Exhibits: Kilpatrick’s Chief Counsel Colbert-Osamuede Selling Fashizzle to Judge Robert Columbo

More spiel from Kwame Kilpatrick’s legal council at Detroit city offices. Just yesterday, on April 4th, Chief Corporate Council Assistant, Valerie Colbert-Osamuede, sends this fashizzle letter to Judge Robert Columbo about why “she forgot about” approving payment of over 8 million dollars of taxpayer money to keep Mike Stefani (and the fired DCP ) under wraps. Her letter appears an attempt to retract what could be seen as further perjurious statements from the Kilpatrick administration, now spewed under the unconvicing auspice of “gee, so sorry, I just didn’t remember that 8 million dollars“.

Will Judge Robert Columbo actually buy into this as justification? We hope not. Because guess what? She also attempts to mislead by erroneously citing every date EXCEPT… the most relevant one:

… the court asked questions directly of me on the record at the January 25th, 2008 hearing… I have discovered the brief and my answers did not fully reflect all the circumstances…. My memory of the October 17th, 2007 document was refreshed only when that document was produced as an exhibit….” Letter to Judge Columbo – PDF

Um, you mean this document? The one with your signature on it dated OCTOBER 18, 2007 the very next day? The approval document that, so far, you have still failed to own up to and that City Council claims they never saw the “secret agreement” for per your iteration of “confidential attorney client privilege” in the memo (below)? The document with your RECOMMENDATION that paying 8 million dollars was “in the best interest of the city“, which directs the finance department to cut a check, and that bears the additional signature of co-fashizzler John Johnson?

Yeah her answer STILL doesn’t “fully reflect all the circumstances”. In January 2008 Valierie Colbert-Osameude stated on record to the public and the press she “was unaware of any confidential agreements” when queried on this incident. Upon the rigorous pursuit of documentation by the Free Press however, it was found in fact: she not only participated in it, she negotiated it, signed it and recommended it (as above). Yet in her own letter to Judge Robert Columbo she asserts the document sent to her via e-mail from Mike Stefani on October 31st was inadvertently sent so she was “exempt” from knowledge. Is she kidding??? Read her spiel letter carefully (linked below) and note how she spins the events occurring on these the dates; then compare them to the events presented in the above DATED approval memo:

Colbert-Osamuede's April 4th Letter to Judge Robert Columbo

Right! As you can see, there is still absolutely no mention of the the issue at hand, or the facts remaining which are: she in full knowledge willfully and purposefully participated in WRITING OFF 8 MILLION DOLLARS. There is absolutely no mention of the most relevant date, October 18th 2007 in context of it being the date of legal execution committed by her own hand. No, instead she wants to carry on about her “inbox” and a bunch of other convoluted crap to divert everyone’s attention. Another schemer and a lier? Do the math.

Homo Erectus Not Extinct; Hunter-Gathering of Political Allies Lives On

Homo Erectus, the precursor to Homo Sapien (the modern human) were known as hunter-gatherers and for developing extended societal roots. Anthropologists believed them to be one of the first of hominids to live in band societies, and ultimately brought to extinction through natural selection and the course of evolution.

From a recent comment submitted regarding the unbearable situation for Detroit:

“…Here we see Homo Erectus is not exinct… the hunting and gathering of political allies lives on in Kwame Kilpatrick’s administration….  This was in response to the latest news about Judge Giles’ (the judge conducting initial trial on the case) and his history with Kwame Kilpatrick. News reports that not only does Judge Giles’ wife, Joyce Hayes-Giles, have personal ties with Kilpatrick’s administration, but also that she had Kilpatrick’s current Deputy Chief of Staff (Eddie McDonald) and Kilpatrick’s former campaign manager (Jamaine Dickens) work on her own 2007 campaign for Vice President of the Detroit School Board; a position she still holds. (Sidenote: This is the same school board by the way that also has child abuser Reverend David Hayes among its meritorious members.)

