Noted jackass and self-appointed “Hip-Hop Mayor” Kwame Kilpatrick is now sitting in jail, though he won’t be there long. Kilpatrick, up the creek without a boat on a perjury scandal, decided he’d jet to Canada, a violation of the terms of his bond, without getting permission first.
The man is hardly worth blogging about, he’s a disgrace, you can read the story for yourself here. But Detroit has a history of reelecting disgraceful mayors (Coleman Young anyone?), so Kilpatrick would probably win from jail if he were up now. Sometimes you feel sorry for what a city is going though, then you reach a point when you realize that the city is doing it to itself by electing someone like Kwame.
