Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is not the first public official to cheat on his wife and family.
Look at King David and how he even ordered the murder of the husband of the woman with whom he had an affair. Then remember Bill Clinton who turned the White House Oval Office into a hideaway where he had sex with an intern.
Now we have Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who lied about his affair with his chief of staff and then used more than $8 million of taxpayers money to cover it up. He fought tenaciously to keep hidden the documents showing the details of the affair that has further besmirched Michigan's number one city.
Evidence shows that it's time for the state of Michigan to start talking about taking over the operation of the Motor City. Discussions about the future of Detroit and its operations need to start with the Michigan Legislature.
