To escape the poor light that he has been shown in, Detroit's mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is now trying to divert that light to Detroit's former mayor Dennis Archer.
After credit cards records showed that Kwame was "living la vida loca" at big city hotspots and drinking alcohol on Detroit taxpayers' tab, Kwame is having Detroit officials look for Archer's credit card records. Kind of the "look he did it too" approach.
I love this.
Kilpatrick has said he may reimburse the city for a bottle of Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial champagne that was purchased at Justin's.
He may? How generous of him to consider repaying the city of Detroit for a bottle of champagne when his actions were a violation of city policy.
This is good too.
He has also said his use of the credit card was proper and helped bring billions of dollars in development and tens of millions in federal dollars to Detroit. Records obtained by the Free Press under the Michigan Freedom of Information Act contain many deletions and few details about what the mayor ate and with whom.
I wonder who Kwame was eating and drinking with at P. Diddy's place to help bring billions of dollars in development to Detroit. Why won't Kwame disclose the business purpose of these "meetings" or who he was chowing down with?
