    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

On this edition we take on the new rules proposed to regulate charity poker in Michigan. The state gaming board says they're needed to ensure the integrity of the games and make sure that the money actually goes to charity.  The Executive Director of the Gaming Board, Rick Kalm joins us to explain that.  Judy White and David Simpson run an operation that benefits a number of charities and helps fund the Marine City Music Festival. They say the new rules will kill their business and hurt the very charities they're aiming to protect.

Next, we move to an effort that would make ticket scalping legal.  State Rep. Tim Kelly (R) Saginaw Township and State Rep. Douglas Geiss (D) Taylor have crossed party lines to support a measure that would repeal Michigan's 82 year old law against selling tickets for more than face value.  They say it levels the playing field against web sites like Stub Hub, and it may actually make ticket prices lower.  But Grand Rapids area boxing promoter Glen Bailey says just the opposite will happen.  He thinks ticket scalpers should remain criminals in the eyes of the law.
