Detroit mayor indicted for perjury

I got this news today from HotAir. I've chronicled this story overtime here about Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who not only had the misfortune of getting caught in an affair with his now former chief of staff, Christine Beatty. Despite great evidence that proved that he did have an affair he and Ms. Beatty chose to lie about it under oath. Even worse than that (it doesn't seem much different than what happened with President Clinton didn't it, Monica Lewinsky came out of yet another investigation) this affair came out of another investigation over the firing of a police office and a party at Detriot's mayoral mansion. It's turning into even more of a mess!

He is touted as the Hip-Hop mayor. He's a young man and perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that he's run into his problems so far.

Here's a timeline of the scandals so far.
