KANSAS CITY TAKES BIG MONEY HIT FOR #METOO LAWSUIT AGAINST VISITKC!!!
The price-tag for social justice and allegations against a local cheerleader who claimed that Kansas City hosts 24 MILLION tourists a year . . .
Of course reports leave out the tragic fact that this cash is ultimately the responsibility of local taxpayers.
Visit KC paid $250,000 to settle discrimination claims brought in a lawsuit by former human resources manager Janette Barron.
Barron, who claimed in a lawsuit that she was fired last year after asking for an investigation into allegations of harassing and bullying behavior by Ronnie Burt, the chief executive and president of Visit KC, will receive $137,500. Barron’s lawyer, Lauren Allen, was paid $112,500 in attorney’s fees.
You decide . . .
