His public appearances are not going to have a lot of media there. That attention Gee craved was a double edged sword. It made him recognizable but it also cost him his job. He's a smart guy who did some dumb things.
I could see the same thing happening if it was Santa Ono, Fr. Graham, or even O'Dell Owens at Cincinnati State. Shawnee State's president? Probably not.
