Mayor of the third largest city in Michigan didn't want to go to a special Olympics event. He's on tape calling them the R word.

Resign? Or is it just a grab em by the pussy society and we should ignore it?

I don't know if you guys have heard these tapes, but they're pretty bad.   He calls the kids in Special Olympics Re.... a bunch of times.  He says he dreams of prostitutes coming to his house, shit like that.  He says he doesn't want to go to this event because the organizers are Re...'s too.  

Hackell the Macomb county executive who was once Macomb County Sheriff released them.  He is a democrat also.  Says on the radio today that fouts "Is a sick man, very sick and discusting"  Fouts is now saying the tapes were not him and that they were doctored.

Wow. I just listened to the recordings. He is saying they are not real. I really hope that is true. In regards to the Special Olympics athletes, he asks "what good are they," and says "they are not even human beings." He goes on to wish them well "in a cage."

Voice analysis will easily determine if the tapes are real or not. I'm betting on the tapes being real given the source...

This has been a crazy story for a couple of weeks.

Politics in Macomb county aren't what they used to be. First there's bribery (for a whopping $7k lol) over garbage hauling contracts, now there's scandals over covering up old trash dumping sites.

This is an ongoing fight between the Fouts faction and the Hackell faction.

Macomb is a place with loyal voters. They voted another Hackell to be sheriff after his father, Bill Hackell was found guilty of rape and did 2+ years in a state prison.

Agree.  I have no doubt the tapes are real.  I'm just going to wait and see if the public is outraged enough to say get out, or if it's a "grab em by the pussy" type thing now and nobody really gives a shit.

This reminds me of when the Mayor of one of the cities in Canada was caught on video smoking crack. Even that wasn't a swift resolution for the public so it will be interesting to see what happens here.

They need to bring back David Jaye to moderate things.

I saw that article yesterday, looks like he's in full denial that it is him on the tape. Real classy guy.

Dwags, we live in post-truth America and everyone should educate themselves on the concept of gas lighting. It's the new PR tactic to deflecting scandals like this. There was an outstanding article in Teen Vogue of all places on what gas lighting is.

I'm familiar with Gas Lighting, and I did read it. Fouts is now being asked by a councilman to take a lie detector test as to whether or not that's him on tape. Should be entertaining as to how he tries to get out of it.

Like self deprecating humor is equivalent to the direct and disparaging remarks Fouts made.

Clumsy move by Obama, but as offensive? Not even close.

Can you pass a resolution to make someone prove it's not them on tape? Seems to me that's a bit off. Warren city council just did.

lol.... this guy sounds like the type of guy that's entertaining out at the bar but someone you don't want to associate with anywhere else.

What's up with people taping private conversations, though? That's kinda fucked up.

Investigation of Warren Mayor Fouts' executive assistant requested

The Warren Civil Service Commission has been asked to investigate whether the short-term transfer of Mayor James Fouts’ top office assistant to another department violated employment rules.

Jeanie Williams, a city resident who requested the probe, feels Executive Assistant Amanda Mika may have abused work rules in order to gain employment protections if Fouts fired her or if he no longer was mayor and she was terminated by a successor.
