Auditor Says Mayor's Check Comes Up Short

I think this guy ought to run for Congress.

DETROIT -- Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick reimbursed the city on Tuesday for a portion of the expenses on his city-issued credit card, Local 4 reported.

Kilpatrick wrote a check to the city for just under $9,000, but Detroit Auditor General Joe Harris said the mayor is about $40,000 short, the station reported.


"The reason I say that is because you got $16,000 Ö of purchases we don't have receipts for," Harris said. "We've got $12,000 for the Super Bowl that appears not to have been for the city."

Harris went on to point out a $4,000 limousine expense and additional hotel expenses that add up to the $50,000 he believes Kilpatrick owes the city, the station reported.

The mayor's credit card had more than $200,000 in charges over a three-year period, the Rescue 4 Waste Watchers reported. Kilpatrick said media reports on his spending, including reports that his sister used the credit card to travel to New Orleans, does not reflect his plan for a reimbursement, Local 4 reported. The mayor said his sister reimbursed the city credit card.

The mayor's office said on Monday night that it was still adding up expenses before determining the amount that would be written on the check, according to Local 4 reports.

"We are going to write one check, and be done with it," said Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick kicked off his re-election campaign on Tuesday.

I'll have to disagree with you on that. He has no chance of being re-elected. There is to much dirt out there that has been exposed about him. I find it interesting that at no point throughout this mess did either of his parents speak out in his defense. Yesterday, was the first time I seen (footage of his re-election announcement) either of them actually speak out.

I thought the City of Detroit would benefit from a younger mayor. Unfortunately, Kwame couldn't differentiate between public official and the dude he was before being elected. Also, aside from his personal demons, Detroit has it's own skeletons dating back to Mayor Young that are now being exposed.

They showed that on the news last night. I thought both his parents speechs were ignorant at best. I was expecting something along the lines of intelligent, articulate, maybe identify his major contributions to the city....No, her (Kwame's mom) comment, "they talking about ya'lls boy".......

I hope you are right about the re-election EID! Get that dude out of there! His big problem is that he thinks he is more famous than Jesus for being the Mayor, and he doesn't understand why everyone else doesn't see that!

Kwame is Coleman Young. He's doing all the things Young did but he's not as smart. Young got all the people behind him before ripping off the city, Kwame just went balls out from the word go. He's just a young Mayor Young. Everything he does reminds me of him.

I have no doubt, he won't be re-elected. Being that I from the same generation as the Mayor, that would be like one of my boys getting elected mayor and he continued to hustle (every aspect of the word). The only difference now is, he has an even bigger hustle, the ultimate hustle.

Want to bet on that? He'll get re-elected through the political powerhouse of his mother, and the blind, ignorant devotion of the majority of Detroiters...
