Coyers’s wife accepted bribes, resigns from city council

June 29, 2009 by  

Democratic Congressman John Coyers’ wife, Monica, has handed in her letter of resignation from Detroit’s City Council amid corruption allegations.

While the letter simply stated her choice to vacate her position, the media reports that she was motivated by her recent poor decision to accept bribe money.

Media sources revealed that Mrs Coyers admitted to taking money from a company in exchange for her vote on a sludge cleanup contract.

Council president Ken Cockrel called for Coyers’ resignation, according to Detroit news ratio station WWJ 950. It was further reported that Cockrel said, "I am glad she did the right thing and resign from the Detroit City Council."

He concluded, "We as a council and a city can move on and forward in focusing on the vital issues our city faces – and we will."

The news source further indicates that Cockrel was confident that the council’s operations would not be interrupted even with this vacant position.

Meanwhile Congressman Coyers was quoted as saying he had nothing to do with his wife’s actions. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19241823-ADNFCR