Political consultant Sam Riddle observed that the Hayes-Giles’ political connections raise questions:

“For the judge to say he has no connection with the mayor when his wife has worked with those individuals, it’s a bit misleading.” – Free Press April 4th, 2008 

Yes, and most would also add that Judge Giles himself contributed to Kilpatrick’s campaign additionally, which lends further discredit to impartiality. Does it not? Commentators on the Free Press respond with exclamation “CALL IN THE FEDS!” because there is no way any judge in the local district can competently trial this case whatsoever; it is known that all of them are tied, one way or other, to Kilpatrick’s “extended family” administration.

And this is why, and a very VALID reason why Wayne County Prosecutor’s office seeks to obtain exemption of the 36th District judges; i.e.: for a FAIR trial without underlying political agenda’s impeding the interests of JUSTICE, without further exploitation of the City of Detroit whose residents are PAYING for it.

Duh. Impartial judges are needed.

Then too, exploiting relationships is not new to Kwame. After all, yet again today it was announced that Kwame’s good buddy Bobby Ferguson is now under investigation by the City of Detroit for obtaining (repeatedly) million dollar contracting jobs. People want to know how it happened that coincidentally, all these bids were awarded to the SAME person? Did a bidding process occur for equal opportunity? 

Gee, what do YOU think happened?  Perhaps the oompa-loompa’s depicted above say it best.

Kwame Quote of the Day From Larry Elder’s Mailbag: Kwame Needs Kleenex

The mayor, resorting to the time-honored tradition of blaming everything and everybody but global warming and the Loch Ness monster, said, ‘In the past 30 days, I’ve been called a nigger more than any time in my entire life.’ He then talked about receiving death threats, and blamed the media for its unfair focus on his activities and for the scrutiny’s impact on his family. ‘ … I don’t believe that a Nielsen rating is worth the life of my children or your children.’  Please, pass the Kleenex.”  – Larry Elder, Townhall.com

Yup yup. Kudos Larry Elder! PS: we’re all looking for our mini violins right now to go along with the kleenex too….

Governor Granholm Still Dances Around Kwame Kilpatrick Scandal

political dancing

Governor Granholm has been seen as “waffly” about taking a stance on the Kwame Kilpatrick scandal. This just in: Kwame wants her job! The funniest article ever, posted a few days ago, “Embattled Mayor Will Run for Governor“.

“I’m young, I’m strong, and I’m sexy,” Mr. Kilpatrick said in a prepared statement following his arraignment on Monday. “I can’t seem to stop my brilliant career from bouncing off the guardrails—this is the most important of the many reasons I would be a great governor.” – Posted on: Smith Is My Real Name (kudos to Smith by the way)

Many would believe (and expect) such audacity by Mayor Kilpatrick, especially considering that Governor Granholm will not take action against him for his many wrongdoings, when she has the power to do so. Letters have been written to Governor Granholm by people from all over the state, calls have been made, not to mention the public voicing their opinions on the web everywhere.

General comments made by the public reveal the overwhelming feeling that Governor Granholm is not doing her job (see public remarks here also). It has been suggested (and perhaps accurately so) that staking her “ethical” highground NO WHERE on this issue indicative of her own political agendas, which could be undermined should she cast her vote in the wrong direction. Everyone knows the State of Michigan would be best served if higher governing officials (like Governor Granholm?) stepped in to stop the Kwameunism. But then, heaven forbid a politician sacrifice popularity (perceived or imagined).

Bill Ballenger, publisher of the Inside Michigan Politics newsletter, speculated that Granholm would not attempt to oust Kilpatrick because it would damage her politically in Detroit, where she’d be viewed as an interloper. – Mayor’s Foes Seeking Help From Granholm

Today, a letter from her offices was posted sharing her official response to the matter of the increasing public outrage that Kwame has inspired:

Dear Constituent, Thank you for sharing your concerns about the ongoing controversy surrounding Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some comments the Governor has made on this important issue

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has conducted an investigation into this matter which has resulted in the filing of criminal charges against Mayor Kilpatrick. As the former Michigan Attorney General and a former federal prosecutor I believe it is critical that the legal process be allowed to work. Therefore, I will not interfere, by comment or action, in this criminal proceeding. Also, because the law establishes a potential role for me in this matter, I cannot and will not comment in any way that might compromise the criminal justice process.”

