As is so often the case, the attempted cover-up by the Duggan administration of the mayor’s special treatment of a charity run by a close friend is worse than the offense he is accused of committing.

City Inspector General Ellen Ha investigated allegations that Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan used city resources to give special treatment to a Wayne State University-associated nonprofit run by a woman he’s close to. The Make Your Date charity seeks to address Detroit’s alarming preterm birth and infant mortality rate – about 15 out of 1,000 babies born do not see their first birthday (that’s more than double the statewide and national average).
