2009 was a bad year for Kwame Kilpatrick. He lost his job as Mayor of Detroit, served four months in jail and had to surrender his law license after the details of a text-message sex scandal came to light. 2010 isn't seeming much better. The FBI now believes Kilpatrick used his office in a “criminal enterprise" and accepted bribes of over $100,000.

We find out about this latest story with Jim Schaefer, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist for The Detroit Free Press and co-author of a new book called "The Kwame Sutra."
