Kwame Kilpatrick pleads guilty, resigns

Via Drew M at AOSHQ, Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick -- a Democrat -- admits he lied under oath:
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has pleaded guilty, ending a nearly eight month drama that has transfixed the region, paralyzed much of city business and halted a political career that once held such promise. . . .
The mayor will turn over his state pension to the City of Detroit, which paid $8.4 million to settle two whistle-blower lawsuits three former cops filed against the city. . . . In a rushed monotone, Kilpatrick told the court: "I lied under oath in the case of Gary Brown and Harold Nelthrope versus the city of Detroit ... I did so with the intent to mislead the court and jury, to impede and obstruct the disposition of justice."
In a plea bargain, Kilpatrick pleads guilty on two of the eight felonies he was charged with before Barack Obama praised the corrupt and dishonest Democrat super-delegate for "doing an outstanding job":

So many corrupt Democrats! Somebody ought to write a book about that . . .

UPDATE: I almost forgot that Obama already threw Kwame under the bus. It's gotten so crowded under Obama's bus, it's hard to keep track of who's under there.

Need I remind you that Michigan is a battleground state? Or that Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm had started hearings on whether Kilpatrick should be removed from office? If you don't think the Kilpatrick scandal will hurt Obama in Michigan, think again.
