TKC #METOO MUST READ!!! FORMER KANSAS CITY MISSOURI STATE REP. DARON McGEE EXCLAIMS 'HOW IN THE HELL IS THAT FAIR?!' FOLLOWING RESIGNATION!!!
A rising star in Kansas City politics recently suffered a horrific career setback that send shockwaves through the Southland. Weeks after the controversy, he finally speaks with a community news reporter about the scandal.
Jackson County Advocate: Despite an independent investigation that revealed no sexual harassment took place, Missouri District 36 Representative DaRon McGee said he had no choice but to resign last month.
The independent investigation also stated that the alleged victim did not raise any concerns regarding overtly sexual conduct on the part of Representative McGee. A romantic relationship between McGee and the alleged victim never took place, according to the victim’s statement in the report.
The victim, in the independent report, states that she “never felt uncomfortable around Representative McGee. I never felt that he retaliated against me.” McGee said that the victim’s testimony changed after the report was concluded and she got a lawyer. According to him, she opted to tell a different story when testifying in front of the Committee on Ethics.
“I think that she is now trying to sue the state and financially gain,” said McGee. “What she told the independent investigators was completely different than what she told the committee.”
The independent investigation also revealed that the alleged victim was not the one to file the initial complaint against McGee. It was reported and filed by another elected official. In the House of Representatives, there are certain leadership members who are designated mandatory reporters.
In the most important passages, there's actually a conflict among the super-minority Missouri Democratic Party revealed and a vote that took place over objections. “How in the hell is that fair?” McGee responded.
This really is a great article that deserves a read IN FULL amid the ongoing #MeToo movement and its continued impact throughout the nation.
