How much money do I need to buy these naming rights? I'm feeling kinda lucky.

If a bidding war happens, could you tip me off as to just how much the Democratic Party has to throw around on matters of this sort? Thanks.

You're bailing out all of those who voted for:

If the U.S. Attorney’s Office has its way, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick “likely will spend the next couple of decades in prison”— possibly up to 30 years — for running a racket out of City Hall to enrich himself, his family and his friends, according to a filing today in the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

In the filing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Bullotta, who is fighting to keep Kilpatrick locked up pending formal sentencing in the public corruption case, lambasted Kilpatrick for claiming he deserves to be free and doesn’t pose a flight risk because he is poor, famous and has a bad knee.

“Kilpatrick has a long record of lying under oath and misleading the court system,” Bullotta wrote.“He also continues to access large, unexplained quantities of cash.

Kilpatrick and his contractor friend Bobby Ferguson were convicted of 31 crimes combined for running what prosecutors said was a criminal enterprise out of the mayor’s office to enrich themselves. The two were charged with shaking down contractors to steer work toward Ferguson, who in turn would share his ill-gotten gains with Kilpatrick.

Both men are behind bars awaiting formal sentencing, which has not yet been set. A typical sentencing in a simple, routine criminal case occurs about three to four months after a conviction. Sentencing in the Kilpatrick case is expected to happen in early fall.
