Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh accused of inappropriate relationship with teen

Charles Pugh was still unaccounted for as an attorney held a press conference Wednesday afternoon claiming the Detroit City Council President had an inappropriate relationship with a student.

Ivan Land, an Oak Park attorney representing the teen’s mother, claims Pugh took the student off campus in a city car and bought him gifts.

Earlier Wednesday, a Detroit Public Schools spokesman confirmed they’ve received a complaint that Pugh allegedly gifted money, clothes, and a mobile phone to her teenage son.

In an email to WWJ Newsradio 950, schools spokesman Steve Wasko said a parent of a recent Douglass Academy graduate approached the school with concerns regarding her son’s mentor — whom the mother, in a TV interview, identified as Pugh. Wasko said the school reached out to the mother who said she’d prefer to handle the matter personally. He said the district has since contacted her again, and is awaiting a response.

Fighting the Emergency Manager would be SO much easier if there weren't so many distractions. Unfortunately Detroit elected officials themselves have been making it too easy. From Kwame Kilpatrick to Monica Conyers to this sad accusation...people have been too disappointed in Detroit city government to be energetic in the fight against the E.M.

1. What a jerk--why can't he find someone age-appropriate?

And now he's run off to escape questions....
