Kilpatrick’s “Detroit Justice Fund” INVALID – (Boo-Yah)

Just in from the Free Press, a local man from St. Clair registered the name “DETROITJUSTICEFUND” with the State of Michigan; for $20.00. Unbelievably, for the $750 dollar an hour Kwame is paying Webb plus the other millions of dollars it is costing for him to retain the other dozen or so on his defense team, NONE OF THEM REGISTERED THE NAME with the state.

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s legal defense fund has suffered its second setback in the week since the mayor announced its creation. … A St. Clair Shores man said he plunked down $20 with the state of Michigan to register the name the “Detroit Justice Fund,” which Kilpatrick had said he would use as the name of the account he would use to collect cash to defray the sizeable legal expenses he is anticipating as he defends himself from 8 felony counts.

I cannot believe it’s not BUTTER! Hello? If you are organizing as a non-profit (which they did) and you are publically SOLICITING money from the public, don’t you know you need to also register your name with the state?

Even funnier, the kind of “donations” Kwame Kilpatrick has been receiving from the public:

Kilpatrick's recent defense fund contributions....

Sherman said he has already received two contributions. The first consisted of a snarky note, a penny and $100,000 in monopoly money. Today, he said, “We got one more letter, enclosing a coupon good for Chuck E. Cheese and suggesting his mother take him there.”

Reality: Now He’s MalcolmX?

Folks a bit miffed at DetNews.com for unfairly implicating Kwame Kilpatrick has more supporters than he actually does. The original headline posted around 10PM first read “1,000’s Attend Rally” to support Kwame, when people know full well, that is not the case; nor can the building of the Black Madonna Church hold that amount of people to begin with. The headline is now changed.

But more annoying, was the absence of clarifying that: This was NOT an “open to the public event”, rather, an event choreographed and sponsored by Kwame and team for support, not the least of which included the welcoming of donations. Commentators of this article remarked “please DON’T put a private invite only event on TV” as if it were freely open to all of the public. Which it was not. Much of the media was not invited in either. Other than those that could assure a positive review in favor of Kwame’s “victimization” by the rest of society; which includes everyone in the country except the few hundred (NOT THOUSANDS as spun by the press), who want to believe the man is exempt from the law. But even more insulting, (yes really it is), Kwame goes so far as to compare himself to Malcolm X (what?) apparently to affix the notion he is a victim of the bad people of the State of Michigan, and not: his own calculated wrongdoings.

Comments here: No one believes Kwame’s hype…

The Original Article here: “What did I do wrong?….” Kilpatrick 

A Playor’s Defense Fund?

There are no words to describe how amazingly insidious this truly is. Kwame fanagles for himself a defense fund, as a NON profit organization? What?????

And in the same article, lengthy commentators remarked on the presumed support of Judge Mathis (famous TV celebrity) and outcried against it. I did too! Because he could not possibly be a real judge if he can attempt to overlook the overwhelming evidence of Kwame’s corrupt reigning in Detroit. But this just in: Mathis announces his NON support; encouraging Kilpatrick to resign.

Hooray! At least in some instances, playing the political game can be used to help the situation. Since we all know anyone on TV for any reason had better keep their ratings. But to give Mathis the benefit of the doubt; I’ll just say thanks for retracting whatever support was set forth (which appeared “official” as it was issued by Kilpatricks’ “defense fund” team).

An Unpopular Advocate

What a bunch of bunk. Ray Page’s meanderings opposing Kym Worthy for DOING HER JOB. Hello? We have a history of egregious behavior and notorious expenditures by Kilpatrick, a purported “leader” of the City of Detroit; a public official. We have a history of at least 7 years! Now because Page has already gone public with his backing of Portia Robinson for Wayne County prosecutor, he feels compelled to sell the world on an unfactual and very biased “pshaw” of Kym Worthy’s admirable efforts.

Note to self: Don’t vote Portia. Newsflash to Page: I don’t know anyone in Wayne county that would support your view and unmeritorious haranguing of Kym Worthy, the one person the city (perhaps the whole state) has that is at least ATTEMPTING to question the outrageous behaviors of Kilpatrick. We all know Mike Cox didn’t rise to the occasion either. Extremely disappointing.

And as to Huxley’s equally ridiculous “argument” under the auspice of “fair and balanced press”. Here’s another newsflash: it’s called FREE press. This means, anyone in the world, resident of MI or not, has the right to voice their opinion. It is of particular interest that you, the mouthpiece of Strategic Staffing Solutions has vested interest in keeping Kwame around; after all, who want’s to see their contracts cancelled should he be forced to resign right? Huxley would have been wise not to comment at all. Anyone can discover this company has every interest in keeping things status quo. Huxley is challenged to present real numbers, measurable improvements made for the City of Detroit that are NOT already overshadowed by Kwame’s past payouts, personal crisis, extravagant personal ventures etc. And no, considering his own balance sheet as a contractor for the city doesn’t qualify as a reflection of “city improvement” under the pseudo-leadership of Kilpatrick. Sorry. No one is buying it. At least not the hundred or so folks who commented within about 4 hours of the articles posting on Freep.

It’s Scammer Time

It’s Scammer TimeThankfully the city council is not allowing any further “BS” to impede investigation. Nor allowing defense assertions of hiding Kwame’s salami exploits behind the 1986 “communications act”  to impede the cause of the public. It is clear from around the country that everyone, absolutely everyone wants to put an end to “MC SCAMMER & Friends”.

Even a layperson knows the purported “defense” of hiding behind the communications act a flimsy facade, and no defense. Just a desperate attempt on behalf of Kilpatrick’s (well paid) relations who fear further exposure as to just how insidious Kilpatrick’s reign has actually been. The 1986 act was NEVER instituted as means for legal recourse to privileged, elected officials, to legalize exploitation of the public; nor intending amnesty for criminal behavors or provisions for “anonymity” of public officials. Pullease.

Don’t Read 8.4M Settlement?

Utterly inexcusable. So no one reads a settlement of 8.4 million payout of PUBLIC money? A settlement with the express intent of protecting Kilpatrick and covering up his already questionable record? Wtf.

In an interview (John Johnson Jr.) told the paper that at the time he approved only the payout amount and did not read the terms of the settlement, which described a plan to cover up text messages between Kilpatrick and Beatty that detailed their trysts and Brown’s removal….The newspaper later obtained a Law Department memo saying Johnson approved recommending to City Council members that they OK the $8.4-million deal. Contempt looms… 

Should we be surprised that Johnson is Kwame Kilpatrick’s cousin?

Is There Hope for Detroit?

Many thanks to Judge Columbo for being willing to do what a judge should be doing— which is: uphold the law and stand for the best interest of the citizens of this state. It is a misnomer to believe the impact of Kilpatrick’s behaviors and exploits are contained to the City of Detroit alone. In fact, this anti-leadership of Kilpatrick’s has negative impact upon the entire State of Michigan. Even on a purely human level, Kilpatrick’s behavior inspires disgust and outrage; his utter disregard of public welfare is historically seen, and has been allowed to continue.In no way can anyone convince the majority of MI residents (if not all of them at this point) that Kilpatrick is even remotely qualified to continue to hold public office. But perhaps there is hope for Michigan yet if other public officials, judges, governing agencies etc., stop selling out to political manipulations and do the job for which they are paid through taxpayer dollars. And that job is unquestionably: to serve the best interests of the common good – NOT the common criminal.
