He has panache, je ne sais quoi and a certain savoir-faire.
Be honest...don't you EXPECT the mayor of Detroit to look like this?
I've followed his career for the past few years...mainly because I just don't know how this guy got elected...then RE-elected.
He beat out this dude a few years ago: Freeman Hendrix
Hendrix was your typical run-of-the-mill honest Michigan son hoping for change in a city ravaged by poverty.
LOSER! Hendrix doesn't look like he's ever made it rain. He don't ball out of control. Not one Steve Harvey suit.
I met Kwame in LA a few years back at a GM, celebrities in cars thingy I went to. That dude fills up a room.
Check him in this video...it's exactly as I remember him.
I was like, wow...he's f@*king mayor of a MAJOR US city?
He makes me feel like ANYTHING is possible.
Why do I bring all this up?
Well...according to the Detroit Free Press, Mayor Kilpatrick lied under oath about sex.
hmmm...let me rephrase that.
He pulled a Clinton.
He was working it out with his chief of "staff" Christine Beatty.
"I heard your stupid pun, B...NOT. FUNNY."
They got caught because of two reasons:
1) Text Messages.
Yup. The phone company saves them. (sucks, right?) And they can be used as part of discovery documents in a legal trial.
I'm madly in love with you," Kilpatrick wrote on Oct. 3, 2002.
"I hope you feel that way for a long time," Beatty answered. "In case you haven't noticed, I am madly in love with you, too!"
Other texts contain sexual content, like this exchange on April 8, 2003:
Beatty: "And, did you miss me, sexually?"
Kilpatrick: "Hell yeah! You couldn't tell. I want some more. "(pure poetry)
2) The other reason they got caught was that Kilpatrick's body guard was subpoenaed and admitted under oath he saw them making sweet, sweet, Detroit love.
When will we learn?
ps - I HATE the Pistons...and have since they used to give Scottie Pippen migraines. That is all.
