Mayor Docks Self Day's Pay For Using F-Word Plusquellic Imposes $500 Self-Punishment

AKRON, Ohio -- Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic has docked himself a day's pay for cursing during an argument with a parking attendant.The $500 self-punishment was revealed Tuesday when the mayor also apologized for using the "F-word" during the well-publicized incident with the attendant last month. That's when the mayor and the attendant disagreed over where Plusquellic should park at a downtown lot when he arrived for a meeting with a museum director. The mayor talked to the man's supervisor the next day and got him fired.Plusquellic said he's sorry for swearing. But he's not apologizing for anything else.

Wonder if he'll donate that $500 to the guy he got fired?

No kidding. I don't care if he fined himself. He's basically saying that it's ok he gave that guy a hard time over a parking space if he didn't curse.

Hasn't this same mayor pulled some antics before that has landed him in the news?

Really hurting his chances of re-election. I know one vote he won't be getting.
