Nowhere in the article could I find what political party the mayor is in.

Yeah, if it was a Republican, it would be in BOLD TYPE. Truth is BOTH PARTIES have LOTS OF CROOKS in them. But the press only lists the party if it is Republican. Now they are only reporting the race of a criminal if they are white.

Doesn't make a bit of difference to me as to what politcal party he claims as his.

That's not the point of the story.

He has been charged because he perjured himself in a court of law. Remember: he is an attorney so, obviously, knows the penalty for perjury.

Good for Kym Worthy.

He's being persecuted because he is a successful African American.

New version of Lou Reed’s:“Walk On The Wild Side”

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat
Went to Asheville
You should've seen 'em go go go
They said, Hey Kwame
Take a walk on the wild side
Beatty Said, Hey babe,
Take a walk on the wild side
Bellamy said, Hey honey,
Take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls say, doo do doo do doo do do doo,....

She most certainly will be called to testfy or be deposed to find out what she knows of this mans affairs.

She was instrumental in bringing him to Asheville to speak at a MLK Dinner....

They will want to know, with who, how did he pay....etc etc etc ....

If indeed they do subpoena her, she either tells the truth or faces Perjury charges herself. Thats a 15 Year Felony.

I'm waiting to see what she brought back from Mexico with her LOL

Are you STUPID??? He is a disgrace to us real successful black men. I hope he maxes out in prison. Maybe he'll change his name to Tyrone Jenkins while in prison. Then his defense will be that it wasn't him.

Transplanted,

"He is being PERSECUTED BY A BLACK DISTRICT ATTORNEY!"

Kilpatrick's defenders have a ready answer for you. She is an Uncle Tom acting on "The Man's" requests.

xanadu,

"Doesn't make a bit of difference to me as to what politcal party he claims as his.

You are correct. That is not the point of the story. But my point is that if it were a republican Mayor, you can damn well bet that his party affiliation would have been in the headline and the first sentence of the article.

If our mayor has to testify who pays for the trip?
Was this the lady in the hot tube with him or was it another?

It is a Wayne County Michigan legal matter so you would hope it would be at their expense.

Buncombe County nor the state of N.C. should bear any financial responsibility for Michigan legal matters.

Part of the perjury charges are founded on lies about paying off whistle blowers with Wayne County Michigan tax payers funds.
