Detroit Mayor Charged With Perjury After Denying Affair With Assistant

loser

Gosh, does any of this sound in the least bit familiar? We will be hearing about cigars by this time next week? Good grief, what is wrong with politicians?

DETROIT — Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, a one-time rising star and Detroit’s youngest elected leader, was charged Monday with perjury and other counts after sexually explicit text messages contradicted his sworn denials of an affair with a top aide.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy also charged the popular yet polarizing 37-year-old mayor — who adopted the nickname the “Hip-Hop mayor” given to him by comedian Chris Rock — with obstruction of justice and misconduct in office.
...
Kilpatrick, a Democrat, was to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon and could face up to 15 years in prison and be expelled from office if convicted.
...
“Some have suggested that the issues in this case are personal or private,” Worthy said. “Our investigation has clearly shown that public dollars were used, people’s lives were ruined, the justice system severely mocked and the public trust trampled on. ... This case is about as far from being a private matter as one can get.”

Kilpatrick defiantly declared his innocence just an hour after the charges were announced.

“This has been a very flawed process from the beginning,” said Kilpatrick at a press conference Monday. “I look forward to complete exoneration.”

Last week, the Detroit City Council voted seven to one to ask Kilpatrick to resign, a city clerk said. The vote was non-binding and Kilpatrick has continued on the job.

Kilpatrick offered an abject apology to his constituents January 30, but remained adamant he would not resign.

“I truly apologize to each and every one of you, individually and to the whole city,” Kilpatrick said in a sometimes emotional televised statement.

Sitting next to his wife, Carlita, he also apologized to “my entire family, and specifically to the four people I love most in this world”—his wife and his sons, 12-year-old twins Jelani and Jalil and 6-year-old Jonas.

This mess started breaking nationally on March 11, just a day or so after the Sptizer fiasco in NY. I didn’t run with that story then, even though Kilpatrick seemed to playing the Race Card as hard as he possibly could. That wasn’t even two weeks ago, and the story seemed to fade away quickly, especially in light of Client #9 and all those shennanigans. But it’s been big news in Detroit for months now. Funny how the biggest scandal in a major city just didn’t get any airplay for most of this time. I guess I just missed it, seeing as I hardly ever watch or read the news. Riiiight.

I think the new NY governor, Patterson, made the best play: take the oath of office, step off the podium, and tell the press that you’ve screwed around on your wife.

Of course, the best best play would be if we had politicians that could keep their pants on. I think it’s something psychological. Do all male married hetero high ranking politicians cheat on their wives? Or just the Democrat ones? Oh look, I’m the leader, I’m the big Alpha Male, I make the law so I’m above the law, I’ve spent my whole elected career making promises I have no intention of keeping - I’m a habitual liar with no respect for the truth and my word is worthless - so why should some promise made in some church be any better? Besides, did you see how she looks when she bends over in that blue dress?

Politicians are pigs.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
