Kwame Kilpatrick Gets 28 Years!

Posted October 10th, 2013 by Iron Mike

Bye-bye SuperFly!   Thank You Judge Nancy Edmunds!  The 2-term Mayor who raped Detroit should’a gotten life, – but 28 years should be enough time for the inmates to have their way with him!
Kwame Kilpatrick 28 years
What did he do?  As the last mayor of Detroit – at a time when ~ just maybe ~ the city could have been saved,  he treated Detroit like a pimp treats his hooker.  He pocketed money,  abused her,  and left her out on the street in the cold.  Now she is drug-addicted, illiterate, crime-ridden, scarred, bankrupt and dying.

You can read the gritty details here on Wiki, – but remember he already did one jail term for perjury and obstruction,  got paroled after just 99 days, – violated his parole. He is just 43.

Now, for living very large by means of racketeering conspiracy, fraud, extortion, mail and wire fraud, and tax evasion, – the former 7-year Michigan State Rep and 2-term mayor [both parents were career Democrat politicians, – mom was a US Congresswoman] is going away.

Sadly, so is Detroit.

And the last Republican Mayor of Detroit?  Lou Miriani who stepped down Jan 1962   [Sadly, after being elected to City Council in ’65,  Lou was convicted of tax evasion in ’69 and did 10 months.] The previous Republican, Albert Cobo, – died in office.

UPDATE:   Fri 14 August 2015   3-judge panel of the 6th Federal Circuit Court upholds Kwame’s long sentence – but agrees to set aside the $4.5 Million restitution order – for recalculation.

    Our illustrious pResident just sent a big bailout to Motown but the National Parks are fenced shut. Which Democrat bastion will he be bailing out next?

    He’ll have to bail out Chicago next, I’d think. I am glad he got a real sentence. The next question is: How many weeks/months will he actually serve?

    Kwame Kilpatrick was black, hip, a smooth talker, and utterly unqualified for office. Who does he remind you of?
