Kwame news

Ut oh ... he's in trouble now:

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced today that Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will face perjury charges for his actions in a whistle-blower case involving fired Detroit employees.

Charges against Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and former Chief of Staff Christine Beatty include conspiracy to obstruct justice, a five year felony.

Worthy said Kilpatrick is also charged with a count of misconduct in office and perjury in a court proceeding, a 15 year felony. Beatty will face separate perjury charges, Worthy said.

"Our investigation has clearly shown that public dollars were used, people's lives were ruined, the justice system was severely mocked and the public trust was trampled on," Worthy said.
