The city is stuck paying for that regardless of what he said about who he was sleeping with.

My bitch in all this is that he should be investigated/fined/shot/whatever based on his job performance.

"job performance" is not typically something that is subject to prosecution unless it reaches the point of gross malfeasance or blatant corruption.

in a way this is related to his performance. he claimed he didn't fire those two officers. the text messages indicate he perjured himself on that as well as where he stuck his 3rd leg...

Baloney. In addition to the 9 mil, how much taxpayer money was spent to fight the lawsuit? How much would have been saved if he had just came clean at the start of this whole mess and worked out a deal?

You got to love how some people make KK & CB out to be the victims here. They both decided to do immoral things while on the taxpayers dime. Today we’ve come to expect and accept such behavior. If all they did was to have a affair and it effected no one else but themselves and not their job performance, then yes it is not really anyone’s business. But they conspired to cover up their tracks by firing people and lying under oath about it. THEY chose to do that! THEY are not victims! Their selfish actions caused harm to their families, harm to others and to hurt the city itself. They have only themselves to blame and Detroit got stuck with the bill! Since he lied he should have to repay the taxpayers all the legal fees and pay the judgement for 9 mil out of his own pocket!

Well, usually when performance gets that bad they are promoted up the food chain.

when out of town and people asked "where you from" i'd say detroit and try and take the position that it's not as bad as the media protray. not anymore. kk represents the city and the region. reading this on drudge, thousands who view detroit as crap-town will have their belief confirmed. if he lied under oath, how can we trust what he sez on any other topic? and you guys are right, it's not about a private family matter, it's about covering up the truth.

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.

I want to call you an idiot, but I think you are not fully aware of this "personal" issue for Kwam.

Because of his affair with this chick, he FIRED 2 cops! He FIRED them because they were doing thier job investigating! He has been waisting taxpayer dollars friverously! And lying about it the whole time!

Please pick up the Detroit Freepress and read some articles, and don't leave out the editorials, especially the one by Henerson.

WTF! He's a LAWYER and is lieing in court!

I couldn't care less where his dick has been....

BUT

The perjury case involves both KK and CB stating that they had nothing to do with the police firings, yet there are text messages discussing just that.

That, and that alone, is enough to bring this to trial.

They did a poll on a local Deeetroit radio station today that had the following results:
80 some percent said he should just appoligize and its all good.....????
60 some percent said he should NOT be indited for perjury?????

IMO all those who voted this guy into office are getting exactly what they deserve and asked for.

they are all the same

I cant even believe you're serious. It blows my fucking mind that you can believe that perjury by an elected official is a "personal life" issue.

Apparently Im done with the internet today. Any more of this and my fucking head will explode.

I dont think anything will happen to him. You white people should stop trying to bring down a successful black man. :miff:

I honestly think his misdeeds are too much of a badge of honor to the keepin it real in the manoogian mansion voters, and the DAs office is probably intimidated.
Kim Worthy disappointed me this morning. I don't know why I hoped she had a shred of integrity.
