Peter Lucido

What is it about the office of Macomb County Prosecutor? First, former Prosecutor Eric Smith thought the county till was his personal checking account. He’s now in prison for that mistake, and other financial fraud. Now comes a report that current prosecutor Peter Lucido has made inappropriate statements containing sexual comments and/or sexual innuendo and – can you believe it? – that he used county personnel and other resources for personal and some campaign-type activities. Lucido has denied all, just as he did following a two-year investigation in the Michigan Senate where he was known to be handsy and had a problem understanding boundaries when it came to women, including complaints by a reporter with Michigan Advance and state Sen. Mallory McMorrow (D-Royal Oak, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills). According to a Macomb County memorandum, nine people made complaints as to how Lucido treats women on his staff versus males, such as “rude,” “curt” and “unprofessional.” Two of the complaints allege on Valentine’s Day, Lucido said “he would like a kiss from his ladies.” The report also alleges he made comments about some of the women’s size and breast size. As for the misuse of county resources, the report has a whole list of offenses, many minor – but all inappropriate.
