A judge has sentenced former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to from one-and-a-half to five years in prison for violating the terms of his probation on an obstruction of justice conviction.

Kilpatrick was led from the courtroom in handcuffs.

Maybe Zero will grant him asylmu from prison as he did his ILLEGAL, CRIMINAL, estranged Aunt. She should have been DEPORTED years ago. I wonder ... will she ever have to pay back the MONEY she STOLE from LEGAL CITIZENS for living off us in housing and food?

It’s about time! I am sick and tired of political criminals, yes, criminals, getting away with their crimes, playing stupid and living like kings queens off the taxpayers’ back. And the “racism” has
already begun.

What I want to know is what is the FBI up too...

Monica Conyers, wife of Rep. John Conyers is going to the big house too.

Mama Kilpatrick was given a Subpoena to testify back in Feb. I believe.

When will Detroit be rid of this scum.

I want to know if and when Reps. Conyers and Kilpatrick will be in the hot seat.....

He didn’t need to use that card. He had some supporters
on the court steps outside and another stupid voter
used it.

From The Detroit News: Kwame Kilpatrick's attorney argues that Kwame's recently purchased million
dollar home in Southlake, Texas, is necessary because as a $120,000 a year salesperson, Kwame must
"function in the upper echelons of society."

Kwame Kilpatrick.

I wonder if the illegal auntie also has a number of Social Security numbers—like NObama has.

How will he be able to keep up the payments on a million dollar house if he is in the slammer.

ALSO—HOW did he purchase a million dollar house on a annual salary of $120,000.?

That does compute.

Maybe we should take a look at the earmarks of his Congresswoman mother?

To function in the higher echelons, I think Kwame ought to get his teeth fixed, too. Either that or get his upper lip lowered.
