A Tiara? Detroit Mayor Continues To Lose Credibility

After Monica Conyers ridiculous attack on council members Jo Ann Watson, Sheila Cockrel and of course, her famous “name calling” to President Ken Cockrel that he was “Shrek”…. today she (again) appears on national news criticizing the other members of city council (again). The City Council opted to obtain Kwame’s new “expense and budget” plan for spending taxpayer funds in writing (VIDEO). Yet Monica Conyers touts to the news that this was a “bad” thing to do. However, analysts say it was in fact the most prudent thing the City Council could do under the circumstances. Perhaps Monica overlooked what the other 80,000 folks witnessed during this government address, which is that Kwame has no credibility in the first place (by his own actions indeed), and in the second place appearing with a supporter (an advocate of Kilpatrick’s who happens to also be on city council currently)—whom was dressed in a princess gown with a TIARA.  Yes, on live broadcast news for the world to witness. Perhaps Monica has also forgotten that she herself was the FIRST ONE demanding the Mayor’s resignations. People are curious as to what caused Monica Conyers’ sudden, dramatic turnaround….  

Tiara?

The City Council simply preferred to see factually, with substantiation on paper, Kilpatrick’s spending plan agenda so as to review it. And frankly, is it appropriate for someone in a professional public role to arrive with a tiara on one’s head? Is city business relegated now to a “costume” party? Let’s be honest, if any regular citizen were to walk into 5th Third Bank vying for a loan to spend the BANKS MONEY, with a tiara on their head, they probably WOULD NOT be taken seriously. Likewise, why should anyone take Kwame or his supporters seriously given the facts and history at hand? Public comment reveals that people feel the council is acting wisely to see things in writing as opposed to just hearing it and assuming it is true. After all, over 40,000 text messages show what was really going on behind the scenes. It is clear nothing can be taken for granted anymore when it comes to the Mayor, not even basic ethics.  

But apparently, the Mayor is still wondering why no one is interested in anything he has to say anymore and more people are calling for his resignation (VIDEO). Hmmm….after 8 felony indictments, millions of losses for the city due to his own PERSONAL spending, nepotistic practices, philandering, and mismanagement, ya think? It is also rather unfair for the Mayor to expect to be treated differently than HE HIMSELF WOULD TREAT someone who behaved as disreputably. More double standard? Everyone has seen first hand how the Mayor has mis-handled his role as a leader and violated public trust on every level.

Time Magazine said 2 years ago Kwame needs to grow up. He is still not listening. Related videos on local news here. What Lou Dobbs has to share also here and via search on CNN page.
