The Kilpatrick Saga, Next Chapter
Today's distraction: Detroit's former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, was indicted on charges that he essentially lied on his tax returns, as well as used money from a campaign and neighborhood development fund to pay for yoga lessons (who knew?), Nike golf clubs, and a specialist to repair his public image in the wake of a sex-texting scandal that may have ended his political career. The indictment had long been expected. Just last month, Kilpatrick was ordered to serve at least 18 months in a Michigan prison for violating key terms of his probation agreement.
