Macomb County Prosecutor Pete Lucido fires back at critics as ML, Marc, Shawn and Intern Patrick try to get a word in edgewise, while Joe seeks leniency.

THE STRAIGHT DOPE: When Macomb County Prosecutor Pete Lucido offered ML a job as his spokesman, he vowed he would never decline to address a controversy. Well, he’s in the middle of a pickle – and he’s not backing down. Here’s some background.

Lucido inherited a prosecutor’s office in disarray after his predecessor was charged in state and federal court with felonies. ML recounts the fall of Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith.

ML asks Lucido if he found anything in the critical evaluation of his leadership style that he could use to make changes. Listen and learn what he says.

One of the allegations in the report is that Lucido treats women differently from men. Hear how he came up with the nickname “Double D” for the gatekeepers to his office.

The interview wraps with Lucido offering ML a job – and ML offering some free advice.

The crew also discusses ML’s latest column, which reveals how public officials used their position to get leniency for a colleague who tried to lure them into a bribery scheme.
