    Let it Rip Weekend: Mayoral race and EM's 'dumb & lazy' comment

    Monday, August 5 2013 8:20 AM EDT2013-08-05 12:20:25 GMT
    We take on the race for Detroit Mayor and the controversial comments by Detroit's EM calling Detroiters "dumb, lazy, happy and rich."
    A new poll shows Mike Duggan leading in the race for Detroit Mayor. Could those dirty tricks against him actually be paying off in his favor? Duggan supporter and community activist Malik Shabazz thinks

Should amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting be regulated by the state?  After the tragic death of a fighter in Port Huron, many think new laws are past due.  One of them is State Rep. Harvey Santana (D-Detroit).  He debates the issue with fight promoter Joe Donofrio.

Next, there's a new bill in the state legislature that would take on gender discrimination in the workplace.  Basically, if an employee requests it, the boss would have to disclose the salaries -- not names -- of similarly situated employees.  Attorney Karen Faett believes that won't solve anything.  In fact, she thinks it could make the situation worse.  She discusses the issue with State Senator Rebekah Warren, who introduced the bill. 

And finally, State Rep. Harvey Santana comes back for a fun segment called "Dueling Charlies."  After he was caught on camera doing a pretty good impersonation of Charlie, we decided to host a game show of sorts to see if he can "out Charlie" Charlie Langton.
