***Update-Friday, 8/8/08-Michigan’s attorney general says he’s bringing assault charges against Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick after the mayor had a physical confrontation with a detective trying to deliver a subpoena.
The mayor faces two counts of assaulting or obstructing a police officer in the furtherance of their duties. Each felony count brings up to 2 years in prison or a fine of $2,000.***
Kwame, Kwame, Kwame, can’t you see
Dirty text got you up in perjury……..
That’s just a little ditty I’m working on. I’m still trying to get the Biggie Smalls’ estate to let me sample “Hypnotize” and I’ll have a hit on my hands for sure.
Anyway, Detroit’s Mayoral Douchebag, Kwame Kilpatrick violated his bond and is on his way to jail.
DETROIT (AP) — Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, charged with perjury and other felonies for his testimony in a civil trial, was ordered to jail Thursday because he violated his bond by taking a quick trip to Canada without notifying authorities.
Kilpatrick apologized and acknowledged that he made a mistake when he visited Windsor, Ontario, minutes away from Detroit, for city business last month. But 36th District Court Judge Ronald Giles was not moved, saying he needed to treat the mayor like any other defendant.
“What matters to me … is how the court overall is perceived and how if it was not Kwame Kilpatrick sitting in that seat, if it was John Six-Pack sitting in that seat, what would I do? And that answer is simple,” Giles said.
Lest you lose track, Kwame will also find out Friday morning if Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox will press charges against the “mayor” for assault on a detective that attempted to serve Kilpatrick a subpoena. Kwame’s attorney thinks an assault charge against his client is “a done deal.”
