Kwame Kilpatrick, father both indicted on federal corruption and extortion charges.



I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.

  1. This article regarding the Kawami Kilpatrick, former mayor of Detroit, Michigan, is a tragic end to a promising career. There was talk that Mr. Kilpatrick coul have been the next senator from Michigan, replacing Debbie stabenaw. All he had to do was stay honest, and keep his nose clean. Instead, the Hip Hop mayor decided that this was not good enough. Before he knew it he was involved in curruption and scandals unheard of accross the board. He took a lot of people with him, as the article from Chritian Monitor shows. However, what is worse, in this writers opinion, is that he took his family out too. He destroyed his mothers career, Caroline Cheeks Kilpatrick, a member of Congress. His father is now implicated as is his sister. Friends ol’ buddies and all going down on on their way to prison. He implicated the wife of Congressman Conyers as well, another prominate political family in Michigans Detroit area. A story worth watching, because it is not over yet. Others are in trouble. And there is even a murder twist of a dancer who apparantly was caught giving the mayor a lap dance by his wife at a party at the Mayors mansion. The mayors wife allegedly attacked the woman and some say threatened her. Now, the woman was gunned down in a Detroit neighborhood. Killers unknown. Police have covered up the ongoing investagation. Curruption reaching all the way to Lansing where the Attorny General Mike Cox allegedly covered up that a party ever occurred. And on it goes, one scandal after another, one political carreer after another. This story has done more than just embarrase the City of Detroit. It has embarrased Michigan as well. It is a story that should be watched. It hurts this writer to say, Detroit is my home town.
