[paypal_donation_button]FLINT, MI – Flint City Councilman Eric Mays says he fell on hard times and pawned his city issued laptop for $100.

The laptop was issued to Mays after he came into office November 2013.

Mays said he has plans to make good on the $100 loan with Music Man Pawnshop located across the street from Flint City Hall after he gets paid on Thursday.

“I don’t’ think it’s criminal, “ said Mays. “I think it just shows I’m poor.”

It is unclear as to whether there are penalties involving pawning city property but Flint City Councilman Scott Kincaid said he will be making a complaint with the Flint Police Department regarding the issue pointing at sensitive City of Flint information that could be on the laptop.

Mays owes $100 for the laptop plus interest and fees. When pawning the laptop he had to disclose his password to the pawnshop.

“When I get it back I will probably just turn it in,” Mays said. “I don’t use it nor do I use the cellphone they gave me.”

  1. I’d like to know what The City of Flint did to be put through all the hell its been going through for all these years! Nothing but, idiots, and thieves taking over this city, and nobody cares.

    1. What did Flint do to deserve its current predicament? That’s easy, the good people of Flint keep electing people like this councilman, that’s what they did.

    1. Eric Mays is always eating and drinking at The White Horse Tavern. Seriously, the man is useless. He needs to be removed and jailed for all of his assanine antics.

  2. Fuck that laptop and everything else the city got to offer. Be worried about the poison ass water yall making the people who gotta live in flint pay for ya bitches. Tell kincaid that shit.

  3. I have had it out for this pile of turkey poop for a while now and the fact that he is still in office boggles my mind. He is scum. He does not care about people or his job. It’s just a way for him to get high and feel important. Eric Mays it’s time for you to do the right thing and step down. Let someone who cares about flint take your spot. You are the worst of the worst. You are a human Nigerian sick uncle scam. All you will ever be is a punch line in flints wonderful history.

  4. Flint City government robbed their residents, by miss-using water bill money meant for maintenance. Then they robbed the State Tax Payers to clean up the mess they made. Then they robbed federal taxpayers to clean up that mess. The whole city counsel should be in jail, along with the mayor, but certainly this crooked May should be.
