    Do We NOW Have Proof That Yahoo News Has A Liberal Bias? http://news.yahoo.com/former-detroit-mayor-kilpatrick-found-guilty-corruption-racketeering-200600985.html

    Read this entire article. Now read it again. Do you find ANY mention in this article that former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is a DEMOCRAT? When a Republican steps out of line, Yahoo News lists the alleged offender’s party affiliation in the byline (as in “Former Republican Mayor of Wherever Convicted of Whatever”) and usually in the first paragraph in the story. But now they have to cover a story involving a Federal conviction of a liberal, and since they can’t sweep the story under the rug because it’s too big they make no mention of his political affiliation?!?!!

    I’ll have to check ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and NPR to see if they’re doing the same thing…

    P.S.: For those of you poised and ready to bash FOX News, save it — Kwame’s party affiliation is not in the byline, and you have to read through nine paragraphs before you see a mention that Kwame is a Democrat.

  • Edward says:

    Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Guilty; How Long Will Prison Sentence Be ? In addition to other counts, 7 of the counts carry a 20 year max sentence each. What do you think the total sentence will be and could he go away for life ?

    • Curator says:

      Theoretically, he COULD be sentenced to 140 years in prison, which is effectively a life sentence. Practically speaking, however, even if he’s found guilty on all charges, he will probably be sentenced to serving the sentences concurrently, that is, for every day he spends in prison, that day will apply to ALL of his sentences. Plus he’ll get time off for good behavior if he manages to keep out of trouble, so even for a twenty year sentence he’ll end up serving only ten years, or less.

      Plus, of course, he’s probably still pretty well connected, and if he pulls the right strings, he might be able to get someone to quietly parole or pardon him after a few years.

      Dear jimbo,
      Hay Kwame! Look on the bright side… it’s going to be three hots, a cot, and all the sex your cellmate can beat out of you, for the next twenty years.
      Detroit’s not the only one getting scr^^ed

    Another Dem Mayor (ex – Detroit) Gets Convicted Of Corruption – Will It Ever End For Them? Just last week the dem mayor and police chief (Pittsburgh) were forced to resign pending FBI investigation. We won’t even talk about IL. This is the party that is running (ruining) this country? Figures!

    @ Jot – you have a point, but regarding the dem administrations of major rust belt cities… Chi, Det, Clev and Pittsburgh, it is a whole different ball game. All run by dems for decades and all trash heaps for decades,,,.. with corruption thrown in.

    @ Tina, “My lack of education is showing?” Please explain! Education isn’t everything, but I AM a 20 plus year intermediate teach with an MA. You KNOW what they say about “assumption?”

  • Could This Help Explain Why Detroit Is Broke? Why Aren’t The Citizens Outraged? 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.

    Live 4 Something…………..YOU ARE CORRECT. It is a mystery to me. The citizens almost always vote Conservative on national elections but contiue to vote Democrat for local and state elections. I don’t understand it except maybe it has to do with the State wide corruption.. You know the state was investigated years ago in a sting operation and gues who was taking bribes….Democrats. I know it is so hard to believe..

      It’s been going on for a long time.
      Coleman Young robbed the place of $200 Million in 5-terms.
      His Police chief & asst chief absconded with $1.3 Mill apiece.
      The list & amounts are still being compiled,
      no doubt the final tally of theft & corruption will be unbelievable.

      It’ll be as some Russian cities are, sparsely populated & controlled by packs of wild dogs.
      Back to the Future, or Forward to the Past.
      Progressive Nirvana.

    • Curator says:

      So now that JJJ and Detroit’s KK are convicted felons they are suddenly Republicans. That is hilarious. I love it. The progressives would love it that was actually true. Even the Puffington Host writers are not stupid enough to try to call them Republicans.
