WHETHER DETROIT MAYOR KWAME KILPATRICK WILL FACE PERJURY CHARGES IN
A TEXT MESSAGE SCANDAL.
KYM WORTHY TELLS WDIV-TV IN DETROIT SHE HAS MADE HER DECISION
BUT WOULDN'T REVEAL DETAILS AS HER TEAM COMPLETES ITS WORK.
HER COMMENTS CAME YESTERDAY MORNING IN A TAPED SEGMENT FOR
"FLASHPOINT."
SHE SAYS HER TEAM HAS REVIEWED 40,000 DOCUMENTS IN THE
"ALL-ENCOMPASSING" 55-DAY PROBE AND ISSUED SUBPOENAS THAT OTHERS
MAY NOT HAVE CONSIDERED.
WORTHY SAID LAST WEEK HER OFFICE NEEDED MORE TIME TO INVESTIGATE
WHETHER KILPATRICK AND FORMER TOP AIDE CHRISTINE BEATTY LIED UNDER

HAVING A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP.
