Missouri Education Board Head Faces 2nd Lawsuit
KANSAS CITY - The new head of the Missouri State Board of Education is facing a second lawsuit accusing him of using his position as pastor of a Kansas City church to engage in sexual misconduct.
The latest lawsuit, filed late Wednesday, alleges the Reverend Stan Archie made lewd comments about his sexual prowess after he began counseling a 15-year-old congregant, who is now 23. The lawsuit says Archie encouraged the girl to act promiscuously and report her experiences to him.
A lawsuit filed last year claimed that Archie engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with his former assistant.
Archie didn't immediately return phone messages left Thursday at his home and Christian Fellowship Baptist Church. His attorney, Michael McCausland, said he just received the lawsuit Thursday morning and hadn't yet discussed it with Archie.
