    Kilpatrick gets 1.5 to 5 years in prison, loses job

    Detroit -- Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to 18 months to five years in prison today by Wayne Circuit Judge David Groner, who said the former mayor engaged in "contemptible behavior" by hiding assets from the court in violation of his probation.

    Groner chastised Kilpatrick before imposing the sentence, and several people in the courtroom gasped when the judge handed down his decision. Kilpatrick's sister, Ayanna, was told by sheriff's deputies to sit down.

    "Probation is no longer an option. The terms of your earlier probation no longer apply. That ship has sailed," Groner said. "This is all because of the actions of you, Mr. Kilpatrick. You were convicted ... all because you lied under oath. That lie ... was part of a broader attempt to cover up your misdeeds while serving as mayor.

    "You challenged this court's authority," Groner said. "You attempted to utilize semantics and exploit loopholes.

    From The Detroit News: Kilpatrick gets 1.5 to 5 years in prison, loses job | detnews.com | The Detroit News
    If only he had been President of these United States... he would have got off with a fine, being disbarred (if he were a lawyer), and would be celebrated by socialists around the world. Hell, he wouldn't have to take a $120,000 sales job (never mind he never sold anything), he'd be signing book deals for 10 million and getting 100 grand to clear his throat.

    What went wrong?

    I though lying about sex in court, under oath was permissible?
    That's what the Cliton supporters, the press and his hatchet men told us.
    When did all this change?

    Too bad, the guy woulda been a real contendah on the D-side.

    So is there something interesting you wanted to talk about or is it just some partisan ranting?

    So was there a point you wanted to make about the topic or did you just stop by to troll some more?
