  • McClure: The face of a clown.
The results are in and the readers of Daily RFT have elected a new Ass Clown of the Week.

Kenneth McClure, the owner of the south city store Legends Comics and Sports Cards, earned 41 percent of the vote after the alleged child molester drew a gun on police causing an armed standoff that lasted four hours last week.

Second place, with 23 percent of the votes, went to East St. Louis football coach Darren Sunkett. Sunkett has been accused of fielding the Flyers with ineligible players, one of whom is his nephew who lives outside the school district. Meanwhile, Sunkett's undefeated team is still allowed to compete in playoffs and this weekend manhandled Belleville West 29-13.
