Michael McGee, Jr., has ceased to be a public official and is now simply a foil for public entertainment. His petition to change his name from "Michael Jackson" to "Michael McGee", combined with his silly reaction to inquiries from a reporter, is just the latest episode. My guess is that this is a preemptive move in advance of a revelation that is about to come out of what I assume is the alderman's deeply roiled personal life. I sense a major implosion coming (heck, it's well underway), but will any of his constituents care?
Or will they continue to vote for him because the white community doesn't like him.
