Just to dispell the rumors...

Just so we can all put aside the rumors- I have no problem writing about what I see is wrong with every portion of politics... even Dems. This post (and many more to follow) is proof. This post is about Kwame Kilpatrick, soon to be ex mayor of the city of Detroit. Hopefully we have all watched this situation unfold and took notes, so that it never has to be repeated again. Mayor of the 11th largest city in the country pleading guilty to obstruction... and having been found guilty of perjury. Here's the deal America: it really does not matter to me what politicians do in the bedrooms- as I have stated before, I would appreciate it if they stayed out of my personal proclivities also- but if you are caught, you are caught. DON'T LIE ABOUT IT. In a day and age when a short, cute, Black, former Ohioian can get online and leave her life and thoughts on a blog for all to see, there is a HUGE possibility that someone will find out about your affair. No matter how careful you think you are, people are nosy. There is always a possibility that someone is going to put your business out there. Now, politicians are people- they are not above reproach, BUT you have to have common sense. If you don't want to deal with public opinion, politics is not the game for you. If you don't want to deal with the consequences then don't leave the confines of your marriage for some easy a** on the side. If you don't want to have to explain then don't start something that would lead you towards a press conference. Simple rules, huh? You would think!
Well, good old Kwame started an affair with his former top aide, Christine Beatty. They left text messages, and receipts for anyone to find. Then they both denied it... under oath. For those of you who were wondering, that is perjury! Fast forward a year, today Kwame is stepping down. I must admit that I am not upset. If you cannot keep yourself together enough not to eff your top aide, then you deserve to be in office. I don't feel bad for Kwame. He should think with his big head and not the little one. Both Kwame and Christine should be ashamed of all the crap they put their families and the city of Detroit through. He deserves to lose his office and she deserves to lose her job. Lying never pays...

From the AP:

DETROIT (AP) _ Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has agreed to plead guilty to obstruction charges and will step down after more than six years leading the nation's 11th-largest city.The plea deal was announced during a court hearing Thursday and brings to an end a seven-months-long sex scandal that led to felony charges against Kilpatrick and plunged the city, region and state into political chaos.As part of the plea deal, the 38-year-old Democrat is expected to serve jail time.The married mayor and former top aide Christine Beatty were charged in March with perjury, misconduct and obstruction of justice. They're accused of lying under oath about an affair and their roles in the firing of a deputy police chief. Beatty did not plead guilty and next will appear in court on Sept. 11.

I agree, the whole thing is just a mess. You would think with them being so astute, they would have chosen a different system of text messaging - one that does not allow for messages to be stored in a log. Additionally, they both are idiots, because now he is disbarred and she will never pass character and fitness. It is like what kind of job does one get after this mess.
