More corruption news is leaking out of Detroit about former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Seems the owners of a Detroit nightclub are now claiming city building officials extorted contributions to Kilpatrick’s campaign funds, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to perjury charges earlier this year after lying about his affair with his chief of staff and their role in getting several police officers fired. While federal charges have yet to be filed, there is talk that an investigation is under way.
