Recapping the latest events surrounding Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick here in June 2008 for your amusement. Where to even begin? Kwame’s lead attorney Sam McCargo quits. And reason being: he feels ethically challenged now that he is aware of the scandalous behaviors of the mayor. Wow! A miracle! After being paid thousands of dollars, and after arguing that Kwame’s text messages paid for by public funds were somehow exempt… he now MAGICALLY feels pulled by the call of his own conscience. Yah big surprise. We here are really empathic. (No actually we are not, just being facetious…) Lawyer Down-Lo Here.
The Kwame quote of the year (Detroit News). “When you really think about it, from 1776 to 2008, men, women of all ages, colors and creeds died in this country for Kwame Kilpatrick and you to have the right to a fair trial. So it’s not about the politics as much as it is about the American jurisprudence system that we can’t allow to be bastardized.”
Nice. And why does that last word seem to fitting yet so out of context coming from Kwame???? Video below:
We also learned this month that Kwame is everyone’s favorite “BOO”… literally that is. Video: Kwame Get’s “Boo’ed” on the news here, and another below:
But everyone’s favorite video this month is: MONICA CONYERS GETS ETIQUETTE LESSONS FROM 12 YEAR OLD (Daily Kos Article) Everyone jumped up and applauded on this one. And the funniest part- it’s completely true! In a recent interview Conyers decides to debate children in what appears an attempt to justify her historically bad behaviors. But they weren’t buying it! Check it out below:
Of course it’s really no big surprise the trial is further delayed thanks to the improprietous relations District Judge Giles has with Kilpatrick. That coupled with Sharon McFail’s ongoing efforts to kabash the trial regardless. She now likens Kwame’s interrogation to the 1950’s Red Scare Prosecution scandal. How abysmal! Not really worth linking to since no one listens to Sharon but here ya go…..
And lastly, a “report card” of current city authorities by Free Press writer Brian Dickerson “Grading Detroit…” There is more drama going on in Detroit City than on all the soap opera’s on prime time television.
