Detroit’s “Hip Hop” Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has landed himself in a pile of mess amidst allegations that he lied under oath about an alleged affair he was having with his Chief of Staff, Ms. Christine Beatty. On Jan. 30 he made a passionate plea to Detroit residents in a televised address from an empty church, accompanied by his wife who sat by his side. Without directly implicating himself, Kilpatrick admitted to the people that he was, “accountable” for the accusations being hurled his way. Apparently, text messages surfaced dating back to ’02 and ’03 that contradict the statements Kilpatrick made under oath. In one the Mayor wrote, “I’ve been dreaming all day about having you all to myself for 3 days. Relaxing, laughing, talking, sleeping and making love.” The Chief of Staff has recently resigned but Kilpatrick is determined to remain Mayor for the rest of his term. Prosecutors are weighing whether or not to bring charges against the embattled Mayor. A conviction for lying under oath carries a stiff fifteen joints in the penile.
