Girlieman of the Week
Date Awarded: September 05, 2008
Girlieman: (Ex) Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
Antics: Won’t take his medicine.
Kwame Kilpatrick played the race card, the Mecca Maniac card, and all the other cards at his disposal from the bottom of the deck. When he got caught red-handed, he tried to cover his tracks, by diverting attention and lying under oath. He blamed anyone, everyone, for his problems, but never had the stones to point the accusing finger at the person responsible, the asshat in the mirror.
Finally, despite all of Kwame’s antics, the dominos started to fall. In addition to staring at hard time for the 8 felony counts laid at his doorstep, Kwame was days away from having Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm exercise a power given her in the state’s constitution and kick him out of office. Unwilling to face that - no appeal allowed - gubernatorial decision, Kwame accused her of bias and tried to get some Ethnocrat in judges robes to save his sorry ass. It was a longshot and destined to fail.
Finally, after accusing the city council, the governor, and - probably - bug-eyed interstellar racists for his problems, Kwame ran out of options. He was dragged screaming and kicking to the bar of justice. Still unrepentant, Kwame entered an insincere ‘guilty’ plea on two counts of obstruction of justice.
The good news is that his guilty plea comes at a price: loss of his law license, loss of his job, four months in the slammer, five years on probation, he agreed not to run for elected office for five years. The bad news is that despite his plea, Kwame still won’t accept responsibility for his actions, by admitting the full extent of his guilt. The only reason he admitted anything is because he ran out of time, and guilt avoiding options.
Kwame Kilpatrick is more then a dirty politician who abused his power. He’s a craven coward and that’s why he’s the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girlieman of the Week.
