Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick continues to dodge the questions about a questionable lease of a luxury SUV for his wife. At first, the Mayor’s Office denied the car even existed, until chief investigator Steve Wilson found it Monday.
On Tuesday, Wilson tracked the mayor down in Washington, D.C., but instead of getting the answers you deserve, on the mayor’s orders, Steve got body-slammed by a body guard.Of course the you’ll need to see the video (RealMedia) to see the body slam.
So what’s all the fuss about?
While Detroit government employees faced the choice of a layoff or 10% pay cut, and residents face reduced city services, Detroit’s mayor spent a mound of taxpayer money ($24,000 a year) to lease a brand new Lincoln Navigator for his wife.
