A sentencing hearing yesterday sealed the fate of Detroit’s disgraced former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick. He was led to jail to spend 120 days there as part of a plea deal that forced him to resign as mayor and plead guilty to two felonies. The judge had a few words for him before she sent him away. She didn’t much like a speech he gave during a news conference after he pleaded guilty in September — after blaming everyone else for his downfall, he said, “Y’all done set me up for a comeback.”
I don’t think I’ve heard something so arrogant in my entire life. Step your humility game up, sir.
