Oh just maybe the fact that the administration of Detroit is corrupt and incompetent? Or maybe the fact that they've run a $200,000,000 annual deficit for the last 4 years and were too stupid or venal to do anything about it. Or maybe the fact that even in corrupt Philly, corrupt DC, and corrupt Baltimore they manage not to spend more than they take in. Someone is getting the loot, and I find it hard to believe that the mayor as the man at the top didn't have his finger in the pie. Or maybe you think all of those IRS harassment cases were initiated by "low level employees." rather than the turd in the white house.
Or possibly you think that he reached the status of mayor in a corrupt and arguable the most mismanged large city in the USA without knowing about or participating in any of the shenanigans.
There’s no credible argument that Mayor Bing is anything other than wholly honest. He was not a part of any prior Detroit administration.
Bing is the first Mayor since probably Roman Gribbs 40 years ago who didn’t loot the city. That he’s voluntarily leaving after roughly just one term demonstrates that.
Knowing about, yes. You'd have to be a complete moron to live in the mitten and not be aware of Detroit's "peculiarities." But there have been no allegations of any kind of wrongdoing on Bing's part during his tenure as Mayor of a failing city. He has done the best that he could in a disastrous situation, better than most would have done. His departure is another blow to Detroit.
