Another Bloomberg Mayor becomes a prohibited person
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick pleads to two felonies. He'll resign, turn over his pension to the city as restitution, serve 120 days.
The charges are based on perjury during a civil police whistleblower trial, and in denying that he tried to fire a police official who was investigating corruption committed by his inner circle.
He still faces felony assault charges relating to another incident.
Plead NO Contest to one Assault charge the second was dismissed.

This isn't good for the country. Folks like this mayor are making things worse, not better. It's a tragedy all around.

It's been pointed out the liberals are guilty of projection, perhaps that is why they join Bloomberg, they are busy breaking the law & figure everyone else is too, isn't this like the 4th one to go down in flames?

He'll probably show up again to be re-elected like the idiot mayors of D.C. after being caught smoking crack and Ray Nagin after fumbling through Katrina.

Another one of these, Frank Melton of Jackson, MS, was indicted on Federal Civil Rights charges this summer and goes to trial 12 Nov. There seems to be a pattern with Bloomberg's compatriots in this organization.
