I heard he has a million dollar fine. Wow, as a poor democrat can he afford that? bwahahaha...
Looks like the “Pimp Mayor” just got pimped.
Is a felony conviction disqualifying for a Detroit mayor? Or is it a resume enhancer?

What were the good citizens of Motor City thinking??? Obvioulsy not too much.
They got the government they asked for-maybe they have learned a good lesson in politics.
God Bless and MOLON LABE!!!
4 months in jail, 5 years probation, not to run for or hold public office during probation period. Sentencing Oct. 28. Loses law license.
“Loses law license.”
Don’t tell me, does Harvard have another stain on its Alumni directory
The Democratic Culture of Corruption and an Obama stupidelegate no less. This fact should be disseminated far and wide.
well it doesn’t say republican five times in the article so he must be a democrat...
How soon before this felon can vote again?
In Detroit it is an enhancer.
I’d bet the farm he eventually runs for the office again and is elected once again
I don’t get this. He did not think he could get the jury to nullify?
I also want to know, did he LOSE his Superdelegate status (he was a DNC Superdelegate) or did he just not get to go to the convention?
Resume enhancer for inner city folks. Just ask Marion Berry.
Now that he is out who takes his office, does anyone know?
He is destined for a great career in the democrat party.
“Is a felony conviction disqualifying for a Detroit mayor? Or is it a resume enhancer”?
...it’s an enhancer, but he can only dream of being 1/2 the scum of Mayor Marion Barry. Nice to have goals though!
Who gone be turnin in tha votes for Obama now?
So that means five years and two months from now, he’ll be re-elected to another term as mayor in Detroit, right?
Head of City Council, Kenneth V. Cockrel Jr. will assume the mayor’s position. Which leaves Monica Conyers, wife of John Conyers (D), to assume head of City Council. Oh Joy!/S
“In Detroit it is an enhancer.
Id bet the farm he eventually runs for the office again and is elected once again”
The black folks in Detroit will vote for a black candidate, regardless of his or her record. But that’s not racist.
90% of blacks will vote Obama, but that’s not racist.
I’m white and totally fed up with this stuff. Apparently, that IS racist.
And surrender his pension? WOW!
Kwame a river.
Isn’t he the one Monica Conyers called Shrek a little while ago?
I am guessing that the council and Mayor’s office will still have problems.
God, what a jackass.
Ella Bully Cummings resigned also. Every time I saw and heard her talk, the “Bully” was apparent.
Can't he appeal that, plus losing his law license? If so, perhaps he'll get one or both back somewhere down the road. I'd hate to see that, but you know how the system is when it comes to catering to scumbags.
Did you not hear?... AFTER this deal was finally settled last night...then and only THEN...Barry made the decisive call for Kwame to resign!!!! Now thats what I call LEADERSHIP!(??)
Its qualifies for a slot in the NBA.
Bad day for Democrats all across the Fruited Plain.
Kwame has two weeks to remain mayor under the plea deal. He’ll supposedly work with incoming Cockrel (Sheila Cockrel’s stepson) during those two weeks to smooth the transition.
This ain’t over, folks. During the hearing Kwame was shaking his head and muttering “I did’t do it.” He STILL believes he’s the one wronged and there’s a lot of anger swaggering around in his bulky frame, looking for an outlet. Ask the police officers trying to serve Ferguson with a subponea. There’s a lot of damage Kwame can do before the cuffs are slapped on him.
don’t give up just yet....there is still a dead hooker out there, and I think that is where all of this is heading......keep tuned in
Or Kwameeee got pwnd. (is that how you say it?)
it’s all over but for the rioting.

Good bye Kwamilla!
Yeah, I’m a racist too.
I don’t favor amnesty for illegals, extra rights for blacks or homosexuals. And this cultural diversity thing is crap.
Yeah, gotta love that “Hip Hop Mayor”...don’t worry, the good voters of Detroit will inflict another abomination upon themselves, probably one endorsed by the former Hizzoner!
$1,000,000 fine? I guess he had his community organized to the hilt.
In January, the Free Press published text messages Kilpatrick and Beatty exchanged on city-issued pagers. The article showed the pair lied under oath when they testified in a police whistle-blower trial last year that they did not have an intimate relationship. They also gave misleading testimony about the firing of a top police official, Gary Brown. Nelthrope was another cop who sued with Brown, both alleging their careers were ruined because of their involvement in an internal affairs investigation that could have led to the discovery of extramarital philandering by Kilpatrick.
Worthy cited the Free Press investigation in March, when she charged Kilpatrick with eight felonies and Beatty with seven. The charges included perjury, conspiracy, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office.
For this he gets 4 months??? and the no contest to felonius assault???
much less the complete and total corruption of how city contracts were awarded.
This guy should be locked up for life - with his equally corrupt Mom.
So when does OCP take over “New Detroit?”
Kwami should not have conducted an affair at work. That was his biggest mistake, but then, its all to the good.
His squeeze Christine Beatty made him enemies that would not give up.
Kevin James, on his radio show, just played an audio bite of Obama praising Kwame, and saying how he looks forward to a long future working with him. He said he’s looking forward to Kwame doing astonishing things. (Not verbatim.)
Another unholy union he can add to Ayers, Rev. Wright, et al. He’s not real good at choosing his associates.
