    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.

    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.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    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.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
