Slap Fighting Over Kansas City Sales Tax Royals & Chiefs Letter Of Intent

As we noted previously, there are still SO MANY WAYS THIS THING COULD FALL APART

And check our top post right now . . . That seems to be happening right now.

But this much is for certain . . .

Neither the Royals nor Chiefs could bully politicos in any other city more than they can in KCMO. 

Here's today's report:

"While the Sports Complex Authority has signed-off on the letter of intent, it still needs the approval from the Royals and the Chiefs. Neither club provided a comment as of Thursday afternoon.

"Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. said he wants the teams to sign new leases before voters decide on the sales tax. The question is slated to go to voters on the April 2 ballot.

"White has until the end of Thursday to decide whether to veto the legislature’s move and take the item off the ballot. It would then take six votes from the nine-member legislature to override the veto. Monday, Jan. 23 is the deadline to put an item on April 2’s ballot."
