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?
