Downfall of another "Mayor Against Illegal Guns"
Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is prominent in Bloomberg's group. It's amusing to read this report, which ends with "The mayor's chief of staff, Kandia Milton, will run the city while Kilpatrick is in jail, mayoral spokeswoman Denise Tolliver said."
What I'm waiting for is for these bozos to be jailed for flouting the Second Amendment.

Doesn't revoking your bond and being sent to jail bring about a good enough reason for ANYONE in ANY area of public service to resign?
This guy should be stripped of his position effective immediately!
People of Detroit need to step up and quit running their local government like it's a branch of Pistons!
