The relationship between Former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his top aide Christine Beatty may be over and done, their text messages live on. On Monday, 682 text messages were released for public consumption and on Tuesday a million-dollar lawsuit was filed by the former mayor's attorney. Some of the texts show Kilpatrick exchanging sexual innuendo with other women. On The Takeaway this morning, Oneita Jackson, who writes the O Street Blog and is a copy editor for the Detroit Free Press talks about this electronic paper trail and it's implications.
