Name Calling at Cleveland City Hall

CLEVELAND, OH - A Cleveland City Councilman is demanding an apology from the mayor after he called him a "pimp."

Cleveland City Councilman and mayoral candidate Zack Reed says he is insulted and wants an apology from Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, who is running for a fourth term as the city's mayor. 

"I am totally offended and I demand an apology," said Reed. 

Jackson is moving ahead with plans for a dirt bike track in Cleveland. On Tuesday, he lashed out at Reed who opposes the plan and called him an opportunist.  

"There are pimps in every world," said Jackson. 

"And you're saying Councilman Zack Reed is one of them" a reporter asked the mayor. 

"I just said it," Jackson replied. "He's pimping this situation."

Reed fired back while talking with WTAM's Mike Trivisonno today saying, "it's your [Jackson's] policy that allow these dirt bike riders ride up and down the roads; therefore, instead of debating the policy, you attack me's an insult," said Reed. 

Jackson said he wants dirt bike enthusiasts to have a place to ride safely. He's also calling for a ban on ATV's in parks, city streets and sidewalks.
