How will Kwame dig his way out?

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?

    When it comes to Kwame Kilpatrick, doesn't everybody know by now he is the epitome of the "Emperor's New Clothes"! The people of Detroit are too afraid to speak up and tell the truth about what is Kwame's cover up. Number one: WHAT billions of dollars of development? If that were true, the city would have an influx of funding and the budget would NOT be what it is. Why doesn't anyone "GET" that? Detroit is a laughingstock to the rest of the country. God knows the rest of Michigan even looks the other way. Kwame doesn't have to look far if he wants to compare his corrupt administration to others in Detroit's history, but how does that make his image any cleaner? It can't. The sad reality is this: Kwame lies and cheats the city, yet, he has his so-called supporters. If he is re-elected, then Detroit will get exactly what it deserves.
