Detroit's Long Nightmare Is Over

Kilpatrick now expected to plead guilty Thursday morning

Detroit's Mayor, with Governor Granholm's hearings underway, has apparently cut a deal to leave office and accept a negotiated sanction in the text message scandal. At the same time Kwame is negotiating his exit, Christine Beatty is busy taking the fifth amendment in depositions. With Kwame exiting stage left, and a continuing investigation into the death of Tamara Greene ongoing, she may still be in for a rough ride. When the Freep gets those text messages sent in the 48 hours after Greene's death, this story may have another chapter still, with a bigger cast of characters.
