He's just a paper hanger. Detroiters can still look up to him even though his crimes were not violent. Will the legislature seat him? Likely.

lolol it's a riot. Felons elected. Like marion barry kept getting re-elected in DC with his drug arrests, or jesse jackson jr re-elected while he's in the nut ward of the mayo clinic for mental bipolar issues as he waits his fate on fraud charges.
