TV Judge Calls for Mayor's Resignation
(2008-03-27)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Television judge Greg Mathis says he is not part
of a committee raising funds for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's
legal battle against perjury, misconduct and other charges.
The TV personality and former Detroit district court judge was
responding Thursday to reports listing him as part of a group
contributing money to help pay Kilpatrick's private lawyers.
Mathis said in a faxed statement he told Kilpatrick Wednesday he
supports due process "but I could not support him" and recommends
Kilpatrick "resign so the city can heal and move forward."
The Reverend Horace Sheffield III says he is a member of the
committee and had been told Mathis also was part of the group.
It could cost Kilpatrick millions of dollars to defend himself
against the criminal charges.
