Democratic House Leader Lied To My Face. By Geniusofdespair

At Daniella Levine Cava's Traffic Summit I asked Kionne McGhee why he voted to allow people who committed domestic violence offenses to get their guns returned to them, noting that he didn't vote with the other local democrats (the only other local Dem. Roy Hardemon  - who has part of Miami - voted with him).

Kionne McGhee said: "That is untrue" and turned his back on me.

He didn't even inquire about it to make sure he understood what I was saying. Just turned his back.

2/1 Ross Hancock on Facebook:
Yesterday afternoon, State House Democratic Leader Kionne McGhee abandoned his Democratic common-sense colleagues and joined Republicans to pass a bill that would make it much easier for suspects in a disorderly conduct cases, including domestic violence cases, to get their seized guns back from police. Thanks to Reps. Asensio, Duran, Geller, Stafford and many others for opposing HB 6013, “Return of Property: Removes provision requiring court to order return of pistol or firearm when pistol or firearm is taken by officer with search warrant or without search warrant upon viewing breach of peace.”

Not trusting Ross only, I looked it up on the State of Florida Website:

Local Republicans Bileca and Trujillo voted for this, in fact, every single Republican in the House voted for it.  Kionne McGhee actually voted with a guy called Pigman. That should have been his first warning.

So, Liar, Liar Pants on Fire Mr. McGhee.

From Politico this week: "McGhee organizes House Democratic luncheon with Airbnb officials as vacation rental fight looms,” by POLITICO Florida’s Matt Dixon: Incoming Democratic House Leader Kionne McGhee is organizing a Wednesday luncheon [at the Governors Club] for House Democrats hosted by Airbnb, a company waging a big legislative fight this session … as it pushes legislation that would limit local government's ability to regulate short-term vacation rentals.

In late 2000's met McGhee when he was with Miami State Attorneys office to report a conman and called him to follow up and he basically gave me the cold shoulder.

Another local pol who does not live in the district he/she represents. Republicans won't go after him because he's useless and could be replaced by a Democrat who just might be effective.

Looks like quite a few Democrats voted for this dumpster fire of a bill: Richardson, Moskowitz, Hardemon, DuBose....
