Detroit Mayor-Council
(2008-05-05)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit City Council attorney says in a report
that little can be done to get back an $8.4 million
whistle-blowers' settlement involving Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
A copy of William Goodman's report delivered to City Council on
Monday was obtained by The Associated Press. The report, which
hasn't been made public yet, says the City Council did not have all
the necessary information about the case when it agreed to the
settlement.
Council members say they were not aware of a confidential
agreement involving references to sexually explicit text messages
between Kilpatrick and then-Chief of Staff Christine Beatty when
they approved the settlement.
Kilpatrick and Beatty face perjury and other charges stemming
from testimony given during last summer's whistle-blowers' suit.