Again, thank you for contacting our office about this issue. Kelly Lloyd – Constituent Services Division – Office of Governor Jennifer M. Granholm

Yet, her action of “NON-ACTION” in reality serves to challenge public confidence in her leadership. From the people’s perspective: “ignoring it is enabling it“. People don’t seem satisfied with the “neutral” response as indicated in the above letter from her offices, and are wondering if anyone “up there” is paying attention.

For reference, there is a new petition being circulated on the recall Kwame site: RecallKwame.org. Anyone even those outside of Detroit or Michigan can sign this petition. Additional contact to local and state leaders can be made via the below:

Residence Inn: The Ho’s Hotel? And Kwame’s Bullying

What is it with the Residence Inn? Yet another philanderer escaping from the Residence Inn HO-tel; Thomas Athans, the husband of Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow, and co-founder of the TalkUSA radio network. (More at CNN )

Athans was pulled over by police on I-75 minutes after leaving the Residence Inn on Livernois, just east of I-75 and south of Big Beaver, the evening of Feb. 26. He was driving a Cadillac DeVille registered jointly to him and Stabenow at their address in Lansing.He was ticketed for driving on a suspended license. When questioned during the stop, he acknowledged he had been at the hotel with a woman he met on the Internet. On further questioning, he acknowledged he had paid the woman $150 for sex. Free Press 

And by now everyone knows Kwame’s preference for the Residence Inn:

Beatty: OK, I’m feeling like I want another night like the most recent Saturday at the Residence Inn! You made me feel so damn good that night. … Kilpatrick: I feel that we can do that in WV (West Virginia)+ just relax together. I need you soooo bad. I want to wake up in the morning and you are there. Make it happen.

 But why should we be surprised at the continued unraveling of Michigan government? After all, just today one of Kwame Kilpatrick’s appointed Detroit SCHOOL BOARD Members is charged with child abuse and his children removed from the family home. Did we forget to mention his name is “REVEREND“??? (Detroit News Headline – April, 2 2008) But that sort of thing probably doesn’t concern Kwame Kilpatrick. After all  his fashizzle in the City of Detroit, he was sure to “make it happen” that:  NONE of HIS OWN kids go to Detroit schools. No, they go to fancy private schools instead and socialize with the type of people Kwame’s less than 100 friend and family supporters are flaming. The taxpayers that Kwame steals from. Kwame’s double standard and divisiveness is utterly reprehensible.

Like: the recent ploy of having his lackey’s issue a memo to all the EMPLOYEES of the city bullying Detroiter’s not to “talk bad ’bout Kwame“. Then after the fact, his office denies anything to do with it. Except everyone knew it was a bunch of smack because curiously enough, the memo directed anyone with information about “anti-kwame” speak to CALL KWAME’S OFFICE and report it. Yeah ok. In case anyone is interested in signing up, Kwame even gave his latest media effort a name. It’s called: The Kilpatrick Media Watch Campaign.

“The kicker is that while they are using their own e-mail addresses, the telephone number they issued rings in the mayor’s office….”

Did we forget to mention the “Kilpatrick Media Watch Campaign” was spearheaded by Kwame’s cousin (one of about 20 employed by the city)???

Newsflash folks, the reality: Here’s what Detroiters and Michigan Resident’s Have To Say About Defending Kwame …..

And as a sidenote, Kwame is still pushing for his “300 million” dollar casino based economic stimulus “fund” (oops, we meant to say plan). Except the City Council of Detroit is not interested, nor listening to him, because they have all voted that he should step down and resign. Along with the City of Detroit’s largest employee’s union that have just about unanimously called for Kwame’s resignation.

Hip Hop Mayor Sing-A-Long

There’s been alot of discussion going on surrounding the forthcoming trial of Kwame Kilpatrick. Kym Worthy was interviewed recently; she was to the point (see the first link in the player on right side of the linked page). We like Kym. And, there’s also alot of hubris; like the interview with Kilpatrick’s general counsel McPhail posted yesterday. The funniest part of the interview is after all the legalese of “why the prosecution is in the wrong”, the interviewer point blank asked McPhail, “ok, so you’re saying those aren’t his text messages?” Right.
