Kilpatrick Charged With Perjury

Kwame Kilpatrick, the Mayor of Detroit, whom I've written about before, is now charged with perjury for lying during the trial of a police officers' whistleblower lawsuit, wherein the officers, who won the suit, revealed that the mayor's police protection detail had been helping the mayor carry on adulterous affairs, while some officers in the unit allegedly engaged in overtime abuse, accident cover-ups and drinking on the job.

Kilpatrick flat out called the cops who had protected him liars for alleging that Kilpatrick had used them to help him cover his adulterous affair. He denied the affair, but alas, emails and text messages pretty clearly show otherwise, in contradiction of his sworn testimony.
