Write-in candidate ‘Michael Dugeon’ stirs up confusion

Michael DugeonIn a move clearly intended to derail Mike Duggan’s chance to advance to the general election as a write-in candidate in August, a man named Michael Dugeon announced he’s also running as a write-in candidate.

“It’s official,I’m running for mayor..” Dugeon wrote on Facebook.

So what’s this cat’s platform? It’s unclear, but his Facebook posts this month indicate he is tired of “user ass black bitches” who ignore him unless he has booze or pot.

OK, so he’s not the best candidate for women.

But what about other Detroiters?

“This fake ass city full of clowns,” Dugeon wrote recently.

By all indications, his real name is Michael Thaddeus Dugeon, and he’s a trained barber and enjoys chess.

Dugeon graduated from Cooley High School in 2000.

    If Duggan gets an overwhelming number of votes and enough are misspelled, a general election between Duggan & Dugeon would be rather interesting…

    Especially the ones who don’t even realize how much of a clown they are or allow themselves to be, Mr. Dugeon. Think about it. You know, before you reach for the booze or pot.
