Missouri House Rep. DaRon McGee, D-Kansas City, resigned amid sexual harassment allegations.

In his resignation letter, McGee said he was leaving to pursue a new job.

The House Ethics Committee has been investigating McGee when a complaint was submitted stating he “attempted to engage in an amorous relationship with a House employee whom he supervised.”
