Hip-Hop Mayor Charged : Faces Different Kind of Rap Sheet
Time to face the music for Kwame Kilpatrick, the Democrat Mayor of Detroit. The charges against him and his chief of staff lover were laid out, so to speak, today by the prosecutor's office. Obstruction of justice, perjury, misusing public funds and throw in misconduct for good measure. The perjury charge carries up to fifteen years in the big house, but those rap guy types like to have some street cred., right? The misuse of funds stems from his attempt to use $9 million in tax payer funds to keep three whistle blowers quiet.
Kwame, unlike others scumbags that have to face the cameras, did two things very differently. First, he said he will not resign and looks forward to being exonerated. Listen up Kwame Cool Snoop Diddy, you are finished - resign today. Your pitiful city has endured enough without having to listen to anymore of your lies. Second, Kwame's wife and his three children were not present for today's press conference. The judge overlooking this investigation has been told that documents pertaining to this investigation were destroyed. No matter, enough evidence remains, like thousands of text messages between the two love birds. Look on the bright side Kwame, you have a future as governor of NY.
