Actually, his problem is a lack of character.

He deserves this for what he did to the city. Too bad they cannot dig up Coleman Young and put him in a cell with Kwame as well.

I sure hope that the current government has their act together and puts an end to the graft. Detroit has enough problems wihtout all the money being stolen or wasted.

That crook moved into my metro area (DFW) - he lives in Southlake, one of the most expensive areas here. He's a crook. His mom is a crook. His friends here that hooked him up with a job are crooks. It's sad. Hopefully this will be the final nail in his coffin and he'll only see the outside world through bars of a fed pen. Good riddance.

Correction: LIVED in Southlake, TX. He is now a resident of the Oaks Correctional Facility in Manistee, MI.

I have a feeling he won't be seeing a home without bars for a long time.

Well it is looking pretty bad for the ex-mayor. Such a waste of talent. It will be interesting to see how many others will be charged in this investigation.
He had a bright future once.

Unfortunately, the likes of Kwame and Blagoyovich are probably just a tiny drop in the bucket. Kwame and Blagoyovich were probably just engaging in business as usual and happened to get caught. I am glad that they are being prosecuted; it helps prevent our nation from turning into Brazil (where, as I understand it, politicians are immune to prosecution).
