I never thought I'd see this day. Kwame seems to able to slip through and come out smelling like a rose.

FWIW, there is a thread about him at the below link regarding the Stripper Gate.

I am thrilled that his thug a** will be spending time in Jackson State Prison - I'm sure he was hoping for something a bit cushier.

Breaking News at noon: Just reported on WDIV-TV that Kwame Kilpatrick's lead attorney, Michael Alan Schwartz, is stepping down from the case. As soon as a link is available, I'll post it.

I'm not going to merge this thread with the thread regarding Mr. Kilpatrick's possible involvement in the murder investigation of a Chicago stripper because the criminal charges are very different.

However, I will make sure the articles are linked in that thread.
