Govenor to Run Possible Hearing Over Mayor
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Jennifer Granholm says she would
preside over the tentatively scheduled Sept. 3 hearing on the
request to remove Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick from office if
such a hearing is deemed necessary.
Granholm said Wednesday that the hearing, if it's needed, would
be in the Detroit area.
Wednesday is the deadline for the Detroit City Council and
Kilpatrick to raise any legal issues related to the hearing. Both
sides then have until Aug. 20 to respond to each other's filings.
The council has asked Granholm to remove Kilpatrick from office
for misconduct.
Michigan law allows a governor to remove an elected official
from office.
