Another Bloomberg mayor bites the dust
Kwame Kilpatrick, former Detroit mayor and member of MAIG, just was sentenced to 28 years in prison for corruption.
"Kilpatrick spent $800,000 more than he earned. He billed his city credit card for trips to Las Vegas, and bought concert tickets and football tickets along with an $850.00 steak dinner. He leased two Lincoln Navigators for his wife with public money.
"Managing a city with no money is hard every single day," Kilpatrick told the court. "I can't stand here and say I didn't work my butt off. I did every single day.""
UPDATE: just got thru deleting and despamming about 200 spam comments, most of them like this one. I'll leave that one up, just hoping it's not saying something in Japanese that the NSA doesn't like...
