High powered political leaders in bed with each other. I will not support any of their businesses. They must have too much money. Millions to defend the indefensible.

I used to like Judge Mathis. How could anyone in their right mind want to help this obvious crook. Maybe they are all in cohoots with Kwame. That wouldn't suprise me a bit.

i heard a chicago talk show where they did not even talk about if he was guilty or not just "we have to gather around and support the mayor in his time of need, we can not turn our backs on him now"

You have got to be kidding me!? It must be nice to be able to do whatever you want, perjure yourself, misuse public funds and still have people bail you out. This is incredible and outrageous! Hmmmm...very suspicious. Kind of makes you wonder if Kwame has something on those guys paying his legal bills.

Kwame has all but destroyed the City of Detroit, and it's spreading to Michigan. The reason Jennifer isn't getting involved is because Kwame has awarded big contracts to her husband's consulting company. And who's going to pay for his mistress' defense? Or is she going to turn state's evidence and testify against him?

You know what's even scarier?

Just think about the jury pool. It's probably going to be OJ all over again. Since there's idiots that will fund a defense for him, you have to know that there's idiots out there that don't think what he did was wrong.

A group of business and political leaders, Please, I didn’t see a business person on the list? Worst we can do is boycott Judge Mathis. Teachers in Detroit should be upset that a lawyer that represent them is representing the guy who cause the teachers to lose their jobs, Detroit Education system can’t buy books for the classroom, and maintenance to the buildings. The teachers need to get together and give Reginald Turner two options, quit Kwame or resign off the board of Education.

Think how far this money could go to the citizens, schools and police and fire departments of Detroit and Wayne County.$8.4 Million to the whistle Blowers,$860K to Kwames defense team, the money (time of people that could be doing something else), Kwame’s relatives and buddies, he appointed that raped the city coughers. The millions more defending and prosecuting his sorry excuse of a human. This could easily hit $15,000,000.00 The city of Detroit deserves better. How many police officers would $5 million put on the streets making Detroit safer? How many teachers and books would $5 million put in the classroom?

Teachers, Parents and Students stand up and request Reginald Turner (Michigan Board of Education) and Martin Taylor (U of M regent) be removed from their positions due to conflict of interest. Kwame has killed the educational system in Detroit.

A regent: A member of the governing board of a state university or a state educational system

So, Detroit's mayor is in legal trouble and the governor needs jail time? Perhaps she was advised to keep quiet as she may need to testify later.


#17 Mar 27, 2008
OK, I just sent an opinion form to Jenny requesting that Turner be removed from his position as I feel he has a conflict of interest on this. I will no longer watch Judge Mathis and will also send an e-mail to U of M on Martin Taylor.


#18 Mar 27, 2008
OK, I sent an e-mail to UofM about relieving Mr Taylor as well.

Good Day,

Ever heard of guilt by association? I think it is quite likely he will be found guilty if this goes the full course. Then these folks supplying the defense fund will certainly loose face and be found guilty by association.

fgn - great point! I was screaming about this and other questionable business deals and actions by good ol" Jenny when she was a prosecutor. But nobody wanted to listen to the TRUTH! The libs did not care - hey just wanted someone to support more social programs vs. looking into her questionable past.
