    Saving Detoilet With One Altruistic Deadbeat After Another

    Yessiree, Michigan's very own chocolate Anderson Cooper is going to stick everyone with his poor financial choices.

    City Council President Charles Pugh is facing foreclosure and says he likely will abandon his $385,000 Brush Park condominium.

    His personal financial struggles come as he and council colleagues fight to bail Detroit out of its own fiscal crisis.

    On Friday, Pugh said he can't afford to pay his mortgage after taking a pay cut and leaving a high-paying TV career to run for the City Council.

    "Making my mortgage payments has been a struggle for me," Pugh wrote in an email. "I fought hard to stay in my condo because I had an attachment to it, but I can no longer afford to do so."

    The mortgage issue is the latest financial problem facing Pugh, 40, a former Fox 2 television anchor and radio show host who was the top vote-getter in the 2009 election. He is paid $76,500 as council president.

    "I am devoted to this city and helping us to move forward despite wage cuts and personal sacrifices such as foreclosing on my own home," Pugh said. "These are the tough choices Detroiters make every day, and I am no different."

    Pugh is still living in the condo and would like to keep it, but he needs a "substantial decrease" in the mortgage, spokeswoman Kirsten Ussery said.

    Um, no dummy.  Charles, you greedily chose to place yourself into a position that you knew you could not afford.  Then again, finances never have been a priority for Charles, have they?

    BTW Charles, nice suspected DUI coverup too.

    Yup. "Vanity" Charles, it's a real b!tch for you, isn't it?

    These shemps are looking at effectively loosing their job when an EM is appointed later this year to clean house, and only two of them are capable of making the obvious choice (short of publically acknowledging that they are all in way over their heads and resigning for the good of the city).
