4 months in jail, 5 years probation, no running for public office during probation period.
First order of business-paint over his name on the Detroit Zoo water tower...today
i dont understand the no running for office for 5 years probation thing. If you’re guilty of corruption in government, shouldn’t that bar you forever?
Detroit in chaos was great for attracting people/business to W.Michigan.
But what the hey, it’s not as if D-Town reputation is going to rise even after this.
Where is this clown going to come up with a million dollars?
In my mind it disqualifies him for life. It's up to the voters to bar him for life.
I guess that's why Fox gets labeled as a far right wing conservative news source by the Drive By Media. Over at the Detroit Free Press: Kilpatrick pleads no contest to charge of assaulting police there is zero mention of about to be former Mayor Kilpatrick's party affiliation. But the Detroit Free Press does have a good website name: freep.com, so they can't be all bad ;).
They will take his pension to cover that. He still has a 6 million war chest. Let the civil suites begin. And fire half of the Executive office and half of the Police Exectutive office. It has just started.
Gee, make several millions from corrupt practices, get fined $1 million leaving the taxpayers of New Fallujah out several million. Get 4 months in jail. Who says crime doesn’t pay?
He’ll be back, just like Marion Berry.
In their defense, Detroit Mayor and Democrat are redundant.
I don't disagree that journalists would be more likely to list the party affiliation if it were a Republican, but you would expect reporters to mention things that are unusual, and it is less often that Republicans get caught up in such scandals, though not exactly rare.
