This is a rather entertaining series on how government works.
Duggan isn’t corrupt? Here, pull this finger.
I hope Slick Rick’s inaugural emcee buddy ends up in a cell next to Kwame.
“Fitch downgraded $203 million in building authority bonds, $186 million in limited general obligation bonds and $51 million in stadium refunding bonds. … jail boondoggle that wasted $130 million and counting.
Wayne County has a structural debt of $50 million and $40 million more is needed each year to bring its pension system back – the underfunding accounts for about 70 percent of the long-term debt of $2.9 billion.”
Hmmm… bond issues, huh?
Jail contractor Walbridge Aldinger was selected over objections from contractors who complained the process favored the company. Its CEO, John Rakolta, served on a board of a nonprofit led by Mullin that was paying her a $75,000 bonus atop her $200,000 salary from the county.
Move along rank-and-file Romney/Rakolta cult Party sheeple.
Who couldn’t see something like this coming from Mike Duggan?
“Today I decided to endorse Warren Evans for Wayne County executive,” Duggan said in a statement. “Of all the candidates, Warren Evans is the one with whom I can best partner to do the job you elected me to do in the city of Detroit.”
Yep. Alien vs Predator with a dash of coverup agenda succession. Nevertheless, if ones politics are inline within the Democratic Party, the powers that be will surround, embrace, protect, and nurture…
“You’ve heard of the bridge to nowhere? Welcome to the jail for no one.”
Told ya. You’re getting warmer, Ross. However, that jail for no one will be gobbled up by Dan Gilbert for pennies on the dollar.
And, you’ve got a whole gaggle of MI-GOP bootlickers who watched Rakolta line his pockets, main one being, the State AG. Next question would reasonably be, what did the wife of former State AG (Commissioner Laura Cox) know, and when did she know it?
