Duggan says he wants privacy. Screw that!!! He hasn't earned that privilege. Not when he's potentially funneling city resources to some home wrecking bimbo from Novi who's giving him blowjobs.

A thorough investigation needs to determine if a quid pro quo arrangement has occurred.

Yah, apparently the Mayor "lives" in Commerce and has been seen @ Kroger :)

Every time I find a Democrat I like, at least on a personal level, they disappoint me with something. Butch Hollowell picking up a prostitute, John Edwards sex scandal, and I dont need to go into Ficano.

I wonder how much money and perks Duggan has pocketed from the Ilitch family? It's amazing how much favor they receive from the city.

Nice to see some mainstream media outlets finally do some honest reporting on the Ilitch clan. However, just like Flint, it took the national media's lead (in this case, HBO) to get the local media to wake the hell up.

Gotta love crony capitalism!!!

Which is why the REAL Detroit (the neighbourhoods) will NEVER prosper under crony capitalism .The Ilitches (termed "crooks" by the late Jim Northrup on the Ron Cameron Show a couple of years before his June 8 ,2011 death;it was the same show on which Northrup said that he'd shoot Jim Price in the head if he,Northrup,could get away with murder because Price back-stabbed Northrup to get Northrup's PASS gig,a few years before Jimbo landed the WJR,now 97.1 The Ticket job after Lary Sorensen's troubles cost him the spot ) GOT SWEETHEART DEALS FOR YEARS to build their empire with precious little done for average Detroiters,and Danny Boy Gilbert is following the Ilitches' playbook in gentrifying Detroit. (Small wonder LeBron hates Gilbert.) Phil Regan,Ron's guest last week,may be nicknamed "The Vulture," but he has nothing on the crony capitalists who are dining on billions of dollars of tax breaks at the expense of the citizens of America's poorest major city .

Bear in mind the tax breaks pertain to new taxable value that is being created by virtue of development activity. It's not as if prior money from the city budget is being diverted.

However, the whole concept in general still stinks. A panel of appointees gets to pick winners & losers. They get to choose which developers receive the benefit of TIF district funds. They get to choose the types of projects for which TIF district funds are spent.

Sometimes, developments that are a "bad idea" get off the ground because of this form of subsidization.

Sometimes, developments that would have occurred anyway without special assistance get the benefit of such monies (thus depriving the municipality of new tax dollars to which it would have otherwise been entitled).

What I truly hate are the dog & pony shows staged by large developers who have their hands out. Usually, conceptual drawings look little like the final product and numerous promises are unmet. Because their buddies sit on the panels who approve usage of TIF proceeds, development agreements usually are "covenant lite," meaning developers face few or zero consequences if they fail to deliver on certain promised benefits to the community.

The Ilitches have NEVER undertaken any developments that involve a large residential unit component. That right there should've been a red flag regarding assessment of execution ability with regard to 'District Detroit."

I wonder if there is enough out there somewhere to have him share a cell with Kwame?

This is a pitfall of a liberal city. Lying and theft. Chicago is about to have the same problem, in my opinion.

"All liberals are the same."

Wow. Stereotype much?

I've got news for ya. Plenty of politicians on both sides of the aisle are sleazy.

Just having liberal views does not make oneself a "liar."

For a top 20 TV market, do we have THE WORST investigative journalism, because it sure seems like it. Ever since Fox 2 gutted their Problem Solvers division and Steve Wilson left Channel 7 our investigative journalism has been pathetic in this town. In-fact, save for ML Elrick at that Detroit News and Steve Neveling at Motor City Muckraker, what real investigative journalism do we really have?

Mike Duggan has now 4-5 major scandals that come to mind that the pathetic news media in this town, print and TV, have dropped the ball on. The home demolition contract scandal, the Land Bank Authority, fudging crime statistics, auctioning off downtown priorities like cars, and a potential quid pro quo with a mistress, the media has done woefully inadequate reporting on these matters.
