Detroit (WWJ) -- There are new calls for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to resign amid the scandal that has the mayor facing ten criminal charges.
Congressman John Dingell issued a statement Wednesday calling for the mayor to resign.

Who had Tamara Green (the stripper who Kwame’s wife beat) silenced forever?
Damn those pesky e-mails, LOL
Why doesn’t he go on TV and say, “The B#$%*ch set me up!!”
Worked for Marion Barry in DC.
“There are new calls for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to resign amid the scandal that has the mayor facing ten criminal charges.”
It should be obvious to all that this guy is never going to leave voluntarily, no matter what charges are raised against him. As long as he can walk into that office, he will continue to grasp it.
The ONLY way he will be leaving is in handcuffs, under armed guard.
And - considering the threat that Detroit [or, more correctly, what’s left of Detroit] would go up in flames again afterwards, who has the physical constitution to remove him?
Democrats don’t resign. They get reelected.
This is a badge of courage for him, and one more reason Democrats cannot be trusted in ANY elected office.
I would like to see him stick around until late October. He is driving the state into McCain’s column.
John Dingell? No relation.
My guess is DNC internals show that this buffoon is a huge drag on not just Michigan but OH, PA as well.
On the Mildred Gaddis show ( 1200 am African American Talk out of Detroit), callers have called in with the question will Kawame be a drag on Obama. They know it is so.... They want to get rid of him, but he won't go the narcissistic thug.
You Freepers not here in MI have no idea how bad it is. It is not just layoffs, it is now friends getting the pink slip. Housing values so bad, I know one couple mailing the keys to the bank as they move to another state.
And Kawame doesn't help at all.....
Long live Kawame!
“You Freepers not here in MI have no idea how bad it is. It is not just layoffs, it is now friends getting the pink slip. Housing values so bad, I know one couple mailing the keys to the bank as they move to another state.”
I’m looking at doing the same w/ my keys, and I’m almost current on the mortgage. I’m getting great job offers, but they are 500+ miles from my house.
The sad part is that Michigan won’t get any better until either the Big 3 pick up, or until the UAW is dead. I’ve talked w/ employers about coming to Michigan, and their universal comment is that they don’t want to be any place where the UAW is strong.
Interesting enough, I had a conversation with an Auto Engineer the other day that kind of took me back.
His theory is basically the UAW has been neutered. Ya they bluster and talk, but combine the dramatic pay, Benefit cuts and declines in membership, they are not a big factor.
Maybe at some point if he is correct, business would come back if not for all the other problems.....
