Detroit mayor being investigated
DETROIT (AP) — An inspector general’s probe into whether Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan gave preferential treatment to a health program involves over 400,000 pages of documents.
The Free Press has sought records, including emails and financial reports, from the city’s Office of Inspector General through a public records request. Detroit’s law department billed the newspaper over $200,000 for documents, but still plans to fight the release.
City officials cite inspector general concerns about details being taken out of context and “misleading the public” in a Sept. 10 letter responding to the records request.
