Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero has not spoken about why Lansing's former city attorney Janene McIntyre resigned, nor why she was given $160,000 in salary and accrued benefits.

There are still unanswered questions and a growing pile of legal bills swirling around the sudden resignation of Lansing's former city attorney.

Janene McIntyre resigned March 4, but was still paid $160,000 in salary and accrued benefits. Now legal costs related to the separation are mounting.

In the meantime, neither McIntyre nor Lansing Mayor VirgBernero will say why she left and why she was given such a generous payout. 

Judi Brown Clarke, the president of the Lansing City Council, joined Stateside to talk about a recent city council meeting and what the latest is with the investigation into this controversy.
