Why Chris, Why ?

So, I'm eating lunch, watching the Chris Smitherman channel (used to be Media Bridges) and he's telling us that the City is plotting to declare bankruptcy so the county can take over & the county with it's greater white population will squash the black population's influence.
Problem is, that ain't how it works.
From the Ohio Auditor's website we find municipalities in Ohio don't do Bankruptcy - they do Fiscal Emergency:
"The original municipal fiscal emergency law was enacted in 1979 as a response to a financial crisis in the city of Cleveland. Since that time, financial planning and supervision commissions have aided over 50 governments declared in fiscal emergency."

And, surprise, nothing about county takeover.
More fear-mongering misrepresentation....
