If the judge truly wanted what was best for Detroit, he’d bar the mayor from returning from Denver.

I hope that this criminal’s face is all over the TV coverage of the democrat convention. It will show the true quality of that slimey party.

Not likely. I would imagine his mug won't be on the screen for one second.

I wouldn't count on it. He'll be the invisible super delegate. I'll bet the DNC machine has already issued directives to the MSM: “No pictures, interviews, no coverage of any kind. Kwame doesn't exist.”

Let’s see, what is the stock answer all criminal polticians give when asked questions by the press? Oh yeah: “I’m sorry, but as you know I am under investigation by the Wayne County Prosecutor and cannot comment on this active criminal case. What I will say, is that I will be completely and totally exonerated on all charges.”

"I would like to know how he became a super delegate?"

From what I understand, in order to become a super delegate to the DNC, one only has to be brain-dead or just plain dead.

Interesting. Judge Townsend is supposedly the hardest judge around those parts - the closest thing Michigan has to a “hanging judge.”:

Guess that approach doesn’t apply to indicted mayors, though.

I hope that McCain runs a lot of ads linking Barack Obama to Jennifer Granholm and Kwame Kilpatrick.

Here's the video of the hearing where the judge lifted the travel restrictions. This is the face of corruption. Obviously, there was a payoff to this corrupt Judge Townsend.

Seems like the bottom of the democrat barrel is pretty crowded. Swing a stick at a democrat event and you're likely to hit several criminals.
