Thursday, December 16, 2010

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been charged, along with his father and three top aides, with racketeering, extortion, taking kickbacks and attempting to personally enrich themselves through the mayor's high office. The case is one of the biggest corruption indictments in Detroit history.

Jerome Vaughn, news director from affiliate station, WDET, says the list of grievances that the Feds have brought against Kilpatrick and his cohorts is long.
