Crystal Williams isn't just coming from 12th & Oak insiders.

In a recent teleconference, leaders from the Urban Summit & The KC SCLC openly expressed their concern with deteriorating relations between the African-American leadership and Legislator Crystal Williams.

Insider perspective analysis . . . 

"Think about it this way, the Democratic Party earned a majority in the U.S. Senate solely because of Black voters. In Jackson County the Democratic Party holds a majority specifically because of the African-American community . . . Still, you have 'leaders' like Crystal Williams who so easily dismiss and oppose our leaders to push their own agenda that has very little benefit to the Black community. She's not a good Democrat, not a team player, it's time more people started to see her destructive politics at face value." . . .

A pointless fight among a bunch of losers.
All scrapping for whatever might be left in the bottom of the barrel.
And the biggest losers of all?
The residents and taxpayers of Jackson County.
They lose decade after decade by electing the dregs in the JaCo legislature.
Of course, the county executive is even worse.
Sad.

Anything that offends the black community is good and righteous. The black community is offensive to everyone, especially anyone who pays taxes and wishes to live in a safe community.
