WARREN, Mich. (AP) - City council members in suburban Detroit might ask that Mayor Jim Fouts take a lie detector test to disprove that he made racist and sexist comments.

Fouts insists it’s not his voice on recently released recordings - and he’s vowed not to quit as mayor of Warren.

The Warren City Council meets Tuesday. Council member Scott Stevens wants Fouts to take a lie detector test and undergo a voice analysis. But council member Robert Boccomino tells The Macomb Daily that he doubts the resolution will pass.

Fouts issued another denial last month after the release of separate recordings containing disparaging remarks about disabled people.

Many federal, state and local officials and clergy have urged the mayor to quit.
