Could Gay City Council Hopeful Charles Pugh Actually Subtract From Detroit’s Political Scandals?


Hey, we’re just as excited about homo Charles Pugh’s Detroit City Council candidacy as anyone else. Voters sure seem to like him! But this is Detroit politics. The land of Kwame Kilpatrick, who holds the honor of being the only Detroit mayor to be charged with a felony while in office. So while Pugh came out on top in the primary, and heads into the Nov. 3 general election against 18 candidates (for nine open seats), we’re just waiting for the shoe to drop — whether it’s Pugh’s or someone else’s. We wouldn’t recognize Detroit without corruption or criminal allegations! But yes, yahoo for putting Motor City in the national spotlight for loving The Gays.
