Kilpatrick Dynasty Ends in Michigan

It appears the shrapnel from Kwame Kilpatrick’s spectacular implosion also got Democrat Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick – putting an end to a dynasty which had been in power for near 15 years. Ms. Kilpatrick, is a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus and is also the mother of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was indicted on 19 counts of fraud. Carolyn Kilpatrick has never been implicated in any of the charges against her son.

Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, incumbent Dem Rep, goes down in MI primary

Seven-term Michigan Democrat Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick — mother of disgraced ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick — lost in an upset defeat in Tuesday’s primary.

The loss made her the sixth incumbent lawmaker — and fourth in the House — to be snubbed by a frustrated electorate this year.

State Sen. Hansen Clarke beat the veteran lawmaker, stressing the legal woes surrounding her son, who resigned in 2008 after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice.

“This is the final curtain: the ending of the Kilpatrick dynasty,” Detroit political consultant Eric Foster told the Detroit Free Press. “I don’t think we’ve ever seen this epic of a total collapse. Voters swept out the whole family.”

Orange Jumpsuit Award…Kwame Kilpatrick

Ex Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick mulls a long stay in Prison

Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick indicted by feds on 19 mail fraud, tax counts

Kwame Kilpatrick illegally used the nonprofit Kilpatrick Civic Fund like a piggy bank to pay for crisis consultants, a Cadillac, trips — even summer camp for his kids — a federal grand jury said Wednesday, charging the former mayor with 19 counts of fraud and tax evasion.

The indictment comes seven years after Internal Revenue Service and FBI agents began looking into the fund in the wake of a Free Press report that a homeless shelter operator gave the fund $50,000 during Kilpatrick’s first run for mayor in 2001. The newspaper reported that Kilpatrick then wrote a letter recommending the shelter receive a multimillion-dollar public contract.

Despite Kilpatrick’s repeated claims to the contrary, the indictment says he used fund money for campaign and personal expenses, ranging from polling to yoga and golf lessons to college tuition for relatives.

Prosecutors contend he failed to report more than $640,000 in taxable income while mayor that he received in the form of cash, flights on private jets and perks paid for out of the civic fund.

“This indictment sends a clear message that those who make up their own rules based on fraud and deceit will be prosecuted,” said Maurice Aouate, head of the IRS Criminal Investigation Division in Detroit.

The indictment did not include public corruption charges, a point Kilpatrick spokesman Mike Paul seized upon.

He called speculation that the former mayor was involved in bribery schemes “lies from the pit of hell!”

“The FBI found nothing remotely close to that in their investigation because it never happened! This investigation puts an end to the ridiculous rumors that the mayor was personally involved with corruption, payoffs and bribes.”

Two questions behind this prosecution –

1) Why aren’t the Feds convicting Republican David Vitter for “Ho’ Fraud” – using federal money to pay for prostitutes? Or whatever happened to the criminal prosecution of Tom Delay?

2) What do you award a guy who already has an Orange Jumpsuit with his name on it?
