DETROIT (AP) - Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, already in state prison for probation violations stemming from his conviction for lying about an affair with his chief of staff, was indicted Wednesday on federal fraud and tax charges for allegedly using his charity as a slush fund.

Federal prosecutors said the alleged scheme is related to the Kilpatrick Civic Fund, a tax-exempt fund that was supposed to pay for voter education and other purposes. Instead, they accuse the former mayor of taking cash payments from the fund for himself, friends and relatives. He is charged with filing false tax returns for 2003 through 2007 and evading taxes in 2008, according to the indictment.

Prosecutors accused Kilpatrick, a Democrat, of failing to report at least $640,000 in taxable income between 2003 and 2008, which includes money, private jet flights and personal expenses paid by the civic fund.

It is not as though it is “real” money - only taxpayer money.

"Lies...lies perpetrated by the Man to keep the brutha down..."

Actually, we're working way too hard to keep the "butha" UP, and we don't have time to plan and scheme to keep them down.

Obama Endorses Kwame Kilpatrick

RightMichigan — August 07, 2008 — Kwame Kilpatrick was today ordered to go directly to jail without passing GO or collecting $200. Bound to be a tough blow for Democratic POTUS nominee Barack Obama who asked Kwame to host fundraisers and offered, in part:

“And so I'm grateful to call him a friend and a colleague. And I'm looking forward to a lengthy collaboration in terms of making sure that Detroit does well in the future.”

Thanks for the pings; post. HOORAY Feds! The POS King Kwame should never see the light of day again. The damage he has done is incalculable. Any response from Granholm? Cox? Stabenow? Levin? Dingell?

I can see it now...Obama giving this POS a pardon right before he exits office.

HOORAY Feds!
