Edward McNamara, former mayor of Livonia and reputed criminal himself who died before his trial, warned Kwame to stay away from Bernard if he wanted a successful political future. Kwame scorned the advice and we see the result. McNamara was a choir boy next to Kwame. Now Bernard will walk free or nearly so while the protégé is in the can.

Kwame was a THUG long before he talked to Edward McNamara.

Remember he <Kwame> did give a "Shout out to the seven mile dogs" when he got into office.

GO FIGURE!

For sure Kwame was well on his way in the state legislature. The fed tried to go back into that time as the start of his criminal enterprise. McNamara, who know Bernard well, was "dissing" the young Kwame as an amateur. Kwame really showed them who was the real don.

PS>Kwame got his start at his mom's knee.

I am looking forward to David Kutek Sylvan Township Michigan Resident pleading guilty to theft in federal court this year. Kwame and David Kutek would make a great couple, naturally David Kutek would be the pillow biter!

Now Bob..you know it's because they're black.
They never do anything wrong.
I don't see why odummy doesn't free them all.
You know they're innocent.
Yeah....right !

Kwami,
There's another one in Washington DC that should
go to prison with you.
He's even worse than you are to waste money.
Too bad he isn't going in, too.
REMEMBER: Don't drop the soap !
You might want to take some KY jelly with you.
You're going to need it.
That is...if they can find your sorry anus through all of those
folds of fat.

May 25, 2010:
Kwame Kilpatrick, the disgraced former mayor of Detroit, was sentenced Thursday to 28 years in prison for corruption following a series of scandals that showed he had unchecked power while in office.
Kilpatrick’s defense attorneys originally had argued that federal prosecutors were overreaching when they recommended he get 28 years – but Judge Nancy Edmunds handed down every minute of it.
"It was a tough sentence but it was a very large crime (and) the punishment met the crime," said U.S. Attorney Mark Chutkow.
Kilpatrick addressed the court before his sentencing, saying, "I'm incredibly remorseful." But he stopped short of admitting guilt.
This was a different Kilpatrick. Gone were the flamboyant suits, the earring and the demeanor of the politician once described as the “hip hop mayor.”
He wore prison clothes and spent a great deal of time with his eyes trained at the floor.
"I believe he was broken. I believe he is very sorry," said Norman Yatooma, an attorney who investigated the suspicious death of Tamara Green, a woman tangled in the wild stories around Kilpatrick. "Sorry because he got caught."
His pre-sentence statement stood in contrast to his lifestyle in office.
Kilpatrick spent $800,000 more than he earned. He billed his city credit card for trips to Las Vegas, and bought concert tickets and football tickets along with an $850.00 steak dinner. He leased two Lincoln Navigators for his wife with public money.
"Managing a city with no money is hard every single day," Kilpatrick told the court.

HOW WOULD HE KNOW?
