If being corrupt gets you kicked out of being mayor of detroit, then explain Coleman Young's run.

That wistle-blower lawsuit cost city taxpayers $9MILLION (without the text messages)
Michael Cox should go after him for perjury charges if Kim Worthy won't.
He's an attorney. He should at least get disbarred.
When will the citizens of Detroit raise their standards?

http://www.agcmi.com/pages/RequestInvestigation.html file a complaint

may not have to though, that link indicates that the board may initiate their own investigation via information they receive through other routes including news articles.

that being said, it seems that a total disbarring is so unusual as to almost not ever happen.

e.g.
I know of a fairly prominent (and obnoxious) attorney that is also a cpa that was only temporarily suspended for "misuse" of trust funds... (if I recall the sentencing from the review board, there was multiple six figures worth of restitution, but not only was it a temporary suspension, but somehow he never faced criminal charges...)

Kilpatrick 's personal life is between him and his wife. People make mistakes and sometimes use extremely poor judgment, this case is an example of that.

I would think the prosecutors office would have plenty of real cases to keep them busy.

Instead of trying to pillar Kwayme for his personal indiscretion try to be sensitive to the fact that that this is really a personal matter between his family.

The media blasting him for this is little more than a family embarrassment and a distraction from the real issues that the major of Detroit needs to be working on.

Yeah, he will fight it to the end and waste more taxpayers money, they say he could get "disbarred" if convicted, that would be a good thing

bullshit.

this case is far more than a personal matter between himself, and a long going indescretion.

yes, people do make mistakes, and when they learn from them, and are genuinely contrite then people should move on. Kwame has not demonstrated any of that, remorse or anything.

the case/perjury involved a legal proceeding on a whistle blower case. two men lost their career's over the ego of this giant egotistical man ape. it's one thing to lose it due to downsizing. it's another to lose it to a cocky, arrogant, egotistical, maniacal, god-playing heap of crap that needs to be knocked off of his pedestal.

oh, and the internal affairs investigation that resulted in their firings? wasn't it over the 'mysterious' death of a stripper at one of kwame's parties? again I say this has nothing to do with the fact that there was a personal matter/relationship. It does have plenty to do with the fact that he is completely immoral, unethical, and went to great lengths to interfere with a criminal internal affairs investigation...

he should be not only charged/tried for perjury, but should also face the Michigan Bar's Attorney Discipline Board.

people bitch about the government, then somehow have no problem with someone like this in office? no wonder the country is going to hell

Are you serious?

I'm not going to shred you on this because you live on the west side, so in effect you don't hear of most of the regular bullshit he pulls, of which there has been more than plenty. It's regular news over here.

He's a public official. He blatantly lied under oath. He is held to a higher standard because of his position, and should realize that. He's immature for the position he's in and has shown over and over that he puts himself first and the city second.

1. The Escalade, leased using city money for his wife.
2. The dead stripper, after the party at the mansion.
3. The whole whistleblower fiasco. Millions that the city has to pay for that.
4. Spending of city funds for his personal bullshit.
5. Now the perjury deal.

Every member of his staff is an old buddy of his. Christina Beatty has drawn attention to herself before trying to "Pull Rank" when being pulled over for breaking traffic laws, and illegal parking, cuz she's entitled working for the mayor. Her attitude on TV has always shown how big of a bitch she can be.

His publicity guy, some white dude named Matt, registering his cars outside of the city so he can enjoy normal insurance rates. DUI's, and knocking his old lady around when he was lit up round off his list of activities. Not to mention he's just an all around odd cat.

When I, or any regular person breaks the law, we have to answer for it. This isn't a first mistake for him.

And while those facts may be well established, they are not relevant to a case of marital infidelity. I realize he was oath bound to speak only the truth .. but let's be honest .. he has a wife and kids and they asked him where he was putting his ding dong. No kidding he lied .. as would anyone else in the same situation.

I'm not excusing, in any way, his conduct .. I'm merely pointing out that private lives should be private.

Relentless media snooping into the personal lives of politicians is just one more reason why good people steer clear of public service. And that's a shame.

he made it public when he and his mistress decided to break various laws, and then conspire to cover them up...

he further made it public by discussing, and drilling her in an official capacity, on official, publicly purchased/paid for services.

Really, it sure sounds like you are based off this post and the previous one in this thread.

Look, if Kwaumee was doing a kick-ass job, I don't know how many would care where he stuffs it.

The problem is that he keeps doing shady stuff and never gets busted. Some of us are just sick of it and want to see him held accountable for once.

This is SO much more than a case of marital infidelity. It's a case of being responsible for your actions. (Which gl4x4 threads seem to be specializing in lately... ) And it would appear that some of those actions have turned criminal. Do I feel bad for his family? Certainly I do. Is that the fault of the media? No, that's squarely on his shoulders.

I'm not a fan of the media, but this is NOT the fault of the media.

You have a right to know how your tax dollars are spent, sure. You don't have a right to know details of someones personal life.

Why not discuss his policies on Cobo, blight, etc .. You know, grown-up talk!
