The affair is an issue, but the lying under oath is what kills me. How does he do it.He is like butter, slips through all the cracks. Can somebody explain he gets re-elected? What are your thoughts on this guy? Also he gives all Irish a bad name.lol

He gets re-elected because he's the mayor of DETROIT, the the most ghetto place in the entire world:D. He brings out alot of younger voters, that want a "hip-hop" mayor, it's pretty sickening in reality. Kwame wants to be a rapper, that's why he hangs out with them at the club, just another homeboy from the hood with his 5 carat earrings. Funny thing is, he's already killed one prostitute, if he beats this case, he's gonna have crazy street cred:D.

I asked one of my coworkers why would detroit re-elect Kwame after the first go around. Her response to me was he deserves a second chance. Course these are the same people who kept coleman for how long?

Two words: Marion Barry

Urban areas tend to be loyal to their leaders, to a fault. Has as much to do with lack of education as it does with loyalty, sure, but these situations are hardly unique to D-town, sadly.

Many a city has re-elected dead people (St. Louis), Crackheads (DC), and racist pig idiots (New Orleans).

It's not always just urban, however - lots of middle-class, suburban areas have elected/re-elected judges, sherrifs, and DAs with drug, drinking, womanzing, and gambling problems.

Bill Clinton comes to mind as somebody with a whole plate of ethics issues who still got elected/re-elected by some nice people who should have known better:rolleyes:

It's just THIS situation looks (and probably is) a lot worse than many others.

Exactly!! Look at Detroit government - full of election winners based of loyalty to a familiar name. Examples:

  • Monica Conyers (wife of John Conyers, US Rep for Detroit of 30+ years)
  • Coleman Young II (illegitimate son of CAY)
  • Ken Cockrel Jr. (son of former Councilman/60's radical/socialist Ken Cockrel)
  • Martha Reeves (globally renown Motown musician)
  • Kwame: (both mom and dad are Detroit politicians)

When you make choices on name and not merit, you get substandard results.

Funny, the answer I got to that same question was that they felt he had learned his lesson the first time, and it will be better now. I asked this of people who not only voted for him, but will still admit that they did.

Definitely true.

Yup, your right about that.
When Detroit Police officers did their job, investigating the murder of the prostitute, and it started to lead back to Kwame, they got fired.

His abuse of power is disgusting.
It reminds me of the story of "Alice in Wonderland". The further you look into the Kwame-hole, it appears there is no end to the down right criminal activity.

I bet he gets re-elected. Just like Marion Berry.

I dont know if anyone say but in the first link I postedhttp://crabz.com/kingkwame/

The creator of the site claims the his Myspace account password and login were changed and he suspects it to be Kwame. I guess now the only people that can view the page were those that were already friends.

I hope for the sake of Detroit that this guy and his friends don't get elected again.
