Charles Pugh Intern Twitter War: Is Councilman A Bully?

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) The Automotive News intern embroiled in a Twitter war with Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh is back at work safe and sound despite Pugh’s oblique threats against his job.

Colleen Robar, director of corporate communications for Crain’s Detroit, which owns Automotive News, said video intern Josh Sidorowicz, who is a paid employee, does not face repercussions at work.

“Josh is an intern and it was a really good learning lesson for him,” Robar said, adding, “He’s still at work, working hard, doing his job.”

Pugh’s public relations staffer said she had nothing to say about the incident, and Pugh himself did not respond.

He had plenty to say on Twitter, though. Check out this exchange between Pugh, who unveiled his chiseled abs and the secrets of his 60-pound weight loss last week on his website, and Josh the Automotive News intern.

And then tell us at the end what you think: Is Pugh a bully?
