DETROIT MAYOR-COUNCIL
(2008-05-13)
(wgvu) - THE DETROIT CITY COUNCIL HAS SCHEDULED VOTES
TODAY ON THREE RESOLUTIONS INVOLVING INDICTED MAYOR KILPATRICK.
ONE RESOLUTION CALLS FOR THE COUNCIL TO BEGIN PROCEEDINGS TO
FORCE KILPATRICK TO FORFEIT THE OFFICE.
THE SECOND ASKS GOVERNOR GRANHOLM TO REMOVE KILPATRICK UNDER
STATE LAW FOR MISCONDUCT IN OFFICE.
AND THE THIRD CENSURES THE MAYOR BUT LEAVES HIM IN OFFICE.
THE MOVES FOLLOW A TEXT-MESSAGING SEX SCANDAL INVOLVING
KILPATRICK AND HIS ROLE IN AN 8.4 MILLION-DOLLAR SETTLEMENT OF A
LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CITY.
KILPATRICK AND HIS EX-CHIEF OF STAFF ARE CHARGED WITH PERJURY
FOR TESTIFYING IN THAT CASE THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE A ROMANTIC
RELATIONSHIP.
