Detroit Mayor Resigns After Guilty Plea


Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has resigned after he pleaded guilty of felony charges stemming from a sex scandal. His resignation letter is one sentance and states it will take effect on Spetember 18th. "I lied under oath," Kilpatrick said in court.

Kilpatrick will serve 4 months in jail and 5 years probation. He will also have to pay 1 million dollars over 5 years in restitution. He has also lost his license to practice law and can not run for or hold any elected spot for 5 years.

The woman he had an affair with Christine Beatty has pleaded not guilty. Also when Mayor Kilpatrick resigned the Detroit Police Chief Ella Cummings who was appointed by Kilpatrick resigned effective immediatley.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
10 felony counts in the two separate criminal cases.

Why don't these people get checked over before having such high positions?

The Kilpatrick administration was rife with controversy and playing with the taxpayers money. When the news broke on the TV here I looked at the husband and said watch Cummings will resign. Not 5 minutes after I said that it came across that she was resigning immediatley.

  What I Meant  
was did he succeed because he was corrupt or did corruption follow success.

Sure didn't help what was already in his mind. He is so idiotic that he is talking about coming back after jail. He is still facing at least 10 other counts against him.
