Just as with David Griem and his client, Bob Bashara, now it is Kwame Kilpatrick, Detroit's master of corruption, as he is practically known, seeing how they can't get Robert Ficano to resign, is in court today to get a new lawyer.
Again, no dice. (However, I must note Griem's last minute request was initially denied but he was later allowed to leave the case, as it seems is his MO in cases of husbands suspected of killing their wives.)
Kilpatrick is accused of nothing so bad. His case stems from his time as Detroit's two-term wonderboy mayor. He was the hip hop mayor. King of elected bling.
Federal cases already take so long, where's the justice in that system? Thank goodness the judge said, keep the lawyer you've had for years and we're going to trial soon.
