Kwame bites you once…

During Kwame’s first term as mayor, he was surrounded by scandal. Improper bodyguard expenses, improper terminations, excessive spending (including a Lincoln Navigator for his wife…on the dime of the Detroit taxpayer). Throughout his tenure as mayor, there was a sense of impropriety.

Then he had to run for reelection. The “Hip Hop” mayor, notorious for his large diamond earring and his everpresent bodyguards, was running against a well educated, articulate man in Freman Hendrix. Hendrix was endorsed by both the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press, as well as the alternative weekly newspaper, the Metro Times. But, Kilpatrick had something remarkable behind him. He had an incredible amount of support from his constituency. You could drive around the city of Detroit and see signs on the front lawn for “Our Mayor”. As I recall, there were a small number of endorsements from high powered executives from big businesses in Detroit. GM and DTE Energy come to mind. But, his constituents wouldn’t let him down this year. Though Kilpatrick lost the primary, he ended up winning the election and another term as the mayor of Detroit.

Fast forward to his next term—->

Mr. Mayor comes before a court in a whistle-blower case of improper termination. During this time, he is called to testify about a potential sexual relationship with his chief of staff, Christine Beatty. during which time he perjured himself. This case is settled by the City of Detroit to the tune of $6.5 million.

Now, within the last week or so, we get word that Kilpatrick will be facing charges of assault. And today, Mr. Kilpatrick was sent to Wayne County Jail for violating the terms of his bond, when he left the state and the country to visit Windsor about a business deal without notification. However, the media learned of the trip, resulting in the court getting notified about the trip after the fact.

Now…what I don’t understand about this whole debacle, is why he would’ve been reelected in the first place. On the one hand, it does say something for Kilpatrick that he was able to motivate his supporters to turn out to the polls. But, really. What in the HELL were the voters of the City of Detroit thinking? He spends money like the city has it. And they don’t.

But, hey. Detroit has that image. The city with the Hip-hop mayor.

Next time, maybe the voters will look past the bling to find value in integrity.
