[Ed. – Mayor Fouts, an Independent, described himself as a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016.]
Warren Mayor Jim Fouts used the n-word, compared black people to “chimps” and called old women “dried-up c**ts” in new audio recordings obtained exclusively by Motor City Muckraker.
Fouts, who is holding a Martin Luther King Jr. celebration in Warren this afternoon, didn’t respond to our questions for comment.
In previous recordings, Fouts made crude statements about disabled people, prompting calls for his resignation. He also was fired from his weekly radio show on 910AM Radio Superstation.
Fouts has denied making the statements, saying the recordings were engineered to sound like him. But audio experts disagree.
