Kwame to Kwame: Resign or else

"I'll be here for as long as I can be here" - this is an actual quote (AP Press)

Another bad week for Detroit's hip-hop mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick.

First, the Michigan Supreme Court rejected Kilpatrick's attempt to conceal documents from being made public that detail a city settlement that helped conceal an affair with his former Chief of Staff, Christine Beatty. Kilpatrick and Beatty's text message scandal revealed over 14000 messages over city issued pagers that narrated the affair.

It gets worse.

Detroit's other Kwame, Councilman Kwame Kenyatta, chair of the Internal Operations Committe passed a resolution saying Mayor Kilpatrick used his office for personal gain. The resolution also calls for Kilpatrick to resign or risk being forced from office. The resolution will be before the full council on Tuesday.
