Detroit has been shaken by claims of lurid conduct and a cover-up at city hall.
He is an ordinary 15-year-old boy who wants to know what happened to his murdered mother. Yet Jonathan Bonds painful and protracted quest for justice has plunged him into the heart of an explosive political scandal that has shaken Detroit ...
Bond is the son of Tamara Greene, a statuesque black stripper known as Strawberry, whose murder in 2003 triggered an avalanche of sordid allegations about mayoral misconduct, police cover-ups, aromatic bubble baths, lurid text messages, extramarital affairs and a talking turtle.
The case pits Kwame Kilpatrick, the charismatic 37-year-old mayor of one of Americas most blighted metropolises, against a teenage plaintiff whose white lawyer, Norman Yatooma, has an unusually personal stake in the outcome.
Yatooma told The Sunday Times: No reasonable compassionate person could look at Jonathan and turn away. This is a kid who had the world in front of him and had everything ripped up beneath him.
Yatooma knows exactly how that feels. Fifteen years ago his father was murdered in Detroit when he tried to intervene in a carjacking. His killers have never been found and Yatooma has devoted much of his career to helping the children of murdered parents.
At the heart of the Kilpatrick case is a hotly disputed account of a supposed party at Manoogian Mansion, the city-owned home on the Detroit River that is the mayors official residence. It was there in late 2002, according to court documents, that Strawberry was hired to perform at a raucous party allegedly attended by Kilpatrick, several police officers and nude exotic dancers.
At one point, the court documents allege, Kilpatricks wife, Carlita, arrived at the party unexpectedly and assaulted Tamara Greene and possibly one other dancer.

the Kwamification of Detroit
Good Lord, strippers and guns and government funds. What is with these people?
May 2007, Barack Obama, who called Kilpatrick a “great mayor” who is doing an “outstanding job,” also said that Kilpatrick “is going to be doing astounding things for many years to come.”
Color me astounded.
We hope this nightmare will end sometime this week when the Governor decides whether to boot him from office. If he does not make a plea deal with the Prosecutor before the Governor ousts him he loses his bargaining power. He has made an offer to plead guilty to a couple felony counts, 5 years of probation, loss of law license and can’t run for office for two years. She turned him down and said her deal includes some jail time. I won’t be happy till this thug is behind bars.
(Do I really need a sarc tag?)
“This is not the Kwame Kilpatrick I know!”
OK, now I'm interested.
By the way, he is wearing a tether and cannot leave the state. Much to my dismay, a judge ordered that he couldn’t travel to the Democratic National Convention.

“Forget it, Jack — it’s Chinatown...”
I was in Detroit today. I didn’t think it was possible for Detroit to be worse than it was, but it sure has gotten even worse than when I was last in Detroit.
Detroit is just another typical Democrat parasite nest. They are littered across the country and account for most of the little blue (Democrat) areas on this map:
Talking Turtle (last sentence): “Detroit television station WXYZ reported that, the weekend before the story broke, the mayor went to Asheville, N.C., to deliver an inspirational Martin Luther King Day address to a local civic organization. Neither Kilpatrick’s wife nor Beatty have said that they went — but hotel staff told the television station that the mayor and his “girlfriend” enjoyed a two-hour couple’s massage, complete with an “aromatic bubble bath,” champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. The mayor’s massage tab: $504. The TV station said the woman gave her name as “Carmen Slowski,” an apparent reference to the name of a talking turtle in Comcast cable ads.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/15/AR2008021503541_3.html
Maybe it was a guy who shelled out money.
(Or maybe not!)
I agree. A travesty. One of Obama’s biggest supporters is the Hip Hop “artist” Ludicris. He basically told all the white bitches to step aside, its Obama’s turn. “Luda” also wants McCain crippled. Nice culture we live in. Obama actually listens to this piece of scum on his Ipod. He also allows his young daughters to listen to Snoop Dog. Are those Snoop’s love ballads? No wonder we’re going into the sewer.
Yeah, I was really hoping America's "Hip-Hop" mayor would show up in Denver with his diamond earrings, pimp suit and "posse" of bodyguards and sell Obama to white soccer moms across the country.
How’s the mayor going to explain Carmen Slowski?
the folks down in Asheville North Carolina are really angry about the hotel tab Kwame and Carman Slowski ran up there.
Kwame was invited to speak at a Martin Luther King Prayer Breakfast for young people in Asheville. His expenses were paid by the MLK organization.
The MLK organization has said that they will charge back to Kwame any expenses not related to his speech.
The third-worldification of America continues unabated.
