PATTIE LABELLE WAS RIGHT TO BOOT HIM OFF STAGE!?! KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI STATE REP. DARON MCGEE RESIGNS AMID SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS!!!



Not only is Patti LaBelle one the greatest American soul singers in history, she makes great pies and it turns out she's a pretty good judge of character.

Background, only longtime urban core denizens remember this one, back in 2007 Daron McGee was booted off stage by Pattie Labelle in one of the greatest rebukes of a local politico in the 21st century.

A report from wayback when a bit of close dancing and ensuing banter evoked ire from the musical legend: "Patti stop(ed) the music and immediately chews the bitch out. She tells him “You’re rude! You are very frickin’ rude! I don’t play that! This is not Lil’ Kim! Do you know who I am?!”

To be fair, Ms. Labelle makes it a habit to fire fans off stage at will and she does it repeatedly and fantastically.

We had stopped mentioning this for awhile out of respect for this politico's seemingly bright future. Now, all bets are off especially because TKC ASKED MR. McGEE about the hint of drama and he acted like he didn't know what we were talking about . . . Fair enough, but it gives our blog community freedom to rejoice in the goodness of the last of the soul diva legend and her local political connection.

But I digress . . .

The Pattie Label rebuke was prelude to a much more serious and not nearly as fun bit of Missouri political drama today.

AFTER A SCATHING ETHICS REPORT ALLEGING SEXUAL HARASSMENT, MISSOURI STATE REP. DARON McGEE RESIGNED!!! NOW THE #METOO MOVEMENT SEEMINGLY BOOTS HIM OFF STAGE!!!

Again, in fairness, former State Rep. DaRon McGee cites another job opportunity as the reason for his departure:

"I have accepted an employment position in Kansas City, Missouri which will, unfortunately, cause me to return to my district full-time as of May 3, 2019. As such, pursuant to RSMo. 21.090, I regrettably submit my resignation as District 36 State Representative as of Thursday, May 2, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. It has been an honor to serve."

Check the links and local news doesn't seem to buy his excuse:

KMBC: South KC representative resigns after ethics committee sexual harassment investigation

KCTV5: Reached by phone Tuesday by The Associated Press, McGee said: "I'm not making any comment." He referred questions to an attorney, who did not immediately respond to a message.

KCUR: Kansas City Democrat DaRon McGee resigned from his seat in the Missouri House on Monday night following allegations that he sought an unwanted relationship with an employee in his office for at least 10 months.

KSHB: State Rep. DaRon McGee of Kansas City resigns amid allegations of improper conduct with employee

Fox4: The Missouri House Ethics committee had recommended McGee resign from his committee assignments, as well as his position of Assistant Minority Floor Leader. The committee also recommended McGee repay the House approximately $7,400 to cover the costs of the investigation. The committee also concluded that McGee had repeatedly delayed and obstructed the investigation.

You decide . . .

she had a good song with Michael McDonald that was halfway decent. anybody remember?

"On my own." It was okay. So corny that it stands the test of time just for the giggle factor.

And TKC is right about McGee. At one point it seemed like he had a decent political future. No, not so much in south kc.

Jeez, this is AFTER MeToo, some of the sexual harassment claims and the Greitens resignation. You'd think the guy would be more careful.

An ugly scandal if true. Trying to hook up with a staffer then having her fired after being rebuffed. And he was in leadership plus in the black caucus. Sending text messages is the evidence that busted him ... everything else he could probably have denied or claim a misunderstanding about...

Plus his moustache is good but not great so it let him down in the end ...

John Sharp has gotten away with all kinds of harassment for decades. Why would DaRon think any different.

Someone needs to report on John Sharp and his girlfriend Eslun Tucker harassing City Council Candidate Stacey Johnson-Cosby.

Who the hell is either one of them????

We all need to thank that woman for reporting this because John Sharp was going to run him for 6Th District city council in 4 years. We sure did not need him down at city hall.

Well look who sharp is running now. Andrea boough. That's his new political puppet for city hall since he can't still be there. He got freedom inc & Southland progress to support her even though no one can tell what the **** she has done for south kc. Or blacks. Nothing by the way. Thanks for nothing but another white blond wealthy brook side lawyer airhead John. #winning

Gal from Springfield made this guy part of her leadership team. Lots of ole eggs on her face. Oops. She must be FOR harassment? KC hired this clown? What kind of pictures does McGee have on someone? He couldn't get a job at Jackson County. Wow.

Let's face it the women won't be satisfied until every last male on earth has been hogtied and castrated. Then forced to sit in front of nearly naked lingerie clad women guards and monitors who say "Don't get excited you bastard! What you lookin' at!?!"

Leave it to KC to hire more black trash.

Honestly, he looks kinda slow and pervy... I didn’t realize that was him. The Black man always disrespects the Black female.

When's the next BIG COUNTRY BREAKFAST?

The criticism of Sharp is fair because this guy was his protege. I don't know about Andrea Bough needing John's help, her husband is a federal judge so I'm not sure that is needed.

Bough is not the better candidate, she hasn't really done anything in her career.

South KC is a wasteland. If this is what they elect, then that is what they deserve.

Great column by the editor of the Advocate in this week's paper about DaRon. We're all disappointed.
