Detroit Pay-to-Play Scandal Expands

Ziedman's in Southfield

As Southfield City Councilman William D. Lattimore is indicted for bribery, it’s apparent the pay-to-play scandal goes beyond Detroit boundaries and former Detroit councilwoman Monica Conyers. This is the same pawn shop owner praised by Monica Conyers in a 2007 Detroit Council meeting.

So, before his indictment, Lattimore was part of the “he said, she said.” While the Southfield location may not be the same, there’s no disputing former Detroit City Council memberMonica Conyers has ties to Ziedman’s. Apparently the connecting link in all of this is one Bobby Ferguson.

And no one believed Detroit was open to regionalism!
