It’s Oz time

Posted by Media Outrage on October 28, 2008

Former Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick has been sentenced to 120 days in jail.

Via Yahoo:

DETROIT – A judge has sentenced former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to 120 days in jail, nine months after a newspaper story about text messages ignited a scandal at City Hall. Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner ordered the sentence Tuesday afternoon and noted Kilpatrick would not be given an opportunity for early release.

The Democratic ex-mayor pleaded guilty last month to obstruction of justice, admitting he lied about an affair with his chief of staff while testifying in a civil lawsuit in 2007. He also pleaded no contest to assaulting a sheriff’s detective.

Mediaoutrage– 120 days isn’t too much time. He should be able to avoid getting the OZ treatment.

Updated at 8:14 p.m.

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick bragged that he occasionally liked to ditch his full-time security, sneak out of the Manoogian Mansion and drive around the streets of Detroit, a routine now referred to as “Kwame Time.”

He and Beatty sometimes messaged each other about whether he could get free of prying eyes for a rendezvous, which often happened late at night.

Members of the police executive protection unit, including Kilpatrick’s longtime pal and team leader Officer Loronzo (Greg) Jones, didn’t like their charge sneaking off.

Detroit’s new mayor

Posted by Media Outrage on September 19, 2008

Ken Cockrel Jr. was sworn in as Detroit’s new mayor yesterday. Cockrel was president of the City Council and will now have the chance to provide leadership at the highest level in the city as a result of Kwame Kilpatrick’s text sex scandal. To see Ken Cockrel Jr in action during a city council a few months ago that went very wrong click here.

Via Yahoo:

Cockrel has hired a former federal prosecutor as deputy mayor, picked a police chief and urged residents to put their trust in the new team at City Hall.

In remarks to reporters this week, he said getting his hands on the city’s budget problems is a priority. Cockrel already has met with outside auditors.

“When you have your financial house in order, it makes it a lot easier to do the other things that you want to do,” the 42-year-old former newspaper reporter said.

Kilpatrick, a Democrat, left office Thursday and will go to jail next month as part of a recent plea deal with prosecutors. He admitted lying on the witness stand in a civil lawsuit over the firing of two police officers.

Kilpatrick’s 120-day jail sentence starts Oct. 28.

Mediaoutrage– Out with the old in with the new.

Detroit mayor and his hot text message affair

Posted by Media Outrage on January 25, 2008

Kwame Kilpatrick

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is now in some deep dookie for possibly lying under oath last year when he denied having an affair with his top aide Christine Beatty. It has come out that they sent over 14,000 text messages to one another professing their love, affair, and hot butt naked sex.

The text messages….

I’m madly in love with you,” Kilpatrick wrote on Oct. 3, 2002.

I hope you feel that way for a long time,” Beatty replied. “In case you haven’t noticed, I am madly in love with you, too!

On Oct. 16, 2002, Kilpatrick wrote Beatty: “I’ve been dreaming all day about having you all to myself for 3 days. Relaxing, laughing, talking, sleeping and making love.

Kilpatrick is married with three children. Beatty was married at the time and has two children.

The two, both 37, have been friends since they attended the same Detroit high school. Kilpatrick also appointed Beatty as his chief of staff when he became state House minority leader in 1999. She was his campaign manager during his campaigns for state House and the mayor’s office.

The content of the text messages “astounded” Judge Michael Callahan, who presided over the lawsuit. He said the messages would have been admitted into evidence, if they had been presented during the trial.

“I’ve done other whistle-blower cases, but I don’t think I’ve ever had a trial as tense as the one involving the mayor and the city,” he said.

The Mayor’s statements….

These five- and six-year-old text messages reflect a very difficult period in my personal life,” he said. “It is profoundly embarrassing to have these extremely private messages now displayed in such a public manner.

Dag the media just Jim Browned him.
