We have an Kwame Kilpatrick Update: Earlier this week, we witnessed the fall and final chapter of the Kwame Kilpatrick saga close its final chapter. The former Mayor of Detroit previously boosted about how his political downfall would be a perfect set up for a major comeback story. As he sits in Milan Federal Correctional Institute in Michigan awaiting sentencing we now wonder how can he turn this around. The youngest Mayor in Detroit’s history faces a possible twenty years in prison. His wife and children still reside in Texas and his father, Bernard Kilpatrick stood beside he only son facing charges himself and being found guilty of filing a false tax return showed the most emotion inside the courtroom. Kilpatrick’s best friend since high school, Bobby Ferguson also is facing up to twenty years in prison is housed in the same jail. It as been reported that the two former political leaders are not receiving special treatment but they remain housed away from general population. 1059 Kiss wanted to know more, so Kiss’s own Midday Host Fantasee Blu placed a call to Federal Correction Institute and luckily she got through. She wasn’t able to speak directly with Kwame Kilpatrick but we did receive some insite on his first day in jail. Below is the transcript of the conversation below…
